This Blended Intensive Programme (BIP) aims addressing the fundamental aspects on the analysis and design of steel connections according to Eurocodes.

The course will cover not only classical simple and moment resistant connections and column base connections, but also more specific topics related to connections in Light Steel Framing (LSF) structures and Tubular Truss Connections.

The use of increasingly more complex steel connections, together with the release of more complex and powerful design software tools, makes this a hugely relevant short course for the industry.
