The aim of this course is to extend understanding of (and competence in applying) the principles and practice of limit state design for steel and reinforced concrete structural elements, building on the basic grounding developed in Structural Design 2.
Intended Learning Outcomes of Course
By the end of this course students will be able to:
■ identify and apply appropriate loading to structures and elements of structures;
■ recognise the significant resulting load effects;
■ assess these load effects using the principles of mechanics;
■ select trial sections in a rational fashion and design structural elements in reinforced concrete and structural steel to withstand load;
■ evaluate the success of design solutions and propose alternatives.
Minimum Requirement for Award of Credits
Students must attend the degree examination.
Students should attend at least 75% of the timetabled classes for the course.
Note that these are minimum requirements: good students will achieve far higher participation/submission rates. Any student who misses an assessment or a significant number of classes because of illness or other good cause should report this by completing a MyCampus absence report.
