Good day to all IEM (Southern Branch) members,

Referring to the subject above, kindly find enclosed the flyer on the upcoming event the 2-Day Course on "Design of Steel Structure Using Eurocode 3". This course will be organized by Young Engineers Section of IEM (Southern Branch), which will be held on 27th & 28th January 2018 at IEM (Southern Branch) Training Centre, Johor Bahru. We are pleased to invite all members to participate in this course. Details listed as follows:

Date : 27th January 2018 (Saturday) & 28th January 2018
Time : 9.00 a.m to 5.30 p.m
Speaker: Assoc. Prof. Dr. Fatimah De’nan, Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM)
Supported by : IEM (Southern Branch)

"Design of Steel Structure using Eurocode 3" is aimed at civil and structural engineers seeking an understanding of the general rules, main features and changes contained in Eurocode 3. Although EC3 is similar to BS5950, EC 3 is more comprehensive and better developed as compared with BS5950. Thus, the main part of the course will focus on the contents of EC3 and design basis for flexural member, compression member, tension member, and connection. Design steps for basic structural elements such as beam, trusses, and column will be discussed.
At the end of the course, participants would be able to:
· Describe the contents and structure of EC 3.
· Identify the design basis and design criteria of EC 3.
· Perform basic calculations for ultimate limit state and serviceability limit state based on EC 3.
· How to design steel structures to EC 3 with confidence


Assoc. Prof. Dr. Fatimah graduated with a Diploma in Civil Engineering (UTM), B.Tech & Edu. (Civil Eng) (UTM), MSc (Structural Engineering) (USM) and PhD (UTM). Currently she is a Lecturer at the School of Civil Engineering, USM since 2008. Before joining with USM, she worked for consultant firm and had significant exposure to several field and design works. While being at the USM, she continues providing consultancy services especially in steel structures design and testing to the industries. Her main research interests are Steel Structure, Concrete Structure, Structural Analysis, Design and Testing, Finite Element Analysis, Non Uniform Steel Section Behaviour and Thin Structure. Since 2011, she was appointed as a member of an academic panel (Engineering Division) for the Matriculation Programme, Ministry of Education, Malaysia.
Dr Fatimah actively involves in professional organizations such as Education Committee Member of Malaysian Structural Steel Association (MSSA), Member of Concrete Society of Malaysia (CSM), and Committee Member of Experimental Society of Malaysia. She received 4 International awards for her research products in 2011, 2012 and 2016. In National level, she had received 9 awards since 2012 until present for Open Ideas Steel competition by Malaysian structural Steel Association (MSSA). She also has a copyright for her steel product, and several copyright ready to publish.
