Engineering Design Consultants

Structural Design

Eadon Consulting's expertise includes designing both simple and complex structures that are either fixed or integrated with moving elements, such as moving bridges, buildings and access gantries.

Our experience across a number of different sectors enables us to consider each design's requirements individually. After initially analysing the design from first principles, suitable load cases for the structure are developed that reflect its true operation. Following this it is then possible to select the most suitable design code on which the analysis will be based. We are able to design structures to several of the Eurocodes, which replaced their British Standard equivalents in 2010.

These include:

  • Eurocode 3 Design of Steel Structures
  • Eurocode 5 Design of Timber Structures
  • Eurocode 9 Design of Aluminium Structures
  • As well as legacy standards such as BS5950.

When designing moving structures, it is important to understand the interaction of the structure and the dynamic forces involved as well as any potential effects due to fatigue or resonance. We analyse actual loads and forces exerted within the structure to ensure that it is capable of withstanding these conditions.

Our experience across different sectors, with different types of moving structures and dynamic forces, enables us to understand the true interaction of the structure with its environment. This ensures that a safe and efficient design is produced that takes all of these factors into account.
