Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & teaching methods including their alignment to LOs
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.

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.

Assessment (formative and summative)
Assessment is carried out through the end of module examination (LOs 1 -6) and a single coursework (LOs 1,2 and 3). During tutorial sessions students undertake a series of graded examples designed to develop a sound understanding of the principles and these are used to gauge progress. Assistance and feedback on performance are integral to this process.

Research/ teaching linkages
Staff undertake scholarly and research activities on structural analysis and design subjects.
Relevant research findings are delivered within the module.

Supporting equality and diversity
All materials are available on WebCT to cater for the diverse student group.
Academic supervision and tutorial support are available each taught week of the module to support students.

Internationalisation
The content of the module provides all international students with an understanding of UK practice through the use of the UK National Annexes and general European practice through the use of Eurocodes in general.
International students are encouraged to discuss practices adopted in their home nation.

Formative Assessment:
The University is currently undertaking work to improve the quality of information provided on methods of assessment and feedback. Please refer to the section on Learning and Teaching Approaches above for further information about this module’s learning, teaching and assessment practices, including formative and summative approaches.

Summative Assessment:
The University is currently undertaking work to improve the quality of information provided on methods of assessment and feedback. Please refer to the section on Learning and Teaching Approaches above for further information about this module’s learning, teaching and assessment practices, including formative and summative approaches.

Description of module content:

Structural Analysis:
Plastic Analysis: static and kinematic methods of analysis.
Yield Line and Hillerborg Methods: failure of slab structures.
Vibrations: natural vibrations of single and multi-degree-of-freedom systems.



Learning Outcomes for module:

On completion of this module you will be able to:
LO1. determine plastic section properties;
LO2. analyse continuous beams using static and kinematic methods;
LO3. analyse singly redundant frames using static and kinematic methods;
LO4. analyse multi-redundant frames using the kinematic method;
LO5. analyse failure patterns for irregular shaped slabs and irregular loading patterns;
LO6. determine natural frequencies induced by forced vibrations due to ground motion/variable applied forces.
