21 March, London 13 April, Manchester 25 May, Camberley Post-Tensioned Concrete Suspended Slabs Post-tensioned concrete is increasingly becoming the preferred solution for suspended floors. This course aims to provide engineers with the design methodology and tools necessary to scheme effective posttensioned suspended slab solutions. In particular, the course examines the issues of shear at column heads, long-term shortening effect on columns and shear walls, detailing around voids and secondary reinforcement.
23 March, London 28 March, Norwich 30 March, Watford 11 April, Cardiff 2 May, Edinburgh 9 May, London An Introduction to Eurocode 2: Design of Concrete Structures An evening seminar aimed at providing an in-depth introduction to Eurocode 2. European codes and standards will soon replace the current British standards. Designers will have to become familiar with a new set of documents, their terminology and the interaction between them.
29-30 March, Camberley Design Workshop to Eurocode 2 Including the UK Annex This practical workshop will cover all sections of the new code, including fire design, detailing and durability. The major thrust of the two-day course is to provide sessions for working through examples on design and detailing of structural elements, including the use of the UK Annex of BS EN 1992-1-1: Design of Concrete Structures. Extensive course materials are provided, including the National Annex and the Concrete Centre's 'How To' series of design sheets, which are referenced during the tutorial sessions.
26 April, London Concrete Elegance - Heat and Concrete: Enlarging Horizons for the Modern Home (in association with the Building Centre Trust) This lecture will cover the following projects: CVO Firebowls, by Carolyn and Christian Van Outerstep; and Lighting and Concrete Radiator Designs, by Max Kant.
27 April, Watford Modern Concrete for Residential Buildings This seminar day will cover modern concrete methods of residential construction and will include basement construction, Part L, sustainable homes, innovative systems and value-added concrete walls and floors.
4 May, Birmingham 18 May, London Soil Stabilisation: The Sustainable Solution Interest in soil stabilisation is growing. It offers both a sustainable and an economic solution to deal with contaminated or poor-quality land.
This seminar gives an introduction to the process and will demonstrate the wide range of applications that are suitable for treatment using the stabilisation technique.
