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 behavior 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.

Learning ActivitiesThe fundamental ideas and their application to behavior modelling are introduced in lectures. Reinforcement and further exploration of these occurs in tutorials with practice problems. Assessment is in the final exam.Design requirements are taught in lectures and reinforced in tutorial and laboratory classes. Reinforcement of this teaching is through practice problems, competency in solving these is demonstrated through assignments and exam questions.Students are required to attend and perform laboratory work and demonstrate competency in report writing and solving practice problems.Methodologies introduced in the lectures are practiced in the workshops. Students are required to demonstrate competency in solving practice problems and exam questions.Methodologies introduced in the lectures are practiced in the workshop.Students are required to attend and perform laboratory work and demonstrate competency in report writing and solving practice problems.

Intended Learning Outcomes

01. Apply the limit state design method in structural design.
02. Calculate structural load combinations
03. Analyse the behavior of structures under load combinations.
04. Apply mechanics of solids principles to design structural members.
05. Conduct bending test in the laboratory on a scaled steel and timber beams, observe their behavior under load, compare measured data with the predictions of Australian Standards AS4100 and AS1720 and published research, and critically review the findings.
