DESIGN OF CONCRETE STRUCTURES TO EUROCODE 2

Tuesday, 22nd May 2018

The UgandaInstitution of Professional Engineers (UIPE) with support from The RoyalAcademy of Engineering with pleasure invites Engineers & the general publicto participate in the above Continuous Professional Development (CPD) Trainingwhich is scheduled to take place from 21st to 22nd June 2018 at Royal Suites Hotel Bugolobi

BACKGROUND & TRAININGOBJECTIVES:

UIPEhas acquired a grant from the Royal Academy of Engineering under the GlobalChallenges Research Fund (GCRF) Africa Catalyst Program Phase II with theoverall objective to support UIPE in building capacity of Ugandan Engineers andequipping them with the skills to enhance their professionalism. The RoyalAcademy of Engineering promotes excellence in the science, art and practice ofEngineering.

This CPD training aims to prepare civil and structural engineeringpractitioners for the adoption of the Eurocodes in the design of reinforcedconcrete building structures.

The training will cover primary design issues and design procedures for reinforced concrete beams and slabs as used in fast track and high productivity construction. It will cover many forms of reinforced concrete structural design and provides the most comprehensive and up to date set of design guidance currently available. It will also cover shear design, long span floor systems, reinforcedconcrete beams, reinforced concrete columns, reinforced concrete shear walls, reinforced concrete foundations,   high-rise reinforced concrete buildings. Cross references will be made to the other Eurocode parts which are needed to develop design solutions. Practical examples with direct reference to the code clauses will be used to illustrate the application of the code requirements.
