Module overview

This module covers the advanced design of reinforced concrete structures, prestressed concrete structures, steel-concrete composite structures and timber structures. For each of these structural typologies, the fundamental principles of structural behaviour and design requirements in the context of the Eurocode design codes are covered. Both the serviceability limit state and ultimate limit state design requirements are taught and practiced. The module provides an overview of the latest design approaches for decarbonising structures, including the assessment of the relative upfront embodied carbon impacts of the design.
