Eurocode 3 Training

(including Tutorials)

This course is intended for Structural Engineers. Some knowledge of steelwork 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.


Eurocode 3 is the current design standard for structural steelwork. This course will introduce the code and explain how to apply it for simple elements in building structures. Practical tutorials allow delegates to understand how to design elements using Eurocode 3.

Aims & Objectives:

On completion of this course delegates will have a knowledge of the principles of Eurocode 3 and be able to apply them to elements in a building structure. It will also introduce delegates to appropriate design aids. 

After this course delegates will:

Have an appreciation of the content of Eurocode 3 for building structures

Know how to apply Eurocode 3 to

o Specification of steelwork

o Frames stability

o Beams

o Slabs

o Connections

Know how to design for

o Flexure

o Shear

o Axial loading

o Deflection

Have an knowledge of the differences with BS 5950

Course Outline:
