MSc Dissertation Sustainable Environmental Design.Walls are the building enclosing structures and can either be load bearing or non-load bearing part of the superstructure. Walls can either be made of reinforced concrete for load bearing walls and either timber, masonry bricks, straw, etc. for non-load bearing walls. Roofs; Roofs are the overall top part of the structure mostly used a shade and protection of the building from excessive rain.Some problems in the analysis of structures containing suspended cables. 37: Lyon J.R. 1962: The incremental collapse of ductile structures. 36: Martin J.B. 1962: Some aspects of the plastic theory of structures, with special reference to transversely loaded bents and grids. 35: Oladapo I.O. 1962.
It is often best include a separate list of all the figures in the dissertation (figure number, label, page number), and a separate list of all tables in the dissertation (table number, label, page number). Chapter 1: Introduction: The introduction has several purposes. Clearly one is to set the scene for the project by giving a little relevant background information - try to grab the reader.Read More
Timber structures have the big disadvantage that compared to steel or concrete structures, damage to the material cannot be determined early by means of a visual check on the material surface. The reason for this is that the natural decay process of wood, which occurs at a permanent moisture content of more than 20% by mass inside the timber, damages the timber from the inside. A test method.Read More

A literature review serves several purposes in your dissertation. A good literature review shows that you are aware of what is going on in the field, and thus your credentials that there is a theory base for the work you are proposing to do how your work fits in with what has already been done (it provides a detailed context for your work).Read More
Structural steel and other building materials, the intensity is much higher. In the same loading conditions, steel structure containing surface is small, containing part of the thickness of surface is also small. Therefore, the stability in the steel design is a prominent issue. As long as there is compression of local structures and the possibility should be considered in the design of how to.Read More
