Description

This course covers the behaviour and design of structural systems, considering the main structural materials currently used in New Zealand - timber, steel and reinforced concrete structures. The course builds on the basics of member design techniques for steel, reinforced concrete and timber structures, introduced in previous courses, to provide students with the skills and knowledge required for the design of typical structural systems.

This course covers the behaviour and design of structural systems, considering the main structural materials currently used in New Zealand – timber, steel and reinforced concrete (RC). The course builds on the basics of member design techniques for timber, steel, reinforced concrete (RC) structures, introduced in previous courses, to provide students with the skills and knowledge required for the design of typical structural systems for safety, efficiency and reliability.

This course includes three learning modules, each of around one third of the course, that cover the following topics:

Module 1: Behaviour and design of timber structures
Module 2: Behaviour and design of steel structures
Module 3: Behaviour and design of reinforced concrete (RC) structures

Learning Outcomes

Students completing this course will be able to:

1. Design standard timber, steel and reinforced concrete structures for gravity loads and lateral loads.
2. Demonstrate knowledge of the non-linear behaviour of timber, steel and reinforced concrete structures subject to lateral loading.
3. Evaluate and identify best practice detailing for typical timber, concrete and steel structural elements and connections for the resistance of gravity and seismic actions.  
4. Describe and critically evaluate the characteristics of typical building materials, including effects of moisture, durability, and long-term loading.
5. Design composite structural members to effectively resist gravity loading.

Assessment

Assessment Due Date Percentage 
Assignments 20%
final exam 40%
Test 40%


The test will occur at the end of Term 1 and will cover the first course module and half the second course module. The final exam will occur during the end-of-semester exam period. The final exam will cover all module 2 (concentrating on the second half) and the third module, as these are covered in Term 2.
