This one-day online course introduces timber as an engineering material, with a focus on its use in historic structures. It covers non-destructive techniques for condition assessment and strategies for the reuse of heritage structures.
This course provides participants with detailed knowledge of masonry design to Eurocode 6 Standards and the National Annexes for Eurocodes.
This one-day, online course offers an introduction to timber design to Eurocode 5.
This two-day, online course shows engineers how to arrive at a qualitative solution to both create a structure and check computer results.
The IStructE is pleased to announce their latest publication supporting the climate emergency agenda, Circular economy and reuse: guidance for designers.
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.
A technical site visit and private tour covering the history and engineering of Bennerley Viaduct.
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.
This new guidance is an essential read for any built environment professional developing new (or reusing existing) structures today. Across four principal sections it explains why the adoption of circular economy principles is critical.
