This unit gives an overview of construction materials, their use and management in civil engineering applications. The course focuses on the earthmoving materials, estimating earthwork volume, excavating and lifting equipment and compaction equipment. The lecture provides an explanation of the foundation work, concrete formwork system and concrete and steel construction work. It also covers construction management topics such as planning and scheduling, construction economics and contract construction, construction safety and health and equipment maintenance.
This unit provides students with the role played by structure in the design and building process. The main aim is to give basic principles of structural analysis and structural design which introduce the limit state approach to the design of simple elements under tension, compression and bending together with an overview of the types of loading acting on structures and their idealization for design purpose. This subject provides the student with a clear and thorough presentation of the theory and application of structural analysis as it applies to trusses, beams, and frames.
The students study a discussion of the various types of structural forms and loads, the determination of forces at the supports and connections of statically determinate beams and frames. The analysis of various types of statically determinate trusses and shear and bending-moment functions and diagrams for beams and frames, the analysis of simple cable and arch systems, influence lines for beams, girders, and trusses and several common techniques for the approximate analysis of statically indeterminate structures.
Structural engineering is a wider discipline under the field of civil engineering. It is a vast topic with unlimited theories and practices. It is a field that is still developing with huge innovations and ideas. When looking into the working time and the place sent by the structural engineers, most of the highly involved structural engineers will be working in the office as well as on the construction sites. The roles and responsibilities of the structural engineer include Structural Designing, Site and work investigations, Communication, Construction Management and Adequate training.
After learning the structural analysis, The students will understand the basis of structural design, load distribution and deflection, examine types of loading acting on structures and their uncertainties, develop collaboration and team-working skills through series of in-class group discussions and calculations and work in groups to relate the real world cases with the theories to be applied.
This module provides the problem solving skills of engineering mathematics. Students will learn the solid knowledge of principles, methods, results and clear view of what engineering mathematics is. It covers Complex Analysis such as Complex Numbers and Functions, Complex Differentiation, Complex Integration, Power Series, Taylor Series, Laurent Series, Residue Integration, Conformal Mapping, Complex Analysis and Potential Theory, and Numerics for ODEs and PDEs in Numeric Analysis. These generalize the familiar real functions of calculus.
The main objective of this course is to provide students with
firm understanding of the design of reinforced concrete members and structures
through a thorough grounding in the basic performance of materials and
structural behaviour under loading, Topics covered in this course will include:
fundamental behavior of reinforced concrete; basis for design code and specification;
flexural analysis and design of beams; shear and diagonal tension in beams;
bond, anchorage, and development length; design of short columns; analysis and
design of slabs; and design of footings and foundations.
Throughout the Lecture that follows, Students
will find information relating to sustainability in the design, construction,
and operation of buildings. Every chapter tells how to build in such a way that
resources are used wisely, energy is conserved, waste products are reduced, and
buildings are made comfortable, durable, and healthy with the minimum possible
cost to the environment. Many of these practices are old and well-known. Some
are new and innovative. In either case, architects and engineers must become
familiar with them and use the more consistently if we are to pass on to our
children and grandchildren a world as lovely, hospitable, healthy, and
resource-rich as the world into which we were born.
The course is designed to increase student's confidence and ability and to enable them to operate at a good intermediate level. The emphasis is on integrating the four skills, increasing fluency through interactive communicative activities and improving accuracy through grammar focus and error analysis. Attention is also paid to vocabulary building and achieving clear intelligible pronunciation.
This module provides students with strong
understanding of Steel Building and Design Criteria, Design Loads, behavior of
Steel Structures under design load and plate girders. It can provide the
behavior and design of structural steel components such as members and
connections in 2D truss and frame structures and simple steel structures. It
covers estimating design forces for members of a structure, designing beams for
lateral torsional buckling, designing compression member or columns, designing
tension members, designing bolted connections and designing welded connections.
Landscaping is the creating of planning the drives, walkways, lawns, shrubs, gardens.etc.so as to emergence the good environment.This Unit gives the principles of how to create the landscaping design that are concerning about the ecology system. It covers site analysis, site design, drainage, their interactions with natural systems; reliance ecology as the foundation for landscape design; the need to involve multiple disciplines in solving complex problems and the idea of functionality for the users.The Main purpose of landscaping is to create a joyful environment round the building and give the occupants a healthy breath, good appearance and natural beauty.
