Structural engineers consider the safety of structures from design and construction through to operation and demolition, in accordance with local legislation.
Structural engineers are key to ensuring that the built environment is robust and that lessons are learnt. This topic impacts upon the collaborative nature of construction and the need to ensure responsibilities are clearly defined at the outset of projects.
Effective retention and communication of project information, including maintenance and refurbishment, is paramount in ensuring the safety of society.
Email updates are the best way to receive the latest safety information and news from CROSS, including the Newsletter. Register for a CROSS account and sign up to emails from the CROSS regions that are relevant to you to stay up to date.
Collaborative Reporting for Safer Structures (CROSS) publishes reports on fire and structural safety incidents and near-misses. Each report also contains expert analysis and insight to prevent future occurrences. CROSS-UK Newsletter 67 is now available.
This two-day, online course extends the principles developed in the Understanding Structural Behaviour course. It covers more complex real structures and failures; and the important skills of approximate analysis for checking computer output and member sizing.
This course provides guidance on specific aspects of demolition and refurbishment from an engineering perspective whilst addressing safety, environmental and sustainability influences.
This popular one-day, online course offers guidance on the design, stability, safety and performance of tall buildings.
This one-day, online course offers an introduction to timber design to Eurocode 5.
This course equips practising engineers to undertake the full structural design of a building, including designing a robust building to avoid disproportionate collapse. The course covers designing buildings of Class 1 – 2B and alterations/change of use of existing buildings.
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.
Societal, technological, regulatory, and legislative drivers are encouraging unprecedented innovation in the construction industry. Join industry leader for an e-conference exploring how you can keep pace and ensure your business is adapting in this rapidly changing world.
This advanced one-day, online course delivers key advice using worked examples on the seismic design of structures to Eurocode 8, as well as the application of the Eurocode. Emphasis is placed on reinforced concrete buildings although the concepts are widely applicable.
The Building Safety Act puts in new and enhanced regulatory regimes for building safety and construction products. This event will provide an overview of what it means for practising structural engineers.
