Advanced Structural Design

This is a written report/assignment. You are to submit calculations, diagrams, sketches and other material related to your solution. Written responses must be clearly presented on A4 sheets. Your completed solution must be clearly indicated.

Unit Learning Outcomes

LO1 Explore deflection due to wind loadings, on fixed structures, and strategies to resist wind loading.

LO2 Determine bending,shear and deflection for complex support conditions.

LO3. Design complex columns and piled foundations based on calculations.

LO4 Explore the design of tensile structures.

How did you grew and improve as a professional?Is there still room for improvement?

Model Based System Engineering

Note that it’s a reflection report. You do describe what you did and how you did it, but you also reflect on it, it’s more a discussion instead of a description. For each competence think about the questions below.

NOTE: do not copy paste these questions and answer them one by one. This is just to give you some
inspiration and to explain what we mean with selfreflection.

How did you develop a certain competence/skill? Can you give a concrete example?
What did you learn? And how? What came easy? What was difficult? How did you deal with that?
What was the learning process?
Can you give a concrete example?
What kind of mistakes did you make? How did you solve them?

How did you grew and improve as a professional? Is there still room for improvement?

What did others say? What do you think of that? How did you use (or are going to use) that feedback?

How did you deal with difficult situations? What did you do? Why? What was the result? What do you
think of it now that you look back on it?

What are you proud of and why? How did you succeed?

Calculate the velocity profiles us/use and un/use, where the velocity vector has been decomposed w.r.t. the flow direction just outside the boundary layer.

PROBLEM 2.C Stagnation flow on an infinite swept wing

For the flow near the stagnation line of an infinite swept wing the numerical solution is given (see
table below) in the form of the nondimensional velocity profiles for the directions respectively perpendicular and parallel to the stagnation line, with:


Calculate the velocity profiles us/use and un/use, where the velocity vector has been decomposed w.r.t. the flow direction just outside the boundary layer, for the case that we/ue = 0.5. Scale the components with the outer flow velocity use:
w+u = u eese 22

Calculate in addition for this case the crossflow angle )( = )( e.

Give a graphical representation of the results as profiles of η; also, plot the velocity distributions in the form of a hodograph, i.e. us versus un.

Determine also for each case which (viscous) normal and tangential stresses work on the sides of the fluid element.

PROBLEM 1.E Deformation and vorticity

Each of the expressions given below represents a twodimensional incompressible flow field, with
velocity components u and v in resp. the x and ydirection of a Cartesian coordinate frame:


(1) u = Ax v = Ay

(2) u = Ay v = Ax


Here A is a constant, with dimension of [velocity/length]. Assume that A has a positive value.


Show that both velocity fields are irrotational and satisfy the (incompressible) continuity equation.

Determine for each flow field the shape of the streamlines en sketch the flow pattern (indicate the flow direction).

Determine for each of these flow fields how a square fluid element is transported and deformed by the flow over a small time interval Δt. Make a clear sketch for each case.
Determine also for each case which (viscous) normal and tangential stresses work on the sides of the fluid element. Indicate these stresses in the sketch, noting the proper direction of the stresses and their relative magnitude.

Discuss the role of resource leveling and effective management of the construction programme to achieve shorter construction time within the proposed housing development.

Construction Process Management

A housing developer has plans to develop a major residential estate in the outskirts of Manchester. They have put forward a plan to the local council to construct 100 housing units with other facilities, infrastructure and a recreation area. Their proposal also includes a localised urban drainage system so as not to put pressure on existing infrastructurefacilities and services. The developer has already suggested a shorter construction duration so that the commercial advantages can be realised earlier amidst several competing housing developments coming up in the area.

Due to the shorter length of construction, it is anticipated that the builders will incorporate an offsite
