Design of Steel Structures using Eurocode 3

Event code: 77090


This course is aimed at providing civil and structural engineers a good understanding of the general rules, main features and changes contained in Eurocode 3 and the accompanying Singapore National Annexes. Reference will be made to the accompanying codes EC0 (Basis of Structural Design) and EC1 (Actions on Structures). The course will cover the basis of structural component and frame design, structural loading, material properties, design at the ultimate limit state and the serviceability limit state. Practical examples with direct reference to the code clauses will be used to illustrate the application of the code requirements. Case studies are provided to illustrate clearly the theory of structural stability and design and how they can be applied to avoid structural collapse.


After attending the course, participants will be able to:

1. Enhance their understanding of Eurocode provisions for the design of steel structures;

2. Apply design principles and standards in accordance with Eurocode 3 and Singapore National Annexes in the design of steel buildings;

3. Design structural steel frames and components in accordance with Eurocode 3 design principles & methodology;

4. Avoid common mistakes in design with lessons learned from case studies and collapse investigations.
