Advanced Structural Design and Bridge Engineering
Course Title: Advanced Structural Design and Bridge Engineering
Course Code: LJMU-7500-UCEPG
Programme: MSc in Civil Engineering
Appreciate the underlying differences in the behaviour and analysis of bridges and large structures and develop critical understanding of the philosophies of current Codes of Practice and in using appropriate methods for the design of steel, composite, prestressed concrete, tensile cables and bridge elements/deck structures
After completing the module the student should be able to:
1 Critically evaluate the use of common structural materials in large structures.
2 Evaluate a range of structural theories and methods of analysis and their relevance to large structures according to current codes of practice.
3 Perform advanced structural analysis and design of steel, composite, prestressed concrete, tensile cables, bridge deck structures/elements, and apply knowledge to the design in varying environments.
Typical Module duration: 8.0 Week(s)
