This final year design Course represents the end point of many other courses including Engineering Statics, Stress Analysis, Structural Design I, Concrete Structures and Structural Analysis. The course applies the knowledge and skills developed in those earlier courses to the design of standard structural systems in an integrated approach. The course introduces complex loading evaluation and development of conceptual designs, influence lines for structures, methods of solving complex structural problems using Finite Element software, design and detailing of reinforced concrete structures including non-flexural reinforced concrete members using the strut-and-tie-model approach, analysis and design of steel members under combined loading actions and steel connections. This course also introduces advanced topics of structural dynamics.
