Designing Non-building Structures

Engineering context

This two-day course is run exclusively by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), the internationally recognised leader in training for engineers and technical professionals.

Although the word ‘structures’ often brings to mind buildings, some of the world’s great feats of engineering are classified as non-building structures - think of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Channel Tunnel and Hoover Dam.

This course will provide participants with tools to design efficient non-building structures that meet the requirements of ASCE/SEI 7-10, the international standard on minimum design loads that acts as a base document for determining wind and seismic forces.

The expert facilitator will use practical examples throughout the course to demonstrate the principles being taught.
