Modelling training school

From the 28th to the 30th April, The Centre will be hosting a training school in modelling of timber structures for COST Action FP1004.

The course will cover:

  • Finite element modelling (FEM) of moisture stresses and deformations
  • Modelling of 2D and 3D timber truss systems
  • The dynamic and static modelling of timber and timber concrete floors using FEM
  • Probabilistic assessment of timber properties via non-destructive measurement

and the trainers are

  • Sigurdur Ormarsson (formally Technical University of Denmark now Linnaeus University in Sweden)
  • Kay-Uwe Schober (Mainz University of Applied Sciences)
  • Alfredo Dias (University of Coimbra)
  • Dan Ridley-Ellis (Edinburgh Napier University) (local host)

Trainees are early stage researchers representing 17 different countries. ¬†For more information, visit the training school’s blog site.
