Course description and aims

The lecture focuses on fundamental theories, analytical methods and prediction and actual behavior of engineering design for transportation structures. The course covers the planning, survey, construction, construction management and maintenance management of the structure. Recent topics on the planning, theory, analysis, construction, and quality control and assurance are also presented. The site visit provides an opportunity to see actual construction of transportation structure, such as railway and highway, to study the application of theory and engineering design in the actual structures.

Student learning outcomes

Students will learn fundamental theories and analytical methods on planning, survey, design, construction, construction management and maintenance management for transportation structures. By the end of the course, students will be able to explain:
(1) Engineering design regarding planning, survey and design in civil engineering planning,
(2) Engineering design regarding planning, survey, design, construction, construction management and maintenance management in civil engineering materials,
(3) Engineering design regarding planning, survey, design, construction, construction management and maintenance management in civil engineering structures,
(4) Engineering design regarding planning, survey, design, construction, construction management and maintenance management in geoengineering structures.
