PHIL601 Philosophy of Science 3 3 0 7
This course will follow three main paths: Firstly it will introduce philosophy to doctoral students. The meaning of philosophy, its scope, its sub-branches and its different schools will be the subject topic of the first weeks. Then the course will focus on the relation of philosophy with the sources of knowledge and different sciences. Here, Rationalism, Empiricism and Intuitionism will be covered during the following weeks. In the remaining weeks the course will concentrate on philosophy of science and scientific ethics. Logical positivism, paradigm changes, falsificationism, the questions of “what is science”, “what is pseudo-science?”, “what is the relation between theory and reality?” are amongst topics that will be covered. Finally, the course will concentrate on ethical theories and will particularly cover scientific ethics.

CVLE548 High Rise Buildings 3 3 0 7
The course provides an in-depth analysis and design on high rise buildings with emphasis on fundamental approach. Manual computation will be introduced from the basics throughout the seminar to facilitate the understanding, complemented by computer methods as means of verification and implementation. Some novel techniques such as two-cycle moment distribution, principle of virtual displacement (with short cut), powerful simplified unified approach in concrete section analysis/design, stability index and FC method are highlighted. Participants would surely have eye-opening to the fundamentals of high rise building from the perspectives of consulting engineers. It covers the introduction and general considerations for tall buildings, Structural systems in tall buildings, Wind effects, Structural analysis and design, Seismic design, Earthquake behavior & performance and planning & site organization for tall buildings.

The main purpose of this course is to introduce the concepts of statistically determinate forces, types of structures and internal loads. This course also introduces engineering students to the basic techniques required for analysing the majority of the structures and elements which most of structures are composed, including beams, frames, arches, trusses and cables. At the end of the course, students will be familiar with the following terms: fundamental concepts of structural analysis, stability and determinacy of structures, analysis of trusses, beams, frames, arches and cables, analytical expressions and diagrams, work and energy principles and their applications in the deformation analysis of structures, influence lines for statically determinate structures.
