Learning outcomes of the course unit

A student gains these knowledge and skills:
Virtue for designing all type of concrete bridges for bridging over different barriers.
Knowledge of basic methods of design of cables and their trajectory.
Knowledge of basic methods of the bridges construction including their effects on structural design.
Essential knowledge about design of special types of bridges.
Essential knowledge about design of bridges in some special conditions.

Planned learning activities and teaching methods

Teaching methods depend on the type of course unit as specified in the article 7 of BUT Rules for Studies and Examinations. Education runs in the forms of lectures and trainings. Character of the lectures is based on definition of basic principles, problems and methodology. In the trainings the main subject matters are trained on individually defined projects (examples).

Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes

To gain the credit, the students should elaborate individually defined design. The students are obliged to consult the design continuously in the given terms and submit it to the fixed date. The presences in training lessons are checked.

Language of instruction
