Delivered by Hamish Harvey, this in-person day course gives a good grounding for engineers involved in the assessment of masonry bridges.
The following topics will be covered.
An introduction to the features and use of Archie-M is woven through the course. Questions are welcome at any point, and time is built in to allow discussion.
No prior knowledge of masonry bridge construction and behaviour is assumed. The section on masonry theory builds on basic engineering statics.
Delegates may wish to bring a laptop with a copy of Archie-M installed, and will benefit from exploring Archie-M a little in advance. Trial licences can be arranged if needed.
The course does not cover the assessment standards in detail. It is recommended but not essential that delegates familiarise with the relevant sections of these in advance.
I found the training to be one of the best I have been on. It was extremely informative and the format and opportunity to ask questions to Hamish was really excellent. The content covering both background on the theory, history and construction of arch bridges combined with the practical demonstration of Archie-M and assessments was brilliant. Hopefully we will make this training a regular thing every few years to teach new people about this topic!
