SCI’s Portal Frame Design course covers frame design to BS EN 1993-1-1. It will provide in-depth coverage of the major issues surrounding the analysis, design and (crucially) the detailing of portal frames.
It is aimed at structural designers who are involved with conceptual design, detailed design or checking of portal frames.
Having attended the course, you will be able to:
- Properly assess the loading on a portal frame structure;
- Understand the underlying principles of portal frames;
- Confidently check the analysis, design and details of a portal structure.
The course assumes that bespoke software will be used in many designs but will present the background structural mechanics so that the principles are understood, such that a manual design could be completed.
