This subject provides students from non-engineering backgrounds with a basic understanding of building structures and soil mechanics. Fundamental structural engineering concepts such as calculation of forces and reactions, properties of common construction materials, bending moments and shear forces are introduced. Structural principles encompassing Strength, Serviceability and Stability are covered. Soil properties are examined, and foundation systems introduced.

1. Identify, critically analyse and interpret external loading on structures to element form and structural components; 2. Apply the fundamentals of equilibrium and stress to perform simple calculations; 3. Describe and critically analyse the properties of technically reliable structural materials and their appropriate use within the built environment; and 4. Define, discuss and interpret appropriate foundation options based on an evaluation of soil properties.
