Structural Loading: Loading Types and Forces
NB – I have opened this lifetime access course early. Those who join early will get to choose what examples, exercises and resources are added to the course. Think of it as a course personally developed to your needs.
By the end of this course you will be able to pick out the correct loading type for your design and have an understanding of the limit state design. Using real world examples, you will have the tools to make you more relevant in an office environment. The loading code used in the creation of this course is the Eurocode.
I have designed this course for engineers early in their career that are looking to take the theory based learning and apply it to real world design cases. The on demand videos and quizzes focus not only running through the theory, but also real world situations that are not often found in text books.
The main items we’ll focus on in this course are:
Loading Types (dead, live, wind, snow and accidental)
Limit State Design (ultimate and serviceability)
Forces Refresher (point, uniformly distributed and moment)
Design Working Life
The focus is on taking you beyond the textbook theory to real world design situations to make you more relevant and proficient in the office.
This course has been specifically designed to give value to you, the student, and lifetime access means you will receive all future updates and additions free of charge.
If you are not 100% sure this course is for you, feel free to take a look around. If you are not convinced, there is a 30 day money back guarantee with no hard feelings or questions asked.
Thanks for taking the time to view this course, and I hope to see you in there!!
Review of the dead or permanent load case looking at the self-weight, finishes plant, partitions and earth loading
Review of the live or imposed loads which covers; residential loading, public or areas where people may congregate, vehicle and movable partitions
Review of wind loading covering the effects of building shape, terrain, position and time on the wind loading
Review of snow load including country, altitude and building shape on snow design
Accidental loading review, a lot of which is due to historic failures such as Ronan Point. We'll look at what to consider and why.
With a quick look at the fire considerations.
Forces Types (Reminder)
A reminder on what point and uniformly distributed loads are.
An example of a beam subject to a point and uniformly distributed load used to calculate the shear and moment forces
Quick look at moment forces
Limit State Design
Introduction to load factors used in the limit state design
Review of the ultimate and serviceability limit states and what to consider for each state.
Design Working Life
