COURSE DETAILS

The Surrey Regional Group is holding a CPD Course on Fire Engineering led by Jenny Burridge of The Concrete Centre and Roger Plank of Sheffield University. It is intended for structural engineers seeking to expand their understanding of and skills in tackling design for structures in fire conditions.

The course will cover the principles of fire engineering, the behaviour and design of common structural materials and members, and how real structures perform in fire.

Where:

Lecture Theatre M, University of Surrey, Guildford, Surrey, GU2 7XH

When:

Wednesday 7th September 2022, from 10.00 to 16.00 (registration from 9.30)

CPD: 1 day Price: £175

Entry Criteria

Some exposure to design for fire and knowledge of terminology would be of benefit.

Roger Plank CEng MICE FIStructE

Roger Plank recently retired as Professor of Structural Engineering/Architecture at the University of Sheffield, where he established an internationally renowned research group studying the behaviour of building structures in fire.

The software developed for modelling this formed the basis of the commercial package Vulcan, which subsequently won BT’s prestigious software innovation award, and is now widely recognised as a leader in its field.

Roger continues to undertake research and consultancy in fire engineering and is a Director of Vulcan Solutions, a specialist company offering fire engineering software and consultancy services.

He has held a number of prominent positions in both the steel construction sector and the Institution of Structural Engineers, serving as President in 2011.
