Fire Engineering Design of Structures

Fire Engineering Design of Structures


A continuing Professional Development Course in Structural Fire Engineering

Internally, the course forms part of an MEng/MSc module in Structural Fire Engineering. For external delegates, it is possible to attend, either in person or online, for any combination of days, with the fees being pro rata. Powerpoint handouts will be provided, together with additional background materials and spreadsheets.

The course will be of use to structural engineers, building control authorities and others involved in ensuring fire resistance of buildings. It will be of use to those who wish to understand the background and principles of structural fire engineering, particularly in the context of the considerable advances in the state of the art which have taken place over the past two decades.

Circular Economy Symposium

Circular Economy Symposium


Towards a circular built environment: bridging the gap between research and practice.

A shift to a circular economic built environment is essential to reduce global material demand and associated carbon emissions. Despite this, it is still far from mainstream practice. This one-day symposium hosted by the University of Sheffield will bring together international researchers and practitioners to share leading work progressing towards a circular built environment.

The event aims to facilitate meaningful, bi-directional knowledge transfer and discussion between researchers and practitioners on techniques to both implement and assess circularity within the built environment. It will be made up of keynote speakers, shorter oral presentations and poster sessions, and we actively encourage attendance of researchers and practitioners from across the built environment and at all career stages.
