|101-0007-01L||Project Work Conceptual Design||O||3 credits||3S||T. Vogel|
|Abstract||A structure to be designed serves as a mean to practice the holistic approach of conceptual design by working in parallel and iteratively on different levels of detailing. Both, requirements and scope of action, are identified by the students and serve as basis for a solution. The task group organizes itself to solve complex tasks.|
|Objective||The project work conceptual design conveys a first insight into the holistic approach to cope with typical tasks of civil engineering and introduces professional techniques of civil engineering to students.|
A further aim is to consolidate the knowledge gained so far in bachelor courses, to link different domains and to fill gaps with respect to work techniques. The students analyse the inventory, formulate design requirements and boundary conditions, elaborate approaches and proposals for solutions, dimension some exemplary structural elements, practise detailing and document their work by different media.
Analysis of the inventory, layout of posters, basics of graphic representation, service criteria agreement and basis of design, structural design and modelling, preliminary dimensioning, technical drawing and model making, materialisation and detailing, literature research and scientific referencing.
Excursion with mission, lectures, autonomous work, poster session, role playing, workshop, exemplary plenary review.
Poster, sketches, service criteria agreement and basis of design, static calculations, plans, models, technical report.

|Abstract||Introduction into the basic and practical knowledge of important building materials and testing methods.|
|Objective||Introduction into the basic and practical knowledge of important building materials and testing methods.|
|Content||o Introduction of material testing equipment, with various examples of experiments on metals (tensile behaviour, hardness, bending and impact loading).|
o Theoretical background and practical aspects of concrete technology: mixture design, casting and setting; determination of mechanical properties.
o Properties of bricks and mortar: individual materials and the composite brickwork. Parameters like strength, Young’s modulus, water absorption and thermal conductivity are determined.
o Understanding the characteristic properties of wood: anisotropy, hygroscopic behaviour, shrinkage and swelling, and effect of size on strength. Introduction to test-methods for wood and wood-products.
o Introduction into the basics of scanning electron microscopy: practical exercises with the Environmental Scanning Electron Microscope (ESEM).
o Introduction to fundamentals of Finite Element Methods and their application in examples.
o Introduction to durability of building materials and building structures: assessment of potentials for detecting and locating corrosion of steel reinforcement in concrete.
