MAR3139 : Marine Structures II
- Offered for Year: 2017/18
- Module Leader(s): Dr Yongchang Pu
- Lecturer: Dr Burak Cerik
- Owning School: Engineering
- Teaching Location: Singapore
|Semester 1 Credit Value:||10|
The aims of the module are:
A1 - To introduce structural design process. Emphasis will be given to 'First Principle' design.
A2 - To introduce the effects of shear stress in beams.
A3 - To predict structural responses of structures under torsion.
A4 - To deliver knowledge and skills to undertake finitie element analysis for frame and plated structures.
Outline Of Syllabus
The module increases the awareness of structural behaviour and develops advanced structural and material concepts.
Topics include: design philosophy; finite element methods; inelastic behaviour; the design process in structural design - first principle design and rule-based design; shear stress in beams; torsion in open and closed thin-walled cross-sections; strength of grillages; plastic theory and its application to beams and grillages; method of virtual work; two-dimensional plane stress analysis - Airy stress function; stress concentration factors.

Teaching Rationale And Relationship
Formal lectures are designed to deliver the theories and their relation to the current practice in the design and to explain the use of major techniques. (IKO1-IKO7).
The tutorial and practical sessions are a mix of supervised and self-organising activities in which the students practise use of the methods and apply to marine structures (ISO1-ISO5).
The private study gives time for the students to read the classic and leading edge papers on the topic of reliability theory and its application to marine structures.
The format of resits will be determined by the Board of Examiners

Assessment Rationale And Relationship
The exam allows students to demonstrate basic knowledge of the descriptive material and of the theoretical methods taught (IKO1-IKO7).
The report of the coursework tests the ability to write reports, derive mathematical expressions, solve 'real life' problems and apply the taught methods. (IKO1-IKO7, ISO2-ISO4).
The Graduate Skills Framework entries indicated as 'A' are also assessed in this way.
