Thin-shell textile reinforced concrete floors for low-carbon buildings - Will Hawkins
In this research project, a novel vaulted concrete flooring system was developed which dramatically reduces material usage and embodied carbon. This work was carried out in partnership with University of Bath, University of Cambridge and UK FIRES.
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.
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 the analysis and strengthening of concrete buildings built from 1950 – 1985
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.
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.
The first webinar of a 2-part series on digital optimisation focuses on the opportunities for business benefits, improved quality and increased performance generated by implementing efficient digital workflows in your practice.
