Design of Steel Structures To Eurocode 3 - The Essentials

09 March 2010,  1 day

Venue: Belfast

Organizer: Thomas Telford

Eurocode 3 is the new standard for design of steel structures. It covers many forms of steel construction and provides the most comprehensive and up to date set of design guidance currently available. 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 one day course considers the key changes between BS5950 and Eurocode 3, illustrating the design challenges through presentation, discussion and tutorial, and offers expert advice and opinion on the practical application of the new European design codes. The emphasis is on buildings and the provisions of the Part 1.1: General rules and rules for buildings of EN 1993.
