Expert industry training provider, Exova BM TRADA, will be holding a one day workshop on the concept and essentials of Eurocode 5 in High Wycombe on Tuesday 5 July 2016.
As a suite of European standards applicable to all construction work in all materials, Eurocodes are important industry standards. Eurocode 5 (EC5) is related to timber structures, replacing the British Standard BS5268. This course will compare and contrast the differences between these two standards and will enable delegates to understand and work to the design philosophy of the new standard.
With examples used throughout the day and practical advice on working with Eurocodes, this course is an essential tool for engineers, engineering technicians or those interested in the design and checking of timber structures to EC5.
At the end of the course delegates will have received an introduction to base and loadings Eurocodes and will have an understanding of BS EN 1995 (Eurocode 5, timber design). The course also covers material properties, introductions to BS EN 338 . The course will also examine design elements such as flexural members, vibrations, notches and buckling; and an introduction to connections, which is covered by section 8 of Eurocode 5 and BS EN 14592.
Printed worked examples will be distributed free of charge and will be invaluable for future reference.
