Connections are required to transfer loads between structural members and are hence a critical part of steel structures. Their detailing needs to be consistent with the design assumptions since their structural behaviour significantly affects the overall response of the overall structure. This course will cover the design of lap joints using bearing and preloaded bolts as well as the design of nominally pinned beam-to-column steel connections according to EN 1993-1-8 focusing on connection types commonly used in buildings.

Over 4 hours, the webinar will explore the following topics:

1. Introduction and connection components
2. Behaviour and classification
3. Bolted and welded lap joints
4. Connections with preloaded bolts
5. Nominally pinned beam-to-column connections


Dr Marios Theofanous is an Associate Professor in Structural Engineering at the University of Birmingham. He has published over 100 papers on high performance steel and aluminium members and connections and the development of design guidance. He has received funding of over £ 2M as PI/Co-I in several research projects funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, UKIERI and Network Rail and has supervised 9 PhD students to completion. He is currently leading a research group of 4 PhD students and 2 postdoctoral researchers and is PI/Co-I in two projects on resilient buildings using stainless steel and reuse of carbon steel in construction. His research findings on the slenderness limits and effective width equations of stainless steel sections have been incorporated in Eurocode 3: Part 1.4, 2015 and AISC Design Guide 27. He is member of the editorial panel of the IStructE research journal “Structures” and of the BSI Sub-Committee B/525/9 “Structural Use of Aluminium”. He is a member of the EPSRC Peer Review College, of the UKRI Talent Peer Review College, and a frequent reviewer of the Research Grants Council of Hong Kong.
