This report covers:
This one-day, online advanced practical workshop will teach complex timber engineering through worked examples. It encourages problem-solving through teaching tools and group discussion.
This course provides guidance on specific aspects of demolition and refurbishment from an engineering perspective whilst addressing safety, environmental and sustainability influences.
This course introduces EN 1991-1-4 for determining wind actions on structures. It outlines the basic principles behind the code and covers each step of the procedure for calculating the wind loads on structures. Attention is given to important features introduced by the UK NA.
The first webinar of a 6-part series on novel materials focuses on low-tech construction materials solutions such as structural stone, unfired mud bricks and roundwood timber.
Engineer Sarah Tattersall talks about the causes behind the collapse of a historical structure and the repair interventions that were carried out by her team.
During late 2022, EEFIT undertook Return Missions to Banda Aceh, Indonesia and Khao Lak, Thailand to investigate their recovery from the devasting 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami and the 2018 Palu Bay, Central Sulawesi, earthquake and tsunami respectively.
Annual grants supporting short-term projects that benefit earthquake disaster mitigation and post-disaster reconnaissance efforts
Lecture detailing the EEFIT hybrid mission to the Mw 7.8 earthquake on 6 February 2023 in Kahramanmaras: Turkey earthquake sequence. Provides information regarding siesmotectonics, geotechnical observations, structural analysis, remote sensing, infrastructure, relief response recovery, key messages and next destination.
Miguel Martinez-Paneda describes current performance-based design uses, and advocates the potential for its wider application in a holistic approach.
Mike Cook sets out a vision for the future in which testing, modelling and a change in mindset allow the construction industry to decarbonise rapidly while ensuring our buildings are safe to occupy and resilient to the effects of climate breakdown.
This breakfast briefing explored how CROSS drives a culture of structural and fire safety reporting across the engineering profession.
A talk from Yasmeen Lari on her architectural career and social justice.
Citing case studies from the Kobe and Christchurch earthquakes in 1995 and 2011, respectively, as well as category five hurricanes in the USA’s south, this book will appeal to both engineers and the general public, writes Alex Hu.
Hear how leading engineers are working to tackle the climate and biodiversity emergency.
A disaster is the last link in a chain of events. This online lecture used case studies to explain how to avoid disasters from happening and how to save a collapsing building.
