The aim of this module is to provide the student with the ability to investigate and solve structural problems related to the build environment.
The aim of this Module is to provide the student with :an advanced ability to analyse and design structures in steel and to analyse structural systems under dynamic loading.
By the end of this module the student should be able to:
1. To design and analyse structural elements and systems, to understand the underlying scientific principles
2. To understand and use the appropriate codes of practise and industry standards and to analyse technical literature and other information sources and critically evaluate the outcome
3. To understand and critically evaluate the characteristics of the materials used in analysis
4. To analyse complex systems out with the static slastic linear boundaries.
