About this event

The use of glass as a structural material in buildings has become increasingly more common over the past few decades as architects develop more adventurous designs and the desire for well-lit large open areas in buildings becomes more widespread.

Chris O'Regan, Principal Engineer at AECOM and previously a technical author at the IStructE, presents a lecture on the second edition of the IStructE's guide to structural glass design published in February 2014, following a complete revision since its original 1999 release.

The talk will focus on the contents of the publication, discuss the types and behaviour of glass, and offer practical advice on how to successfully design structural glass elements using limit-state theory.

Arrive at 6pm for a 6:30pm start. Light refreshments provided. Free parking is available at the back of the office – access via Upper Marlborough Road.
