Design of Concrete Structures To Eurocode 2 - The Workshop
13 - 14 April 2010, 2 days
Organizer: Thomas Telford
Eurocode 2 is the new standard for design of concrete structures. It is a robust and rigorous design code and but takes a less prescriptive approach to design. As such it offers flexibility and opportunity in design but will require clear understanding and careful application.
This two day course delivers a comprehensive and detailed workshop on the use and application of Eurocode 2 for the design of concrete building structures. Making extensive use of tutorials to reinforce the learning points, it considers all the key aspects of reinforced concrete design including flexure, shear, deflection, columns, detailing, and spread foundations.
For each aspect Eurocode design concepts are explained and discussed in detail including departure from existing practice (BS 8110). The learning is reinforced through extensive worked examples and tutorials.
Key emphasis is placed on practical design, developing capability and familiarity with Eurocode 2; this workshop style learning will benefit those seeking extended practical guidance on the application of Eurocode 2 and clear advice and opinion from a key Eurocode expert.
