Understanding Structural Behaviour (Online), Online, Tuesday, 01. December 2020

Delivery


Our Training and Events Team has been working hard to ensure that the quality of our training does not differ despite no longer being in the classroom. We understand the importance of interacting with tutors and engaging with other delegates, and this has been prioritised when transferring our courses onto an online platform.


This course will be delivered virtually via Zoom and divided into manageable sessions. The content remains the same as the in-house version of the course and the group size is still limited to allow the same level of interaction to take place between delegates and the tutor(s).


Further information regarding timings for the course will be sent to delegates closer to the start date.



Learning outcomes


By the end of the course, you should be able to:



Review the modelling process


Recognise the fundamental behaviour of structural elements


Appreciate overall structural equilibrium


Describe the behaviour of 3D structures


Interpret and explain the behaviour of real structures


Reduce complex structures to simpler forms


Comprehend the approximate analysis of sub-frames for member sizing


Describe the case studies: Swiss Re HQ, London, and Centre Pompidou, Paris.




Tutor





Dr David Brohn


David teaches structural engineering in the UK and internationally. David pioneered the ‘Brohn Test’ in the early 1970s, leading the way in evidence-based tracking of levels of understanding structural behaviour amongst graduates. He was awarded the Institution's President’s Award in recognition of his visionary approach to the education of students and graduates.


Tim Lai




Tim teaches budding graduates both in the UK and internationally about structural engineering, finance and entrepreneurship through his training company 'The Structural Exam'. Formerly an Engineering Leadership Award winner with the Royal Academy of Engineering, he then worked at Shell as an Offshore Structural Engineer before venturing into entrepreneurship.



Intended for


Recently qualified graduates under training who wish to improve their skills in structural modelling. The course will also be of interest to experienced engineers who are returning to the structural design office. The course is excellent preparation for the Institution's Chartered Membership exam.



Entry criteria


Attendance at the Understanding structural behaviour course is an essential prerequisite.
