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

Introduction

Eurocode 2 is the new design standard for the design of elements in concrete buildings. This course will provide background to the provisions in the code and explain how to apply them to building 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 building structures.

After this course delegates will:

● Have an understanding of the content of Eurocode 2 for building structures
● Be able to find their way around Eurocode 2
● Have an understanding of the content of Eurocode 2 for buildings, including:

Materials
Durability
Structural
Analysis

● Know how to apply Eurocode 2 to:

Beams
Foundations
Slabs
Flat Slabs
Columns

● Know how to design for:
