SEEM 504 Structural Engineering Design
Department: MSc Structural Engineering
Module Description: This module will develop the students’ competences in structural design to an advanced level. It will cover the aspects of structural design including concepts, structural forms, sustainability, and detailed design. It will cover the topics including combined effects of axial force and bending, slender columns, and two-way slab systems in concrete; design of steel members for axial, flexure and torsion, as well as design of different types of connections. The students will also gain knowledge about the various available materials such as high performance concrete and steel, and the effects of the hot weather in the Gulf region on the properties of these materials.
