2. Pre-Requisites

A basic knowlegde of the following topics is advised: (1) Concrete and Steel structures, (2) Geotechnical Engineering, (3) Materials strength, (4) Calculation of structures. 

3. Justification in the curriculum, relation to other subjects and to the profession

In this holistic and skills focused course students will gain the skills to work in an architectural practice or building design company. Students will learn how to design and calculate the main structural typologies in buildings (such as beams, trusses, frames, cables or arches). To do so, firstly they will draw sketches and perform hand calculations to address the structural behavior of the main building elements (columns, slabs, beams, pads, piles…). This information will be used to check the calculations obtained by Building Information Modelling (BIM) simulation software.

5. Objectives or Learning Outcomes
Course learning outcomes
Description
Students apply the most suitable calculation and structural analysis methods to obtain the integral response of the structure, as well as the different elements that compose it, for both static and dynamic actions applied.
Students can define the construction procedures for each of the types of bridges and building structures according to their design and materials.
Students determine the actions to be considered in the design of railroad bridges and highways, as well as in the design of building structures.
Additional outcomes
