Publish Date – 1 October 2022
This CPD module, sponsored by Farrat, examines the realities of designing for the competing requirements of structural, thermal and fire performance through the lens of structural thermal breaks.
Publish Date – 1 July 2022
This CPD module, sponsored by Buildsoft, explores the benefits of advanced structural analysis software when calculating cracked deflections of reinforced concrete beams and floor slabs.
Publish Date – 1 June 2022
This CPD module, sponsored by SCIA, explores the productivity benefits that structural engineers could gain by adopting a parametric approach to design.
Publish Date – 1 March 2022
This CPD module, sponsored by Griffiths & Armour, offers guidance to engineers on when they should notify their professional indemnity insurers about potential claims on their policy.
Publish Date – 1 February 2022
The CPD module, sponsored by Farrat, discusses the use of structural thermal breaks to reduce energy transfer and loss between structurally loaded building details.
Publish Date – 5 July 2021
This CPD module, sponsored by MAPEI, introduces the use of FRP for the structural strengthening of reinforced concrete structures. It provides an overview of the composite materials and the design approach for flexural, shear and axial strengthening.
Publish Date – 28 May 2021
This CPD module, sponsored by IDEA StatiCa UK, introduces CBFEM, a method to analyse and design connections of steel structures, which is a synergy of the standard approach to connection design (component method) and finite elements.
Publish Date – 30 April 2021
This CPD module, sponsored by Steel for Life, examines a number of steel’s credentials specifically on its ability to be reused, recycled and multi-cycled, its structural efficiency as a construction material, and its alignment and application to circular economy principles.
Publish Date – 25 February 2021
This CPD module, sponsored by Steel for Life, examines the embodied carbon credentials of steel and its potential to contribute to a zero-carbon future.
Publish Date – 13 November 2020
This CPD module, sponsored by Steel for Life, will look at the structural steelwork construction process with a focus on established off-site processes and practices and the benefits provided.
Publish Date – 1 June 2020
This CPD module, sponsored by SCIA, introduces best practice guidelines for performing seismic analysis using the Modal Response Spectrum Method in finite element software. These principles ought to be well understood when applied to 3D models.
Publish Date – 1 May 2020
This CPD module, sponsored by Steel for Life, provides an introduction to fire protection of new steel-framed buildings. It will provide an overview of the performance of steel in fire, legislation and standards on fire resistance, fire resistance periods and fire protection options for steel-framed buildings.
Publish Date – 3 March 2020
Modern construction projects produce an enormous amount of data, which can become a great risk for engineering companies and other AEC firms. This CPD module, sponsored by Newforma, examines various digital workflows which are suitable to tackle those challenges.
