EGB473 Composite Structures

This advanced level civil engineering unit provides the required knowledge and skills for the analysis, design and construction of multi-storey steel-concrete composite buildings. Building on the structural, material, construction and professional studies units of previous semesters, it provides detailed knowledge, skills and experience in load evaluation, selection of suitable structural framing systems, modelling, analysis and design of multi-storey steel-concrete buildings and their components including composite slabs and beams by engaging in a 12-storey building project on a real site. The ability to analyse and design multi-storey buildings is a requirement for selected graduate civil engineering positions. This unit provides the knowledge and skills required for this purpose. It will prepare you to pursue a career in structures and/or construction.
