Design of Steel Structures to Eurocode 3 - The Workshop
20 - 21 January 2011, 2 days
Organizer: Thomas Telford
This two-day course delivers a comprehensive and detailed review of the use and application of Eurocode 3 for the design of steel building structures. It considers all the key aspects of structural steel design including structural behaviour, materials, structural components and joints. For each aspect Eurocode design concepts are explained and discussed in detail including departure from existing practice (BS 5950).
Presenter: The tutor is a chartered civil and structural engineer and senior lecturer at Imperial College London. He leads an active research group in steel structures and has a particular interest in design guidance for steel structures. He has published widely, including co-authoring two steel design textbooks to Eurocode 3, and has also contributed to the formulation of the design rules for Eurocode 3.
