Learning outcomes of the course
Object of the course:
The knowledge and skills you get on this course you will need in the future in order to be able to design load-bearing timber structures for demanding grade buildings.
- Mathematic and Natural science competence
- Technological competence
The learning objectives of the course:
You can design load-bearing timber structures of the demanding grade in an ultimate-limit and service-limit state. You can also design the stiffening of frame. You can design fireproofing for load-bearing structures.
These are also the basic tasks of the course.
Designing and stiffening of a wide framed building. Designing of a wooden pillar and beam with varying height, joints of bearing frame, fire engineering of wooden parts and joints, frame systems and designing of basic components for wooden block of flats, considering weakening for beams.
The Student has to show that he masters the learning objectives of the course with proof, such as f.eg. certificate of earlier degrees, documents and performances made in working life supplemented with statements.
The course is part of studies that belong to qualifications of civil engineer (Ministry of the Environment guidelines on the difficulty classes of design tasks YM1/601/2015).
The studies follow guidelines of curriculum performed in cooperation with Universities of applied sciences and construction industry in 2017.
