A practical course that involves both advanced analysis and design of an engineered structure to solve a given problem. The course deals with behaviour of fundamental aspects of structural design, including advanced modelling. Students will work in groups to solve a specific problem; they will design and build their structure and then will then test it to destruction in the Heavy Structures and Materials Laboratories. Problems will be selected from concrete, steel, timber or other structural materials. The course is designed to enhance student capabilities in researching of design concepts, in further developing their problem solving skills and in determining design solutions to a client's problem.
