UG Coursework Unit
Faculty & College
To be successful in this unit students require a sound knowledge of applied mechanics and mechanics of materials. This knowledge is achieved by completing the pre-requisite unit or equivalent training.
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
demonstrate an understanding of complex structural behaviour including the effects of stiffness/flexibility, determinacy and indeterminacy
apply approximate analysis methods to develop order of magnitude estimations of structural actions
analyse complex structures by hand using established engineering analysis methods such as compatibility and equilibrium methods
analyse complex structures using computer modelling techniques.
