During these uncertain times SCI are still here to help support everyone involved in Steel construction. We are delivering our monthly Member webinars as usual and are also currently offering a series of 3 Portal Frame Design webinars to both non-members and members.
These three webinars will give an overview of portal frame design to the Eurocodes. This will include good (and bad!) practice in detailing and member verification at critical locations. The webinars will demonstrate how second-order effects – usually important in portal frames – are assessed and allowed for. Attendees will be sent a series of questions before the first webinar to consider. Questions emailed in can be dealt with the following week.
Part 1 – 2 April – 11.00 am to 12.00 pm
Frame anatomy, Loading and load combinations, best practice detailing – and what to watch
Part 2 – 9 April – 11.00 am to 12.00 pm
Assessment of second order effects and member verification
Part 3 – 16 April – 11.00 am to 12.00 pm
