Eurocode 2 in detail for bridge designers (two-day)

In-house Course

This course can be delivered in the offices of a company to a group of up to 16 engineers. It is currently not available as a public course.

Introduction

Eurocode 2 is the new design standard for structural concrete in bridges. This course will provide
background to the provisions in the code and explain how to apply them to bridge structures. Practical workshop sessions allow delegates to get to grips with the details and be confident of using Eurocode 2 for real projects.

Aims & Objectives

On completion of this course delegates will have a knowledge of the principles of Eurocode 2 and be able to apply them to bridge structures.

After this course delegates will:

  • Have a knowledge of Basis of design (EC0) and traffic loading (EC12)
  • Have an understanding of the content of Eurocode 2 for bridges, including:

Materials
Durability
Structural
Analysis

  • Know how to apply Eurocode 2 to:

Beams
Foundations
Slabs
Pre-stressed elements
Piers

  • Know how to design for:

Flexure
Punching shear
Shear
Strut and tie
Axial loading
Deflection
Torsion
Fatigue

  • Have an appreciation of precast, plain and lightweight concrete provisions

Course Outline

  • Introduction to Eurocode 2 and relationship to other Eurocodes and European Standards
  • Basis of design, combinations of actions and traffic loading with design exercise (EC0 and EC12)
  • Materials, durability, structural analysis and pre-stressing with design exercise(s)
  • Ultimate limit state

Flexural design with design exercise
Shear design with design exercise
Punching shear
Axial resistance with design exercise
Strut and tie
Fatigue

  • Serviceability limit state

Deflection
Crack control

  • Foundations
  • Detailing of structural elements with design exercise
  • Overview of precast, plain and lightweight concrete
  • Review of design aids and guidance

Further information

This course is intended for Structural Engineers. Some knowledge of concrete design and Eurocodes 0 and 1 would be useful but not essential. A calculator and pencil are essential, but other required materials will be provided.
