Design of Steel Structures to Eurocode 3
21 October 2009, 1 day
Organizer: Thomas Telford
Eurocode 3 is the new standard for design of steel structures and the key parts of the code have now been finalised. It covers many forms of steel construction and provides the most comprehensive and up to date set of design guidance currently available. 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.
