STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS AND DESIGN 2

CIV3SD2

2017

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

This aim of this Subject is to introduce the principles of the basic analysis of skeletal structures and basic structural design principles and methods with particular application to reinforced concrete. The analysis section focuses on commonly used analysis methods such as flexibility method, stiffness method, slope-deflection method, moment distribution method and influence line method.

This Subject also introduces the principles of the basic structural design principles and methods with particular emphasis on reinforced concrete. The design component contains a revision of concrete technology,bending, shear and deflection equations and methods for reinforced concrete,application to beams (rectangular, T and L beams), application to slabs (one and two way slabs, including flat slabs), the anchorage of reinforcement and member detailing and concrete column design.

Engineers Australia stage 1 competencies covered in this subject are: 1.3, 2.2, 2.3 and 3.2 (see intended learning outcomes for details).
