Description

This module requires the learner to identify and formulate design concepts and evaluate traditional and sustainable construction options for the refurbishment of existing buildings and/or the design of new buildings.

This module is a direct continuation of the learning accomplished in the module Structural Design 401H.

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;

1.

Analyse and design structural steelwork structures.

2.

Analyse and design composite structural steelwork structures.

3.

Analyse and design reinforced concrete and prestressed concrete structures.

4.

Select an approrpiate scheme design for planning, organising and implementing a detailed design solution as part of a design team.

5.

Plan, organise and prepare appropriate detailed general arrangement, reinforced concrete and structural steelwork drawings as part of a design team.

Teaching and Learning Strategies

This module will be delivered to full-time learners through a mix of formal lectures and design practical classes. 

This module will be delivered to part-time online learners through a mix of live online lectures and online tutorials. The lectures and tutorials will be recorded and made available to the learners through an online virtual learning environment.

To reinforce the theoretical principles covered in lectures, learners will participate in design practicals and project work.

Module Assessment Strategies

This module is 100% continuous assessment as it is a practical subject.

The continuous assessment is based on group project work and calculations, sketches, reports, drawings, presentations and interviews that will be assessed on an ongoing basis to provide both formative and summative assessment to the learner.

The project work is interdisciplinary and linked with Geotechnical Engineering 402H.

Both individual and team performance will be assessed at different stages during this project work with an emphasis on teamwork.

Peer assessment will be incorporated into marks awarded for all practical work. The sizing of the slice method of group assessment (Clelford & Hopkins, 2014) will be used to allocate marks to the individual members of the project group. A copy of this method of allocating marks will be given to the students at the start of the module.

Repeat Assessments

The learner must pass all elements of the continuous assessment.

Where a learner or group of learners fail the project element of the module they will be required to resubmit the project or an alternative project for assessment or a repeat exam paper at the repeat examination session.
