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 covers the design of common structural elements to Eurocode 2. Participants will be introduced to concrete material properties and learn about designing for durability and fire.
This one-day, online course offers an introduction to timber design to Eurocode 5.
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 two-day course shows engineers how to arrive at a qualitative solution to both create a structure and check computational results.
This course introduces key concepts in vibration serviceability of building floors. Techniques for analysis, design and mitigation for satisfactory vibration performance are outlined, as well as their potential impact on sustainability of floor construction.
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 focuses on seismic loading and design codes, conceptual seismic design principles and analysis for seismic loading, and design and detailing of structural members.
This two-day, online course shows engineers how to arrive at a qualitative solution to both create a structure and check computational results.
This course establishes good practice in the design of reinforced concrete structures. Through practical exercises, it will cover concept, design, flat slabs and finite element analysis.
