THE "WIND LOADING TO AS/NZS 1170.2" ONLINE TRAINING COURSE
THIS e-LEARNING COURSE IS NOW "LIVE" AND OPEN FOR REGISTRATIONS
Course Duration:2.0 hours of screen time
Inclusions: No inclusions
Platform: PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad or any Android phone/tablet
CPD: A downloadable certificate showing CPD hours is automatically available upon completion
This course is aimed at junior design engineers or engineers with a zero knowledge of (or only limited exposure to) the design of buildings and structures subject to wind actions. The purpose of the 2.0 hour online (e-learning) training course is to:
Provide guidance on how to design buildings and structures in accordance with AS/NZS 1170.2
Provide key historical wind loading details as well as key first principle fundamentals of wind loading theory
Highlight design tips and traps for inexperienced designers
Illustrate how AS/NZS 1170.2 can be used for wind loading design through the use of video tutorials which demonstrate example design problems
Provide specific instruction on key interpretations of the standard.
Note: This is a "fundamentals" level course where basic and intermediate level design concepts are presented. We therefore only provided limited information relating to the definition and calculation of the "dynamic response factor" and only example problems featuring buildings and structures which are not dynamically wind sensitive are presented.
This course consists of twelve modules. The format of the modules is a mix of narrated slides, wind tunnel simulations, video, worked example video tutorials and a quiz. Each module is designed to be completed in "small chunks" of up to 15 minutes duration. You can stop at any time and our learning management system (hosted by Litmos) will return you to the exact point in the course where you last finished when you login next time around.
