Content

SEJ201 introduces and explores the fundamental concepts of mechanics of structures most relevant to Civil and Mechanical Engineering students. This unit builds on concepts introduced in Engineering Fundamentals and Materials in first year and prepares students to continue their studies into Advanced Stress and Structural Analysis. The unit will address concepts and skills in loading and force systems, section properties, shear force and bending moments, basic structural analysis and member selection with skills applied in a real world structural design project context.

Hurdle requirement

To be eligible for a pass in this unit, students must achieve a minimum of 50% averaged over all quizzes and a minimum of 50% on the response to constraint and the final project report.
