STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS AND DESIGN 2

CIV3SD2

2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

The aim of this Subject is to introduce the students with the current philosophy for the design of structures against loads required to resist. This is followed by presenting the behaviour and detailed design of structural elements constructed from steel and timber materials to resist major actions. The design strategies presented cover action cases including bending, shear, tension and compression in addition to deflection checks for selected structural members and materials. Comprehensive structural design tasks for the covered materials and actions will equip the students with the fundamental understandings of sizing and specifying framing members for structures. 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).
