A guide to the field of structural engineering in relation to buildings for construction industry professionals

This course is a great opportunity for engineering industry professionals who might need an understanding of structural engineering in their day-to-day job but are not trained structural engineers. The course will also allow knowledge of the tools available to structural engineers to counter various effects and appreciate the concept of efficient design and its impact on embodied energy cost.

Learning outcomes

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

  • Gain appreciation of how forces due to gravity and other effects are resisted in a building’s structure
  • A knowledge of the tools available to the structural engineer to counter these effects
  • Appreciate the concept of efficient design and its impact on embodied energy cost
  • Gain an appreciation of finite element analysis methods
  • Appreciate concepts such as ‘statically determinate’, ‘nonlinear analysis, ‘local effects’, and ‘composite elements’
