This is the study programme for 2019/2020. It is subject to change.
The course will introduce environmental loads on civil engineering structures and how they impact the structural design.
Learning outcome
The course is to give students an introduction to environmental loads. Upon completing the course, the students shall: be familiar with snow and ice loads effects on structures as well as the load design values
 be familiar with effects of earthquake on structures, and be able to compute structural response to earthquake by using the design spectrum
 be familiar with the mean and timevarying wind forces on structures, and be able to compute the static and quasistatic windinduced response
 be familiar with the linear wave theory and wave and current loads on structures
 be familiar with the design loads and design principles
Contents
Snow and ice loads. Earthquake loads. Wind and wave statistics. Mean and fluctuating wind forces. Linear wave theory. Wave forces. Design loads and design principles.
