Summary

 

Computational Engineering Analysis - CIVE96003

Aims

  • To expose principal computational methods in civil engineering.
  • To illustrate the main application areas for each of these methods.
  • To engage in computer modelling of real engineering problems.
  • To assess the accuracy of computer-based solutions.

Role

Course Leader

Seismic Design of Concrete Structures - CIVE97100

Aims

  • To introduce the students to the fundamental concepts and principles required for the seismic design of reinforced concrete and masonry structures. 
  • To enable the students to develop an understanding of the seismic behaviour of concrete and masonry materials, components and systems under typical earthquake loading conditions. 
  • This knowledge can then be applied in practical earthquake resistant design of frame and wall systems according to modern codified regulations, with particular emphasis on the European seismic design code, Eurocode 8.

Role

Lecturer

Masonry, Timber and Glass - CIVE97149

Role

Lecturer

Structural Stability - CIVE97104

Aims

  • To give students a rigorous grounding in the behaviour of structural components and systems that suffer from failure due to geometric, rather than material, nonlinearity; the principal features being that failure primarily occurs in the elastic range and due to buckling. It is a course based on fundamental mechanics that is designed to give the theoretical background to the more practical design-based modules.

Role

Lecturer

Structural Mechanics - CIVE96004

Aims

  • To build on the work in structural mechanics in years 1 and 2 to cover more advanced material essential to understanding of structural behaviour particularly near the ultimate limit state where structural failure is to be considered and necessarily avoided; issues regarding geometric and material nonlinearities become key.
