The module is designed to complement the theoretical knowledge developed in previous concrete design modules. It aims to consolidate students’ understanding of concrete structures design and provide them with a basis for designing concrete composite structures. The course also provides students with design and modelling techniques used for practical applications.
A Review and complement analysis techniques of concrete structures.
B Develop design schemes according to industry practices.
C Apply theories relevant to composite slab and beam designs according to EC4.
D Analyze and design steel-concrete composite slabs and beams.
The teaching is a mixture of lectures and labs sessions. The assessment is a coursework based on a composite design incorporating practical details. Formative assessment will be included during the course of the delivery period.
