Sign structures and passive safety training

Supports, foundations and passive safety

Do you know your EN 12899 from your EN 12767? With the introduction of the new versions of these standards, and passive safety now being relevant to all roads, many designers of traffic signs would welcome more guidance on the structural aspects.

In this one-day course for non-specialists, Simon Morgan will cover the basic theory of sign support and foundation design and how to apply the new standards in practice. It is not specific to any one software package, but participants will be given a free copy of SignLoad Designer to take away. Foundation design both to Highways England standard BD 94/07 and Eurocode 7 will be explained, as will factors affecting choice of substrate and spacing of channel sections.

Participants will undertake simple worked examples, to enable them to understand the theory and use of reference materials, and therefore correctly use computer software for actual design work. 

Simon is a chartered civil engineer who specialised in structural engineering before embarking upon a career in traffic engineering and computing.  He is a member of the BSI committees for traffic sign and passive safety standards and edited the IHE Sign Structures Guide.
