As the experts in steel design, the SCI have prepared this course as an overview of the Eurocode provisions for steel building design. It focuses on orthodox construction, covering the primary design issues for practicing engineers. The course follows the process of determining actions, considering combinations of actions, frame analysis and the assessment of second order effects and then demonstrates how the resistance of members are calculated, but also how they can be extracted immediately from resources such as the ‘Blue Book’.
This on-line version consists of 4 Sessions.
Part 1 – 20 Oct
Part 2 – 22 Oct
Part 3 – 27 Oct
Part 4 -29 Oct
Timing: 10 am – 12.00 pm
This course will equip any engineer with:
An overview of the Eurocode suite design document, and the critical importance of the National Annex
How the appropriate steel sub-grade determined
A good understanding of the important ULS and SLS load combinations from EN 1990
A good understanding of the key parts of BS EN 1993-1-1
A set of numerical examples covering frame stability, axial resistance, LTB and combined axial load and bending
A good understanding of connection design to BS EN 1993-1-8
