(Staff of Civil Engineering and other Departments and visiting lecturers) A course of about it lectures per week, with about is hours per week of laboratory, design and practice classes throughout the year.


Section i, comprising about i б lectures and зоо hours of laboratory, design and practice classes, will be taken by all students. In section z, comprising б units each consisting of 24 hours of lectures and tutorial classes, a number of alternative choices of topics will be offered, and students must select topics from these to give the required total prescribed time. The topics offered in Section z will depend on the staff situation, and some may not be given in a particular year. The choice of topics must be approved by the Head of Department.


(i) Structural Engineering (48 lectures, 24 hours of practice classes).

Linear structural analysis (non-matrix methods). Concrete structures and concrete tech- nology. Steel structures, connections and welding technology. Non-elastic and plastic behaviour and collapse analysis.

(ii) Hydraulic Engineering (3б lectures, 18 hours of practice classes).

Open channels, irrigation applications. System design. Basic hydrodynamics. Hydrology and drainage. Model studies. Unsteady flow. Sediment transport, river engineering.

(iii) Soil Engineering (z4 lectures, iz hours of practice classes).

Site investigation. Foundation engineering: footings, rafts and pile foundations. Seepage;

control of ground water. Design of earth dams and slopes. Retaining structures, flexible bulkheads.

(iv) Transport Engineering (24 lectures, is hours of practice classes).

Topics in the following fields: Transport systems, operating characteristics and tech- nology. Traffic engineering. Transport planning and economics. Highway design and construction practice. Pavement design.

(v) Engineering Practices (z4 lectures, 12 hours of practice classes).

(a) Engineering Construction. Topics such as the following: foundation methods, timbering, de-watering, under-pinning, etc. Structural steel fabrication. Methods of reinforced concrete construction, form-work, precasting. Erection methods.

(b) Engineering Organization and Economics. Topics such as the following: organiza- tion of civil engineering works, contracts and specifications, economic comparison of

:osting, legal aspects, critical path analysis.



This will usually include the following:

(1) original designs of structures in part or whole;

(z) a scheme of water supply, irrigation, power, sewerage, etc.;

(3) laboratory work including projects;

(4) discussion groups, visits to works in progress and special lectures by visiting speakers;

(5) essays and reports.

No student will be admitted to the Final Examination without evidence of satisfactory laboratory arid drawing olice work, which will be assessed in the deciding of examination results. Records of laboratory and drawing office work must be submitted periodically as required. Additional tests may be set during the year; the results of these may be taken into account in assessing examination results.
