Syllabus Outline

Contact
Hours/Scheduled
Hours

Use of timber as a structural material.


Design of timber members subject to tension, compression and bending.
Design of nailed and bolted timber connections.
Use of Masonry as a structural material.
Design of loadbearing masonry for vertical, lateral and inplane loads.
Design of infill panels.
Pre-stressed concrete structures: Basic principles and methods of prestressing; Materials for pre-stressing; pre-stress loss; Design of flexural
members for serviceability and ultimate limit states.
Water retaining concrete structures: Introduction to code of practice; Basis of
design and materials, Design aspects of reinforced concrete water retaining
structures calculation of crack widths due to external loads, calculation of
crack widths in relation to thermal and moisture effects, Joints in water
retaining structures, Design examples.

Student time will be allocated as follows:


Lectures: 60hours
Tutorials: 12hours
Summative assessment: 33hours
Self directed learning: 95hours
Total student hours: 200 hours

Teaching and
Learning Methods

The module will be delivered by means of a series of lectures and tutorials.

Reading Strategy

The BS EN 1992-1-1, BS 1992-3, BS EN 1995-1-1, EN 1996-1-1 will be used for the


basis of design and detailed analysis of pre-stressed concrete elements and waterretaining structures respectively. Students will also be expected to locate and read
relevant articles published in The Structural Engineers, Proceedings of the Institution
of Civil Engineers and other peer reviewed journals.
