Title: DESIGN OF CONCRETE STRUCTURES TO EN 1992 Speaker: Dr. W. M. C. McKenzie, Edinburgh Napier University, United Kingdom Date: 11 June 2012
Venue: HOTEL HILTON PJ,No 2 Jalan Barat, Petaling Jaya, Malaysia 46200 Workshop fee: It will be updated soon
Synopsis:In March 2010 all fifty-seven Structural Design Standards published by BSI British Standards were withdrawn and replaced by the new suite of fifty-eight Structural Design Eurocodes and National Annexes.These Eurocodes, developed over many years, will now become the definitive design standards across Europe and in many countries worldwide where British and other European Standards have been previously adopted. As part of this process EN 1992:Design of Concrete Structures - (Eurocode 2), has replaced BS8110 and, whilst there are many similarities in principle between the two codes, there are some significant differences in both principle and detail. This one-day workshop is aimed at civil and structural engineers seeking an understanding of the general rules, main features and changes contained in Eurocode 2 and the accompanying National Annex. Reference will be made to the accompanying codes EC (Basis of Structural Design) and EC1 (Actions on Structures).The workshop will cover the Eurocode system, basis of design, structural loading, material properties, design at the ultimate limit state and at the serviceability limit state. Worked examples with direct reference to Code Clauses will be used to illustrate the application of the code requirements.
