Top Courses in Civil Engineering

Dealing with the constructions that most people come in contact with on a daily basis, Civil Engineering courses provide the knowledge and skills necessary to design, construct and maintain roads, bridges, canals, dams and buildings. Civil Engineering courses focus on one or several sub-disciplines of civil engineering, including structural, materials, water resources, coastal, geotechnical, transportation, municipal or urban engineering. Students of Civil Engineering courses will learn how to collaborate with other professionals in relevant sectors, like architects, designers, public servants, corporate executives, project managers and others.

For individuals with previous experience or coursework in related fields, Civil Engineering courses can add specialized knowledge to an already successful work portfolio. Students just starting out on their academic path can also benefit from Civil Engineering courses. Knowledge acquired in Civil Engineering courses can often complement lessons learned in other disciplines, like sociology, architecture, design, materials science, anthropology, public management or others.

Learn how to design and build with Fiber Reinforced Polymers (FRP), the new high-performance composite material for structural engineering.

Benefits of using FRPs FRPs offer designers opportunities for innovative, free-form design; Construction companies can benefit from reducing the weight of a bridge deck for example and experience a snowball effect with reductions in the costs for foundations, lifting equipment, transportation, bearings, etc.; Infrastructure owners can make profits in the long term by investing in FRP structures which are corrosion and fatigue-free and therefore exclude costly and time-consuming maintenance. FRPs in building and infrastructure

In this course, you will learn about engineering applications with FRPs in building and infrastructure development. There are more widely available courses about the use of composite materials in the field of aerospace engineering. But aspects and requirements such as scale, laminate composition, nature of loading, environment, life-span, production techniques and tolerances, quality control, inspection, and maintenance are quite different in construction projects compared with aerospace and automotive applications....

Economics and Ecologics go hand in hand for aircraft. So how do we get structures light and keep safety, durability, maintainability and other aspects up to par? You need ... [+]

Weight reduction is a key factor in the development of materials and components for use in many industries. Lightweight structures are widely used for this purpose. However, these structures present challenges: they need to be light but also safe, durable and easy to maintain. How can this be done?

This course provides an introduction to lightweight structures, starting with the "trinity" - the interaction between shape design, base material, and manufacturing. The evidence gained from both successes and failures demonstrates that the interaction between these three elements is crucial for successful designs and end products.

The course covers the design principles of lightweight structures; durability and fatigue; testing; manufacturing methods and mechanics. The main focus is on structures made with composites but the use of metals will be addressed as well.... [-]

Fatigue fractures may occur as a consequence of cyclic loading structures. In particular, within the context of fatigue and damage tolerance certification, engineers should have the knowledge and skills to analyze and assess fatigue life and fatigue performance. This includes the ability to design against fatigue and to validate designs with validated fatigue strength justifications. Fatigue fractures and related structural failures may be caused by a variety of factors, such as quality of applied materials, the production technology, the structural design, inappropriate reliability calculations, underestimations of load spectra, and inappropriate use of structures. With so many possible factors an integral and rigorous engineering approach is required.... [-]

This course delivers the skillset in linear or structural modeling that is required to solve structural problems from which you can develop finite element (FE) models for practical applications. It also teaches how results can be correctly interpreted. The course uses an open source FE package in a series of weekly practical sessions where models are constructed for sample problems and results are validated against simplified analytical models or open literature.

The majority of professionals in many branches of mechanical engineering will benefit from adding FEM to their skills array. The ability to develop modeling skills under supervision in a non-critical environment means that skills and techniques can be acquired in a logical, progressive manner.... [-]
