|OBJECTIVES:||The objectives of this course are to:
1. Understand the basic and different structural elements.
2. Understand structural concept and entity to architecture.
3. Analyze the forces, its characteristics and basic principles in relation to structures.
4. Apply the loading concept; material behaviour; basic elements of stress and its components.
5. Analyze the statistically indeterminate structural members of a building.
6. Comprehend the design methodology of both concrete and steel structures such as suspension structures, domes, tents, portal and space frames.
7. Apply usage of appropriate construction materials in tall and long span structure system.
|Upon completion of the course, the students should be able to:
|TEACHING-LEARNING AND ASSESSMENT STRATEGY:||Teaching-learning strategy:
|Part One (1) of the course integrates architectural expression of structure to the mathematical calculation of fundamental structure. The architectural expression provides the linkage of structures to architecture in the language familiar to design process. The mathematical session of the course focus on the fundamental of structural analysis including the characteristics and performance of various components of structures, the terminology and notation necessary for effective teamwork with structural engineering consultants, and basic design calculations for simple structures. In architectural perspective, Part Two (2) will provide an overview of the different structural systems, which may be considered for the architecture appropriate for the function including an intuitive application of the principles of mechanics; the relationship of form and structural resistance; typical applications in steel, reinforced concrete and composite systems; and long spans, tall buildings and space structure principles. Advanced structural systems for buildings include the theory and basic analysis of foundations, structural connections and composite structures, system characteristics and architectural intent; and case studies in contemporary building structures.|
