Eurocode 2 for Bridges Designers

Eurocode 2 is the new design standard for structural concrete in bridges. This course will provide background to the provisions in the code and explain how to apply them to bridge 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 bridge structures.

After this course delegates will:
 Have a knowledge of Basis of design (EC0) and traffic loading (EC1-2)
 Have an understanding of the content of Eurocode 2 for bridges, including:
– Materials
– Durability
– Structural Analysis
 Know how to apply Eurocode 2 to:
– Beams
– Slabs
– Piers
– Foundations
– Prestressed elements
 Know how to design for:
– Flexure
– Shear
– Axial loading
– Torsion
– Punching shear
– Strut-and-tie
– Deflection
– Fatigue
 Have an appreciation of precast, plain and lightweight concrete provisions

Course Outline
 Introduction to Eurocode 2 and relationship to other Eurocodes and European Standards
 Basis of design, combinations of actions and traffic loading with design exercise (EC0 and EC1-2)
 Materials, durability, structural analysis and prestressing with design exercise(s)
 Ultimate limit state
o Flexural design with design exercise
o Shear design with design exercise
o Punching shear
o Axial resistance with design exercise
o Strut-and-tie
o Fatigue
 Serviceability limit state
o Deflection
o Crack control
 Foundations
 Detailing of structural elements with design exercise
 Overview of precast, plain and lightweight concrete
 Review of design aids and guidance

Further information
This course is intended for Structural Engineers. Some knowledge of concrete design and Eurocodes 0 and 1 would be useful but not essential. A calculator and pencil are essential, but other required materials will be provided.

Duration: 2 Days

Eurocode Courses in Scotland,  Inverness, Aberdeen, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dunfermline and other sites throughout the UK including onsite closed company courses are available.
