A two-volume package comprising 'Practical guide to structural robustness and disproportionate collapse in buildings' and 'Manual for the systematic risk assessment of high-risk structures against disproportionate collapse'.

Practical guide to structural robustness and disproportionate collapse in buildings:

This guidance responds to a need for information on structural robustness to address the lack of confidence among designers in the application of building regulation requirements. It considers:

  • Fundamental attributes of robustness

  • Legal obligations

  • Interpretation BS EN 1990 (Eurocode 0) and Approved Document A 

  • Designing for robustness

  • Specific issues relating to the four main structual materials

 

Manual for the systematic risk assessment of high-risk structures against disproportionate collapse:

Here, a systematic risk assessment framework is proposed for the design of high-risk structures against disproportionate collapse. The risk-based approach presented considers the full spectrum of natural, accidental and malicious hazards; while several case studies highlight lessons from failures, instances of poor design and examples of good design practice.

Course
Structure partly collapsed upon itself

Seismic design of structures

This two-day, online course introduces seismic design of civil engineering structures. It builds on the basics of structural dynamics and engineering seismology. The course focusses on seismic loading and design codes, conceptual seismic design principles and analysis for seismic loading, and design and detailing of structural members.
