Unit Code: CEB711

Unit Name: Structural Design II

Description: Engineers are expected to design various types of foundations for buildings and other infrastructures such as bridges, jetties, retaining walls etc. Engineers must be able to design the foundations by utilising their knowledge relevant to geotechnical engineering, reinforced concrete design principles and various adverse loading considerations. This course will enable you to understand the principles of foundation design, design of various footings such as isolated, strip, combined and also design of raft, pile foundations and design of surface structures. Also you will learn the design of cantilever and counter fort retaining wall. At the end of the course you will be able to design the pavements, foundations and reinforced concrete detailing manually and also using appropriate foundation design software.
