New SiCA lecture: Plate girder behaviour and design part 1

Our most recent lecture in the SiCA: Steel in Construction Academy introduces the basic aspects of the behaviour and design of modern plate girders. How the typical proportions employed influence the types of behaviour that must be addressed in design are examined, and the identification of the various buckling considerations involved as preparation for the subsequent consideration of the design approaches of Eurocode 3 are explained.

Learn all about it in our newest SiCA lecture.

SiCA: Steel in Construction Academy

SiCA is a self-learning online platform for those in, or joining, the construction industry focussed on the use of steel as the material of choice for construction applications and required performances.

Sustainable and circular construction, composite construction, steel performances, construction physics, applied stability, steel grades and qualities, and mechanical properties are just some of the topics covered in SiCA.

New lectures are being added regularly, and we will keep you updated!
