For engineers and engineering technicians looking to get a handle on how EC5 affects connections, BM TRADA’s forthcoming Eurocode 5 Connections
workshop is the ideal training ground.
The Eurocode 5 Connections
workshop, due to take place on December 3rd, attendees will be given an introduction to fasteners by BM TRADA’s Dr Hugh Mansfield-Williams, and an introduction to connections by Dr Keerthi Ranasinghe, also of BM TRADA.
Designed to build on knowledge gained from the Introductory Workshop
, the content includes things such as dowel type fasteners, an introduction to Johansen theory, embedment strength, yield moment, axial effects and the rope effect, as well as the calculation of lateral load capacities.
Dr Ranasinghe said: “Connections pose a unique challenge for designers and probably constitute one of the most detailed yet frequently misunderstood aspects of EC5. And Eurocode 5 offers the designer more potential than they might realise, as our introductory workshop will illustrate.”
The workshop will use practical worked examples “to bring clarity and facilitate a better understanding of the intricacies of EC5”, Dr Ranasinghe added. Printed worked examples, which will act as invaluable future references, are included in the delegate fee.
The Eurocode 5 Connections Workshop
costs £130 + VAT for TRADA members and £179 + VAT for non-members. For further information, visit the Eurocode 5 connections
