PHILOSOPHY:
The objectives of the course are to:
Introduce structural design and loading in particular relation to timber design
Review and extend structural analysis for determinate and indeterminate structures
(moment area deflection and moment distribution method)
Show how loads are collated and tracked through a structure to the foundation.
Provide an overview of timber structural forms.
Introduce structural design standards (Design Actions & Timber).
Understand and apply design concepts involved in structural timber design.
Introduce LVL, plywood and nailed moment connections in portal frames

ASSESSMENT:
For Structures & Design 2, 30 marks are allocated to the course work (test and assignments) and
70 to the exam, but the final mark for the course is taken as the smaller of the sum of the course
work and exam marks or 2 times the exam mark. This means a student must obtain a minimum
of 36 out of 100 in the final exam to pass.
e.g. exam 60/100 = 42/70 , coursework 30/30, total 72% < (2x 42 rule max = 84%); Final 72%
exam 50/100 = 35/70 , coursework 30/30, total 65% < (2x 35 rule max = 70%); Final 65%
exam 40/100 = 28/70 , coursework 30/30, total 58% > (2x 28 rule max = 56%); Final 56%
exam 36/100 = 25.2/70 , coursework 30/30, total 55.2% > (2x 25.2 rule max = 50.4%); Final 50.4%
Revision for the examination helps tie the different parts of the paper together, and hence is seen
as an essential part of the learning programme. The exam is a 3-hour restricted book
examination, where the students standards of practice can be taken into the exam room
(standards may have minor annotations as detailed during the course).
Students are encouraged to work in groups in the tutorial periods to discuss the way they plan to
do the assignment and undertake preliminary calculations. Provided all students participate this
is a very efficient way of learning about design. However, the final calculations are to be the
individual effort of each student in that after such consultation, or joint effort, each student is to
individually work through the assignment from scratch with a fresh set of his or her own
calculations.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:
Students who complete this course should be capable of analysing simple indeterminate
structures and be able to make detailed design calculations for timber structures.
