After the successful participation in the VU Design of Structures, the students are able to use the basic terminology for structures, to identify and analyze load-bearing structures as such and to understand their integration into the building.

The students are able to understand the basics of structural analysis, use them to represent simple structures in mechanical models and to analyze them using basic mechanical laws. They understand the basics of stability and the principles of bracing.

The students are able to apply simple calculation approaches for structures under forces, even under time pressure. They have knowledge about feasible dimension ranges and are able to pre-dimension and design essential structural elements.

The students are able to identify and describe load-bearing structures as part of architectural design and apply or transfer them in terms of simple concepts. They can independently derive and analyze constructive principles and criteria and evaluate these in an architectural-design context.

The objective of the VU Design of Structures is to give students a first insight into the design, functioning and calculation of structures. 

We present the common load-bearing elements and load-bearing systems of buildings and their bracing. In addition to basic knowledge of the most important structural systems and associated terminology, students are given insight into the function, mode of action, design and calculation of the most important load-bearing elements in a structure. In addition, the basic principles of statics and strength theory are taught.

On the basis of the theoretical content and its implementation in the form of exercise examples, the students put the acquired technical knowledge into the context of architectural design. Within the framework of analysis and/or design tasks, adapted to their level of knowledge, the students recognize structural systems analytically and/or design-wise from the principal structure to the respective detail as part of the architectural design.

The contents and competences are conveyed by lectures, supported by work on the blackboard and presentations. Material to illustratively demonstrate the subject presented is provided. In addition, important experiments are presented or shown as film.

The contents of the lecture are deepened via the exercise sessions which are integrated into the VU. The exercise session is based on a scriptum which supports the lecture through worked calculation examples.

Apart from the examples, covered in the exercise sessions, the scriptum contains further voluntary exercises with which the students test and practice their knowledge and skills. The work on the exercises is individual within the self-study hours, questions can be answered during consultation hours. The contents of the voluntary exercises are relevant to the exam, but they do not count towards the grade.

The project work is performed in the form of analysis and/or design tasks in the context of structural-architectural design, either as individual work or in a team, hereby serving the application and reflection of the course contents and their relation to architecture. In addition, the project work supports the students in recognizing structural aspects and related questions about the choice of materials, enhancing their ability to find, develop and evaluate their own approaches and methods to solutions.

Written or oral. More detailed information will be published at the beginning of the semester.

PowerPoint slides of the lectures and scriptum for the exercise session.
Notes of the students, taken during lectures and exercises, are necessary.

For each lecture unit, the students will be provided with a learning portfolio containing specific literature and chapter references for each block in the lecture.

The literature for the project work will be communicated individually and according to the task.

Registration only in the group "VO" for all participants, the "UE" groups for the exercise session will be assigned later.

It is the students responsibility to register for the exam, respectively to unsubscribe from it within the given timeframe.
