Thin-shell textile reinforced concrete floors for low-carbon buildings - Will Hawkins
In this research project, a novel vaulted concrete flooring system was developed which dramatically reduces material usage and embodied carbon. This work was carried out in partnership with University of Bath, University of Cambridge and UK FIRES.
This course gives guidance on the key considerations when planning the construction of deep basements. It covers using both embedded wall bottom-up and top-down construction in accordance with Eurocodes 2 and 7.
This one-day, online course offers an introduction to timber design to Eurocode 5.
The current demand for many floors is open plan, slender and lightweight. As such, vibration and not strength govern their design. This course will equip engineers to appreciate state-of-the-art vibration serviceability design and assessment for low-frequency, high-frequency floors, cross-laminated timber and other lightweight floors and best practice in testing and mitigation.
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.
This two-day, online course shows engineers how to arrive at a qualitative solution to both create a structure and check computer results.
Join industry leaders and explore the factors driving change in structural engineering: society and technology; process and materials; regulatory and legislative. This e-conference will help you keep your business creative, profitable, and sustainable in a rapidly changing world.
This one-day, online course covers the design of common structural elements to Eurocode 2.
A breakfast briefing, sponsored by Getzner, on elastic building isolation and how it can be used to achieve both dynamic optimisation and structural integrity.
