In this reseach project, a circular, segmented, concrete shell system is used as a sustainable building floor thanks to automated construction, computational design and digital fabrication.
This course gives guidance on the key considerations when planning the construction of deep basements. It covers using both embedded wall bottom-up and top-down construction in accordance with Eurocodes 2 and 7.
This one-day, online course offers an introduction to timber design to Eurocode 5.
The current demand for many floors is open plan, slender and lightweight. As such, vibration and not strength govern their design. This course will equip engineers to appreciate state-of-the-art vibration serviceability design and assessment for low-frequency, high-frequency floors, cross-laminated timber and other lightweight floors and best practice in testing and mitigation.
This two-day, online course introduces seismic design of civil engineering structures. It builds on the basics of structural dynamics and engineering seismology. The course focusses on seismic loading and design codes, conceptual seismic design principles and analysis for seismic loading, and design and detailing of structural members.
A technical presentation illustrating the design and construction of the concrete fortifications in the Channel Islands which were built during the Second World War.
This two-day, online course shows engineers how to arrive at a qualitative solution to both create a structure and check computer results.
