WOODS:
from REHABILITATION to SIZING

Module 1: 21-23 November (after work)  |  Module 2: 28-30 November and 5 December (after work)

Module 3: 07, 12 and  14 December (after work)

|  Módulo 2: 28-30 Outubro (pós-laboral)
 

This course is a partnership between IASA and CEEC / ISEL

 

IASA and CEEC / ISEL develop joint theoretical and practical training in order to provide engineering and architecture professionals with the skills necessary to perform their duties, regardless of their previous academic background and which is usually very varied.

FRAMEWORK 

Objectives

The Circular Economy is today underlying most construction projects. More sustainable products that have a long life cycle are increasingly an option. Wood as a construction material is versatile, as it has the ability to be reborn, reproduce, reuse, recover, recycle and reuse, presenting itself as a circular and sustainable economic model. However, there are gaps in their knowledge of wooden structures, whether in the act of designing wooden structures, or in construction work in their application and still serious failures in rehabilitation. ​

 

The Wood course: from Dimensioning to Rehabilitation is divided into 3 modules: ​

Module 1 - Rehabilitation of Wood Structures

Knowing the behavior of the “wood” material, the types of degradation and the means of diagnosis is essential to correctly intervene in rehabilitation projects. ​

 

Module 2 - Calculation of Timber Structures according to Eurocode 5 (EN 1995-1:2014)

The Eurocodes, in this module, will support the structural calculation, as well as a set of European regulations. These regulations present a vast domain of complex and demanding matters, which must be adopted for the design of structures. ​

 

Module 3 - Automatic Calculation of ROBOT

Wood Structures Training action on Automatic Calculation of Wood Structures using the Autodesk RobotÒ calculation software.

GOALS 

Recipients

This course has the following general objectives:

Promote knowledge of the material “wood” and its main characteristics as a construction material;

To make known examples for the correct use of wood and its rehabilitation;

Provide designers with a set of rules and design methods that fit and facilitate the design of this type of structures, according to Eurocode 5 (EC5). ​

 

Module 1 - Rehabilitation of Wooden Structures

Understand the importance and usefulness of the rehabilitation of wooden structures in old buildings, in the context of the conservation and restoration of the built heritage.

Knowing the behavior of the “wood” material, the types of degradation and the means of diagnosis, with the aim of evaluating the need for treatment or reinforcement and what intervention techniques are, as well as the care of wood application on site. ​

 

Module 2 - Calculation of Wood Structures according to Eurocode 5 (EN 1995-1:2014)

Provide trainees with contact with practical cases of design of wooden structures and derivatives in the design of these structures, whether in the rehabilitation phase or in new constructions.

Carry out the design of practical cases and apply practical rules to assess the bearing capacity of existing structural elements in the context of rehabilitation. ​

 

Module 3 - Automatic Calculation of ROBOT® Wood Structures

Acquire skills in the automatic calculation of wooden structures using the commercial software Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis (version 2022).

Develop numerical finite element models (2D and/or 3D) of wooden structures in the context of new construction and rehabilitation.

Analyze results from the point of view of decision support and feasibility of structural solutions.

Use the specific module for dimensioning wooden structures according to Eurocode 5.

 

Prerequisite: the trainee must have the Autodesk software program installed on his computer - Robot Structural Analysis (student or trial version - see www.autodesk.com, after registration he can access the student or trial version).
