Structural Design 1


Course code CIV2503

Structural design is concerned with buildings and other structures such as bridges.  A structural design engineer is required to make decisions about how buildings and other structures will be built so that they will perform satisfactorily and will not deteriorate rapidly, deflect excessively or, in the worst event, fall down.  This course concentrates on estimating the loads which a structure may be required to carry, designing individual members in steel and timber and designing steel connections.
