If you have a question about this talk, please contact Karen Mitchell.

Ian and Andy work for the team within Arup that among other things provides internal support and guidance to structural engineers throughout the firm. In particular, they give advice on reinforced concrete, particularly for topics not covered very comprehensively in design codes. Ian will talk about the design of slender reinforced concrete walls and slabs, particularly where they are loaded in-plane in both directions, or in shear, and Andy will discuss strut-and-tie modelling and specifically how, despite the relatively simple theory and code rules, it poses challenges to designers.

Brief biographies:

Ian Feltham has worked for Arup since graduating from Cambridge in 1976. He provides guidance and assistance on the solution of special engineering problems. These include those involving advanced methods of reinforced concrete design, particularly complex structural analysis, buckling of steel structures and other forms of instability, blast loading, statistics and dynamics.

Andy Gardner joined Arup on graduating from Cambridge in 2007. He gained initial experience working as a design engineer on buildings and infrastructure projects in the UK and Australia. He subsequently had a year working for the IStructE before returning to Arup to provide expert technical guidance on structural analysis and design of reinforced concrete.
