Basic Structural Steel Design – Eurocode 0 & 3 Training

ABOUT THE COURSE
This course covers tow topics: Basic Steel Structural Design & Eurocode 0 & 3 Steel Structures.
Day One of the course will overview different types of steel frames and their design requirements. Various lectures will include the behaviour and design of beams, behaviour and design of compression and tension members. The last lecture will be on analysis and design of steel connections which will involve types of connections, bolting vs welding, analysis of simple connections and design checks for bolts and welts.

Day Two of the course will start with an overview of Eurocode 0 which comprises of design requirements, limit state design principles, basic variables and load combinations. Subsequent lectures will involve; design checks for beams, local buckling, shear/bending resistance, serviceability limit state checks and examples. Also, it will involve design checks for compression and tension members, design for combined axial load and bending and examples. Finally the course will conclude with design checks for bolts and welds under different loading situations and examples.
