EC4 Composite Design
10 March 2009, 1 day
Organizer: SCI (The Steel Construction Institute)
Combining steel and concrete so that they act together structurally in composite elements can lead to very efficient frame solutions.
This 1 day course will cover the design of composite beams and slabs with reference to Eurocode 4 for composite construction (BS EN 1994-1-1). For some composite elements everyday design is often carried out using alternatives to the complex design procedures, and the use of both design tables and design software will be covered in addition to the basic principles of design. Common problems and misunderstandings will also be highlighted during the course, as well as detailing recommendations.
Please note that this course covers buildings but not bridges
