Structural Fire Engineering - CIVE97115
- To introduce the students to the fundamental concepts and principles of structural fire safety engineering
Theory of Shells - CIVE97113
- To introduce the students to the fundamental concepts and principles of the analysis and design of thin-walled shelled structures.
- The module begins with an introduction to membrane theory for common shapes of axisymmetric structural shells, followed by an overview of axisymmetric bending theory for cylindrical shells and an introduction to the phenomenon of shell buckling.
- The module introduces the students to the analysis of shells using commercial finite element software including linear elastic, linear plastic, nonlinear elastic and linear buckling analyses. An introduction to the design of shells using EN 1993-1-6 is also given.
Computational Methods I - CIVE40004
In this module you will be introduced to the basic concepts in computer programming and numerical analysis, with emphasis on the importance of these topics within the discipline of civil engineering.
