CS2003 - Introduction to Structural Design
|Student Contribution Band:
||School of Engineering (pre 2015)
Introduction to structural behaviour and form; the place of analysis in design process
using examples of beams and frames; relationship between bending moment and deflected
shapes; approximate analysis of indeterminate structures; introduction to working
stress and limit state designs; dead loads; live loads; wind loads; an introduction
to the use of design codes; design of steel members (tension, compression and flexural
members) and their connections; design of timber members and their connections; introduction
to civil engineering drawing.
- ability to design some individual structural elements;
- ability to understand design problem identification;
- become familiar with the Australian Codes of Practice in the field of structural engineering;
- have a structural feel and appreciation for the importance of load path, deflected
shape and approximate analysis.
