Aims and objectives

This unit aims to provide students with practical skills which are necessary for the structural design of buildings, and to put these skills into practice by working on industry engaged projects.
 
Unit Learning Outcomes (ULO)
On successful completion of this unit students will be able to: 
 
1. Identify the critical issues that should be addressed in planning and designing a multi-storey building (K1, K2, K3, K5, K6, S1, S2, S3, A1, A5, A6) 
2. Undertake conceptual design for buildings covering floor layout and identify suitable lateral load resisting systems (K1, K2, K3, K5, K6, S1, S2, S3, A1, A5, A6) 
3. Calculate wind loads on buildings focusing on external facades and execute design of glazing elements (K1, K2, K3, K5, K6, S1, S2, S3, A1, A5, A6) 
4. Carry out design of composite concrete floors (K1, K2, K3, K5, K6, S1, S2, S3, A1, A5, A6) 
5. Identify factors affecting seismic design of building structures and calculate seismic loads (K1, K2, K3, K5, K6, S1, S2, S3, A1, A5, A6) 
6. Apply their knowledge of building design to projects involving multi-storey buildings (K3, K4, K5, K6, S1, S3, S4, A1, A2, A4, A6, A7)
