This subject examines the role of structural engineers and the structural knowledge that project managers require to effectively manage and supervise projects and to be able to interact with and manage structural engineers as part of the design team. This includes the development of an understanding of structural principles by introducing students to the loads acting on simple and complex structures and demonstrating how these loads are supported by structural members and transmitted to footings. Students are provided with an appreciation of the structural behaviour of common structural systems and temporary structures through the calculation of internal structural forces and moments. Students also develop an understanding of typical structural design documentation with a focus on structural drawing and specification details.
