Design of a real building by using Eurocodes

On 8-9 March 2014 Epoka University Civil Engineering Department together with Future Engineers Club
organised a workshop for the civil engineering department students, on the practical implementation of
Eurocodes in the structural design process of a real building. Students from third, fourth year of bachelor and
students from master classes participated in this event.

This workshop was organized in the framework of the memorandum of understanding
between Universal construction company and Epoka University. The seminars and trainnings were refered
from the representative of the above mentioned company  MSc. Endri Zhuleku a very experienced and
skillful enginner in different disciplines of civil engineering.

This workshop aimed to provide our civil engineering students an overall information regarding the design
of ordinary reinforced concrete buildings. On behalf of this trainning Eurocodes were treated as contemporary
technical design conditions, which are being rapidly implemented in Albania . In this contect the design of an existing
3 floors reinforced concrete building was modeled step by step in Sap2000 v16 and detailed with  AutoCAD 2015.

It was a very beneficial activity for the students, who were also supplied with the lecture notes prepared by Mr.Zhuleku
and a Certificate of Participation.
