Eurocodes 0 and 1
What are Eurocodes 1 and 0?
Structural Eurocodes such as Eurocode 1 and Eurocode 0 are recognised as being a significant change from the established design codes Engineers have familiarity with. Is the change so much of a difference or is a fear of the unknown? To help experienced engineers understand the application of these new structural design codes 2 half day CPD training programmes are proposed by the school of the Built and Natural Environment at Glasgow Caledonian University.
Eurocode 1 and 0 training course aims
An outline of the Eurocodes and how the design philosophy applied to all structural materials is common.
Investigate the Construction Product Directive and how it influences the terminology of structural design codes and will effect contract documentation.
Explore the 2 fundamental Eurocodes applicable to all design codes: BSEN1990 Basis of Structural Design and BSEN1991 Actions on structures.
- Samples of evaluating actions on structure: permanent, variable including wind and snow loading.
- Consideration of the factors of safety and the various options available with the code.
- Consideration of the phi factor for load combinations and how they differ from previous BS codes.
Recommended training prior to the Eurocode 1 and 0 course
It is recommended that those attending have experience in designing structures to BS5950, BS5368 and BS8110, or BS5400.
