Description of module content:

Structural Analysis:
Development of understanding and making effective use of methods covered in previous modules: structural analysis of determinate and indeterminate structures.
Structural Design:
EC0 and EC1: use of Eurocodes for structural design principles and loading,
EC2: use of Eurocode 2 for the design of reinforced and pre-stressed concrete elements, e.g. materials, durability, moment capacity, shear, deflection, T & L beams, non-slender single-storey columns.
EC6: use of Eurocode 6 for the design of masonry structures, e.g. materials, forms, bonds, design for vertical and lateral loading

Learning Outcomes for module:

LO1: Demonstrate knowledge in structural analysis of statically determined and undetermined structures. .
LO2: Implement design principles and loading conditions in accordance with Eurocodes 0 and 1
LO3: Demonstrate knowledge of design principles for structural concrete elements in accordance
with Eurocode 2 and UK National Annexes.
LO4: Demonstrate knowledge of design principles for masonry structures in accordance with
Eurocode 6 and UK National Annexes.

Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Formal lectures and class tutorials are used to deliver content and offer face to face support.
Directed study tasks encourage integration of key reading material (LO1-LO4). Class tutorials are
provided to encourage problem solving as well as to offer additional support. During the module
delivery students will receive feedback on progress through tackling graded questions within the
tutorial sessions. The use of appropriate computer software is encouraged to confirm or otherwise,
the results obtained from hand-calculations.

Embedding of employability/PDP/Scholarship Skills
Module content is developed in consultation with employers. Guest speakers offer the opportunity for networking and development of job search strategy. Communication skills are developed through interactive participation by students in class. In addition the exams, coursework and tutorials are learning activities which provide the students with transferable skills such as team working, time management and reporting skills.
Assessment (formative or summative)
Assessment is carried out using a summative approach with a supervised open book class test relating to the parts of the module introducing the Eurocodes and their design principles as well as masonry design (LO1, LO2, LO4). Another summative approach is used in a closed book, formal examination at the end of the module. This examination relates to the parts of the module covering Reinforced/Prestressed concrete design (LO3)
Research / teaching linkages
Staff undertake scholarly and research activities on structural analysis and design subjects. Relevant research findings are delivered within the module.
