Design of steel structures to Eurocode 3

26 November 2009,  1 day

Venue: Birmingham

Organizer: Thomas Telford

This one day course concentrates on the most commonly encountered aspects of structural steel design, with an emphasis on buildings and the focus is on the provisions of the Part 1.1: General rules and rules for buildings of EN 1993. This is, however, supplemented by material on loading, joints and plated structures. For each of the principal aspects covered, the course provides background to the structural behaviour, explanation of the codified treatment including departure from existing practice (BS 5950), and numerous worked examples.
