WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND
This course is aimed at civil and structural engineers seeking an understanding of the general rules, main features of Eurocode 3 Part 1-1: General rules and rules for buildings. The course will cover design of structural components, structural loading, material properties, design at the ultimate and serviceability limit states. Verification for member resistance using hand calculation procedures and tabulated design data will be explained. Worked examples with direct reference to the clauses in Eurocode EC3 will be used to illustrate the application of the code requirements.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Design Engineer, Structural Engineer, Architects, Academician, Students
- Introduction: overall view of Eurocode EC3; terminology and conventions; design load combinations; mechanical properties of steel; partial factors for limit state design; nominal yield strength of steel. Local buckling and section classification and how to avoid local buckling.
- Beams: shear resistance; shear area, moment resistance, effect of high shear, serviceability deflections; example; Lateral torsional buckling (LTB); how to avoid LTB; design of lateral restraints; buckling resistance of rolled and welded beams; unbraced length; moment gradient effect; beam with intermediate lateral restraints; cantilever beam; examples.
- Compression member: Factors affecting column buckling; elastic critical load and buckling length; selection of buckling curves and imperfections; design procedure; checks; interaction factors. Simple frames: columns in simple construction; nominal moments due to eccentricity of loads; column moments; simplified buckling check.
