Description

Structural damage and deterioration forensics. Seismic assessment procedures. Strengthening and structural retrofit design strategies and practice. Case studies of damaged and undamaged residential, commercial and industrial buildings.

This course applies structural engineering principles and design methods to the assessment and
retrofit of existing structures, covering structural and material inspections, assessment of material
and structural properties, identification of structural vulnerabilities, assessment of structural
robustness including seismic assessment, and the design and supervision of structural alterations
and strengthening works. Learning includes the use of case studies of damaged and undamaged
buildings and a design project.

Learning Outcomes

A student who successfully completes this course should be able to apply advanced structural
engineering principles and design methods to the professional practice of:

 Undertaking surveys to determine site and existing building conditions, based on the
information needs of a design and/or structural assessment process.
 Identifying potential issues with neighbouring structures, site contamination and runoff,
and the mitigation of potential damage.
 Identifying failure mechanisms.
 Performing seismic assessments and understand differences between ISA and DSA
following NZSEE guidelines.
 Assessing the appropriateness of proposed retrofit strategies and materials for structures
including durability performance.
 Integrating structural systems and elements with other building performance requirements,
including access and fire.
 Preparing material, workmanship, quality control and maintenance specifications and
schedules for structural systems and materials.
