Steel Essentials seminars go online
The Steel Essentials seminars that attracted a record number of attendees last year are now available as CPD’s at
Hosted by Tata Steel and the British Constructional Steelwork Association (BCSA), the Steel Essentials CPD’s provide an opportunity for designers to keep up to date with the latest developments on important steel construction related topics.
Industry experts from Tata Steel and the BCSA speak on topics that include practical EC3 design that walks the designer through the design of restrained and unrestrained beams, and simple columns to the Eurocodes.
Other topics included in the CPD’s are EC3 – the questions everyone is asking, steel specification and design that focuses on CE Marking and a presentation entitled steel grades that explains why steel subgrade selection is important and the procedures to follow in both BS5950 and EC3 to ensure the correct specification.
There is also a presentation on determining the fire resistance period for a structure, and how that requirement can be met using standard fire protection systems, and another discussing the sustainability of steel construction.
Also now available at http://www.steelconstruction.info/Continuing_Professional_Development#Steel_Essentials_Seminars_2013 are the cost comparison webinars hosted by Tata Steel and the BSCA, and presented by Gardiner & Theobald with Peter Brett Associates and Mace.
