CIVL2007 Theory and Design of Structures II RC Component (9 March 2007) page 2 TOPIC 1: LIMIT STATES DESIGN - LECTURE NOTES - “Structural Engineering is the art of moulding materials we do not wholly understand into shapes we cannot precisely analyse, so as to withstand forces we cannot really assess, in such a way that the public at large has no reason to suspect the extent of our ignorance” (Professor K. Crews, UTS) Structural Design Objectives Strength: possess adequate reserve of strength to resist overload which may occur during the design life of the structure Serviceability: ability to perform adequately under normal day-to-day service conditions (i.e. structure does not deform significantly) Ease of Construction: feasibility Durability: resistance to progressive loss of strength and stiffness. Need to ensure adequate resistance against structural and material deterioration
