DESIGN OF CONCRETE STRUCTURES TO EUROCODE 2

Tuesday, 22nd May 2018

The UgandaInstitution of Professional Engineers (UIPE) in collaboration with support fromThe Royal Academy of Engineering with pleasure invites Engineers & thegeneral public to participate in the above Continuous Professional Development (CPD)Training which is scheduled to take place from 21st to 22ndJune 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 designprocedures for composite beams and slabs as used in fast track and highproductivity construction. It will cover many forms of composite structural design andprovides the most comprehensive and up to date set of design guidance currentlyavailable. It willalso cover shearconnections, long span floor systems, composite columns, high-rise compositebuildings. Cross references will be made to the other Eurocode parts which areneeded to develop design solutions. Practical examples with direct reference tothe code clauses will be used to illustrate the application of the coderequirements.
