I help students and graduate engineers with structural design skills in steel, concrete, timber etc..

Methodology

A typical session will focus on a particular structural elements using a particular materials. For instance, concrete beam design with work example to help students to understand each step required towards sizing the beam. Once the students is confident, then we move to other elements in concrete, steel, timber, masonry etc..

Experience

I am a Senior Civil/Structural Engineer with more than 10 years experience in the field. I can design to British standards and Eurocodes. I helps students with all aspects of structural design from beam, columns, slabs, foundations, retaining walls, stairs, etc..
