Unit Code: CEB617

Unit Name: Structural Design 1

Description: When engineers analyse a structure either steel or timber, it is required to have known about the analytical behaviour of structural elements under various action of loads in order to carry out the design. This course will help you to understand the behaviour, concepts, principles, various loading actions and their effects while analysing a statically determinate and indeterminate structures. It is a challenge for the Engineer to analyse complex structures like multi-story building, Bridges, flyovers on roads, towers etc. In the group design project you will conduct the structural design of a low-rise steel and timber structure according to the requirements of relevant codes of Australian Standards. This process will include the determination of loads (including dead, imposed and wind loads), determination of load combinations and their design actions and subsequently the design of typical and/or critical members.
