Course description

Advanced Structural Engineering

This course provides you with an understanding of the fundamental principles of structural elements design according to Eurocodes.

It covers advanced aspects of the design of box beams for long-span bridges, steel-concrete composite beams and structural elements for bridges and buildings.

This course will include:

  • how to calculate stresses and determine tendon forces
  • how to calculate the permissible depth of the cable zone and steel areas
  • how to check the adequacy of the reinforcement arrangement
  • how to estimate pre-stress losses due to friction, elastic shortening, shrinkage and creep
  • box, I, T and U beams and hollow-core units.
  • the principles and requirements for safety, serviceability and design of composite steel and concrete structures, steel decking and composite slab design
  • composite beams design.
  • the design of concrete structural elements (and how, in general, it is not affected by fire design requirements
  • the governing factor in element sizing, mainly in multi-storey buildings
  • guidance given in Eurocodes on the sizing of structural elements for different fire resistance periods.
  • the control and prediction of movements/dimensional variations in structures
  • the calculation of dimensional variations
  • the calculation of crack widths
  • case studies.

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to:

  • understand the best practice requirements for fire resistance design of structures
  • review case studies where movements caused severe cracking or failure
  • understand the use of new concepts, construction techniques and materials.

Teaching and learning will take place using a flexible programme of lectures, workshops, seminars and tutorials.
