Module overview

This module covers advanced aspects of structural engineering including: the design of box-girders for long-span bridges; steel-concrete composite beams and girders for bridges and buildings; prestressed concrete for bridges and buildings; the design of reinforced concrete subject to stress concentrations and the control of cracking in reinforced concrete. You will be taught the theory of design from first principles but in the context of the Eurocodes and an emphasis is placed on your learning approximate methods of design that can be used to compliment and check the output from Finite Element Analysis.
