Summary

 

Design of Steel Buildings - CIVE97105

Aims

  • To teach the fundamentals of the conceptual design of a range of structural framing systems used in the construction sector. This is achieved through issues related to structural form and behaviour, analysis, practical considerations in steel fabrication and codification using EC3.
  • To integrate some of the structural analysis studied previously such that it can be used to provide approximate and quick design methods for guidance on initial sizing.

Role

Course Leader

Structural Dynamics - CIVE97097

Aims

  • To provide students with a general grounding in the basic concepts and principles of dynamics as applied to structural engineering problems.
  • To introduce the students to the most common dynamic phenomena in structural engineering and train them in the application of appropriate idealization approaches, their analytical formulation and their mathematical solution.
