Eurocode and Eurocode 1 for Bridge Designers (One-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

The Eurocodes are now the British Standards for the design of structures. An understanding of Eurocode (EC0) and Eurocode 1 (EC1) is essential for building designers to be able to design using the material Eurocodes (EC2 to EC6). This course will explain how to use both EC0 and EC1 to determine the design loads and actions on a bridge.

Aims & objectives

On completion of this course delegates will know understand the limit state principles of the Eurocodes and how to determine self-weight, imposed, wind, snow, thermal and accidental actions on a bridge through the use of lectures and workshop problems.

After this course delegates will:

  • Understand the design approach of the Eurocodes

  • Understand how the Eurocodes relate to each other and other European Standards

  • Be able to determine combinations of actions

  • Be able to establish the actions on a bridge due to:

    • Self-weight

    • Traffic loads

    • Wind

    • Thermal effects

  • Understand how to design a structure to resist accidental actions

  • Be ready to use the material Eurocodes
