NEC2201 - Introduction to Structural Engineering Design
|1.||Analyse and design reinforced concrete beams in both strength and serviceability states (for bending, shear, torsion, deflection and crack control);|
|2.||Analyse and design reinforced concrete one-way and two-way slabs (including flat plates);|
|3.||Analyse and design members in combined compression and bending (i.e. columns and walls);|
|4.||Demonstrate an in-depth understanding of relevant Australian codes of practice in the design of concrete structures;|
|5.||Exercise critical thinking and judgement in formulating and solving specific concrete design problems; and|
|6.||Work both autonomously in solving problems and collaborate as a member of a team in undertaking design tasks.|
|Test||Mid-block test (1.5 hours equivalent to 1000 words)||30%|
|Project||PBL design project||40%|
