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.

University Graduate Attributes

This course will provide students with an opportunity to develop the Graduate Attributes specified below:

Critically competent in a core academic discipline of their award

Students know and can critically evaluate and, where applicable, apply this knowledge to topics/issues within their majoring subject.

Employable, innovative and enterprising

Students will develop key skills and attributes sought by employers that can be used in a range of applications.

Assessment

Assessment Due Date Percentage 
Assignments 20%
final exam - RC 25%
In-Lecture Quizzes 5%
Test Steel 25%
Test 1 Timber 25%


The assessment will consist of three tests (one per module), a series of assignments, and six random quizzes.

Tests 1 and 2 will occur at the ends of the corresponding modules (Timber and Steel). The last test will occur during the end-of-semester exam period and cover Module 3 (RC).

There will be six in-lecture quizzes. Students are required to take at least five quizzes, with no penalty applied for missing the remaining (sixth) quiz.

Assessments are to be completed on time. Otherwise, they will receive no grade except under documented exonerating circumstances (according to departmental policies).
