Module overview

You will learn how to apply the theoretical principles of structural mechanics learnt during your first year to the design of real life structures. You will learn the fundamental aspects of steelwork design with an emphasis on buckling. The design of reinforced concrete beams will be covered, as well as the design of timber and masonry structures. The selection of appropriate materials is vital skill for practicing civil/structural engineers and you will learn the underlying science behind the structural performance and durability of the main materials used in the built environment. This will include an emphasis on steel metallurgy and welding.
