ENG8801 Code-Based Structural Design

Units : 1
Faculty or Section : Faculty of Engineering & Surveying
School or Department : Faculty of Engineering & Surveying


All engineering projects involve design and planning stages which today are undertaken in large part with the aid of computer software packages such as Space Gass. Space Gass models of steel and reinforced concrete structures can be developed and assessed in accordance with the Australian Institute of Steel Construction recommendations. The design of structures involves making compromises between various integral components in order to satisfy loading capacities, safety and cost targets. Professional engineers are therefore required to develop their appreciation of these constraints, and proficiency in modelling using Space Gass for designing both steel and reinforced structures.
