|Subject Overview:||This subject integrates structural theory and design. Topics covered include theory behind brittle fracture and fatigue of steel structure; design of steel connections; idealised frame method of slab design; flat plates and slabs; punching shear; partially pre-stressed beams and slabs; procedures and processes involved in the design of steel and concrete structures. Two group design projects will allow students to practice their design skills.|
At the completion of this subject students should be able to:
|Assessment:||One group assignment (2,000 words per student equivalent) in the first half of semester (30%), and one group assignment (1,000 words per student equivalent) in the second half of semester (15%), one lab assignment (5%), one 3-hour exam (end of semester, 50%). Passing of the exam is a hurdle requirement of the subject. Team cooperation and contributions will be taken into account in awarding individual marks for team outcomes.|
