101-0138-11L Bridge Design: Project Competition
|Periodizität||jährlich wiederkehrende Veranstaltung|
|Kommentar||Number of participants limited to 20.|
All students get on waiting list. Final registration based on application letter (information given in first lecture). Priority will be given to students attending “Bridge Design (101-0138-00 G)” and in the primary target group (Major in Structural Engineering or Projektbasierte Lehrveranstaltungen).
|Kurzbeschreibung||This module offers the possibility to apply the fundamentals of the course Bridge Design in a conceptual design project. The scenario is set as a design competition: The students (group of two) will get a basic documentation (service criteria agreement, plans, digital terrain model, geotechnical report, photo documentation, etc.) and will develop a conceptual design suitable for the given site.|
|Lernziel||At the end of the course, students will have developed a convincing bridge design that satisfies following criteria:|
_ Consideration of governing boundary conditions and constraints.
_ Conception of an efficient structural system with an adequate aesthetic expression considering the environment.
_ Definition of the relevant actions and decisive load cases.
_ Proof of feasibility by dimensioning the main structural elements.
_ Schematic overview of construction processes.
_ Appropriate presentation and visualisation of the proposed bridge design.
|Inhalt||The module is built up as follows:|
0. Presentation of problem statement / project. (1st week of semester)
1. Team registration (teams of two students).
2. Issue of documents.
3. Introduction to design tools & working methods.
4. Working on project (milestones):
... a. Define requirements and boundary conditions.
... b. Study of references and possible concepts
... c. Choice of best variant
... d. Structural modelling & calculations
... e. Plans & visualisation
|Voraussetzungen / Besonderes||It is highly recommended to attend the course “Bridge Design (101-0138-00 G)” simultaneously.|
