Advanced Structural Analysis (15 HE credits) Certificate Nottingham Trent University

Students investigate the degree of kinematic and static indeterminacy of framed structures; linear elastic behaviour of structures (matrix structural analysis of framed structures using stiffness method); non linear behaviour of structures (material non-linearity): plastic analysis of framed structures; non linear behaviour of structures (geometric non-linearity): critical loads and buckling modes of framed structures; structural dynamics: calculation of natural frequencies of framed structures and the response to harmonic and transient loads; and elastic and plastic analysis of plates: elastic solution of plates with various loading and boundary conditions using analytical and numerical methods.

Contemporary Themes in Structural Engineering (15 HE credits) Certificate Nottingham Trent University

The course includes structural aspects of railway track systems such as track gauge, loading and types of sleepers; methods of structural analysis of typical railway track systems: 1, 2 and 3 dimensional structural modelling of track system for stress and deformation calculations; earthquake engineering of structures: basic definitions of earthquake terms such as intensity and magnitude of earthquake, wave propagation and epicentre; static and dynamic analysis of structures subject to earthquake loading; design consideration of structural components to resist earthquake loading; structural optimisation: fundamental concept and definitions of optimisation, objective function, design variables, side and behaviour constraints; methods of structural optimisation: linear and non linear programming and heuristic and genetic algorithms techniques applicable to structural design optimisation.

Architectural Engineering: Environmental Design Certificate of Professional Development University of Bath

The course provides students with the skills and knowledge base to create buildings that have a low carbon footprint and reduced environmental impact, yet provide the comfort expected in modern buildings. On this course students learn how to re-appraise the design process and develop sustainability strategies for building projects.
