(New) Design of Concrete Structures to Eurocode 2 – The Essentials

Request info

Course duration: 1 Day

Cost: £295 + VAT

Eurocode 2 is the new standard for design of concrete structures. It is a robust and rigorous design code and but takes a less prescriptive approach to design. As such it offers flexibility and opportunity in design but will require clear understanding and careful application.

This one day course considers the key changes between BS8110 and Eurocode2, illustrating the design challenges through presentation, discussion and tutorial, and offers expert advice and opinion on the practical application of the new European design codes. The emphasis is on buildings and the provisions of the Part 1.1: General rules and rules for buildings of EN 1992.

Is it for me? If you are an experienced designer, competent with design to current British Standards and looking for transition training covering the key changes between the BS codes and Eurocodes, then the 1 day Essentials course will meet your requirements.

What will I learn? For each of the principal aspects covered, the course provides background to the structural behaviour, explanation of the codified treatment including departure from existing practice (BS 8110), illustrating with worked examples where appropriate.

The tutor is a chartered civil and structural engineer with extensive practical experience in the design of building and civil engineering structures.


At the end of the course you should be able to:
Undertake the design of basic reinforced concrete structures to Eurocode 2
Recognise the principle differences between Eurocode 2 and BS8110
Have an appreciation of the Eurocode suite and their impact on UK design practice

Intended for

Experienced Civil and Structural Engineers who design or supervise the design of reinforced concrete structures.
