Conceptual Design of Structures

Estimated cost: R5001 – R10 000
Field Of Study: Civil Engineering
Department Name: Civil Engineering


This course is intended to address an issue which seldom gets the attention it deserves from academics as well as practicing structural engineers: the conceptual design of structures. In general, structural engineers tend to follow either their first hunch, their `instincts¿, or the proposal of someone else (typically the architect) when deciding on a structure. The course will open up the subject for discussion and for gaining insight into this important subject.
