101-0007-01LProject Work Conceptual Design3 credits3ST. Vogel
AbstractA structure to be designed serves as a mean to practice the holistic approach of conceptual design by working in parallel and iteratively on different levels of detailing. Both, requirements and scope of action, are identified by the students and serve as basis for a solution. The task group organizes itself to solve complex tasks.
ObjectiveThe project work conceptual design conveys a first insight into the holistic approach to cope with typical tasks of civil engineering and introduces professional techniques of civil engineering to students.
A further aim is to consolidate the knowledge gained so far in bachelor courses, to link different domains and to fill gaps with respect to work techniques. The students analyse the inventory, formulate design requirements and boundary conditions, elaborate approaches and proposals for solutions, dimension some exemplary structural elements, practise detailing and document their work by different media.
ContentTopics:
Analysis of the inventory, layout of posters, basics of graphic representation, service criteria agreement and basis of design, structural design and modelling, preliminary dimensioning, technical drawing and model making, materialisation and detailing, literature research and scientific referencing.

Methodology:
Excursion with mission, lectures, autonomous work, poster session, role playing, workshop, exemplary plenary review.

Deliveries:
Poster, sketches, service criteria agreement and basis of design, static calculations, plans, models, technical report.

2 credits2GT. Vogel, K.‑H. Hamel
AbstractIntroduction to computer aided design and drafting in 2D and 3D with examples from structural engineering
ObjectiveHaving followed the course, students are able to a develop a 2D-structure (formwork drawing) and they know the principle of a reinforcement module. They have also got an introduction to a 3D program (reinforcement in 3D).
They are therefore better prepared for
- the bachelor thesis in the 6th semester,
- an eventual internship between bachelor and master course,
- the project works in the master course,
- the master thesis.
Above all they practice spatial sense and acquire contextual knowledge as future superiors of draftsmen and designers.
