Master's Programme in Civil and Constructional Engineering
Language of instruction
Norwegian / English.
BYG215 Structural design2 -Concrete and BYG306 Structural design 3 - steel and wood or equivalent
After completing the course the students should be able to:
discuss how high-performance materials can help to solve challenges better than traditional construction materials
be able to discuss the characteristics and environmental consequences of high performance variants of constructive materials, with particular focus on concrete
analyze the implications of structural "service life", using high performance materials
The theme of high performance materials is exemplified by the fact that traditional concrete and transition to UHPC are used as cases for the teaching. Opportunities that lie in the use of materials with special properties, e.g. through smart design, is explored through a R&D project
Lectures, laboratory tasks and work independently with projects. Estimated work load for the average student is 27 hours per credit.
Assessment methods and criteria
Written individual exam, 3 hours accounts for 60 % of the total grade. Project accounts for 40 % of the grade. Graded marks.
The study programme manager, in consultation with the student representative, decides the method of evaluation and whether the courses will have a midterm- or end of term evaluation, see also the Quality System, section 4.1. Information about evaluation method for the course will be posted on Canvas.
