Description

Loads and load paths in buildings and bridges. Design calculations for timber and steel structures. Engineering drawing. Construction and testing of simple structures.

The bridge design project involves:

1. Aesthetics, Art Innovative structural form design considering and historical context constraints
2. Choosing the optimal structural form of the bridge, i.e. minimize material waste
3. Understand impact of loading on bridges and calculation methods such as influence lines
4. Building and testing small scale models to understand the overall global stability and performance
5. Understanding the materials to be used and engineering connections
6. Full detailed design including connections and supports
7. Development of professional structural drawings
8. Bridge construction and management
9. Use of rendering software and Augmented Reality
10. Bridge testing and validation of detail design

The building design project involves:

1. Understanding load paths in a building structure under gravity loads and horizontal loads
2. Estimating the loads on building structures based on NZ load standards
3. Get familiar with ultimate limit state (ULS) design & serviceability limit state (SLS) design
4. Calculating strength demand
5. Designing beams, columns, walls and bracing systems
6. Engineering drawings of buildings

The bridge design project will be done in groups of 6 students, while the building design project is an individual assignment. Both the bridge and the building are to be designed using timber or wood-based products as the main structural material.

Learning Outcomes

This course consists of two design projects; a simple building and a bridge. The aim of the project is to familiarise the students with the overall design process including construction and testing.

Pre-requisites

Subject to approval of the Dean of Engineering and Forestry
