Annotation Subject "Structural Reinforcement" gives a real insight into the existing structure renovation, improvement or capacity building. Is addressed in a broad range of structural materials (wood, metal, concrete, composite materials). Describes the various approaches to gain implementation. Defined in practical action, from the design and operation of up to provide. Analysis of the technological issues, gain controls as possible..
Goals and objectives
of the course in terms
of competences and skills
Master the skills to analyze the behavior of structures and define the potential of their spare capacity (or lack of). Learn to build reinforcements (both as project development, both as a real building construction works), to determine a rational and logical approach (through the proposed variant of the comparison). Strengthen knowledge of building technologies issues, taking account of the above to an existing design of the parts and their implications. Use economic expertise in fulfilling the proposed solution Estimate
Learning outcomes
and assessment
Ability to identify structural reinforcement of the need to gather the necessary control data to learn basic techniques for creating a gain; skill to choose the most rational approach and materials - Seminar-type classes. Criterion - the approach rationality in the design gain, alternative variant of coherence and equivalence
The ability to predict the material and financial resources spent amount of time consumption, gain efficiency - Permanent work: - development of course work (project documentation preparation). Criterion - The effectiveness of an individual's proposed solution and implementation options
Ability to solve practical reinforcement of development issues in both design and solution implementation level, the acquisition of knowledge as a gain operational problems - The final testing - multiple detail and reasonableness, the solution proposed for the visualization quality
Course prerequisites Basic structural design, working with the project of building constructive developments section of software.
