To develop and justify detailed solutions to civil engineering problems by a process of appraisal, analysis and validation using specialist software, codes of practice and other learned society guidance, as appropriate. (2) To further develop presentation, team working and personal management skills.

Learning Teaching & Assessment Strategy:
Theory, critical analysis and design skills gained through lectures and design team-led tutorials, in conjunction with independent learning acquired through the use of directed study is assessed by team-based project work. Performance in tutorial sessions: (1) Student attendance: the students are expected to attend all tutorial session. If not, the student will lose 0.5 mark per absence. The maximum mark loss to absence is 5 marks. (2) Each student is expected to report what he/she did from the last tutorial session to this tutorial session and what he/she will do from this session to the next session. If not, the student will lose 0.2 mark per session. The maximum loss is 2 marks. (3) Each student is expected to join the discussion in the tutorial session via asking question, answering question, if he/she did not say anything, he/she will loss 0.3 mark per session. The maximum loss is 3 marks. The above will count for 10 marks in total, or 10%.

Outline Syllabus:
Development of detailed working solutions to civil and structural engineering problems from the conceptual solutions proposed by the end of the Feasibility Study module. The working solutions are to be presented in the form of a design report comprising working drawings with supporting calculations and the results of computer-based analysis, where appropriate. Initial improvement of the outline solutions is undertaken as a result of preliminary analysis and critical appraisal. The problems defined in the outline brief issued to the design teams at the start of the Feasibility Study module will vary from year to year but will include many of the following: Provision of designer`s risk assessment; materials selection and specification; construction method statements and simple programming of work; geotechnical processes; earth retaining structures and foundations; slope stabilisation; structural analysis; design of structural elements (various materials); composite construction; structural and condition assessment of engineering works; repair and strengthening; hydraulic analysis and design (pipelines, pumping stations, effects of wave action); erosion and weathering problems; temporary works design; floating structures (marinas). Commercially developed software is available as an analysis and drawing aid. All of the classes are conducted in a design studio environment and design teams are encouraged to discuss and develop their ideas with the design staff.
