Design of Concrete Structures - Eurocodes versus British Standards

Event code : 78015

Since 1 April 2015, all structural plans submission have to be based on Eurocode (EC) design standards. EC was developed over the last 30 years by experts from the European Union and is considered as one of the world’s most advanced and established building codes. This move is part of BCA’s ongoing efforts in raising the standards of structural building design.
To prepare engineers for the adoption of EC in the design of reinforced concrete structures, this workshop will approach the design of concrete structures using EC in comparison with BS 8110. The workshop will contain lectures as well as hands-on tutorial sessions to provide participants with practical design experience.
This workshop is jointly organised by BCA Academy and Protective Technology Research Centre of Nanyang Technological University.

The workshop aims to prepare the participants to:
• Appreciate the design approach based on the EC;
• Appreciate the essential differences between EC2 and BS 8110 in:
- Basis of structural design and action on structures;
- Design procedures and results for beams, slabs and columns;
- Detailing rules of columns, walls, beams and slabs to EC2
