  • This study present the standard flow chart for civil engineering considering Korean education environment. The flow charts of USA's 20 universities and Korea's 6 universities are investigated. The standard flow chart are proposed based on the standard curriculum of civil engineering and flow charts of USA and Korea though analyzing of prerequisite of each subject. The proposed standard flow chart is expected when used to improve korean universities curriculum.

  • The object of this study is to examine the process of the birth and transformation of civil engineering education as well as of modern civil engineers, called 'State noblesse', in the state engineer groups of France. For this, we will look into the background of founding the civil engineer corps and the civil engineering school, the transformation process of the civil engineering school into the applied school of Ecole Polytechnique, the activities of civil engineers in the industrialization process, and finally the organization and identity of the civil engineer group.

  • This paper deals with the early history of the British civil engineers as a group in terms of where they originated from, how they emerged as a profession in the British society during the First Industrial Revolution, and when they began to be educated at the formal higher education institution. Eventually this paper intends to seek for something like a British style of civil engineering.

  • This paper examines the birth of civil engineers in the United States. Unlike the advanced some European countries such as Great Britain or France, as a new nation America had to import high-tech technologies from them. In the process of transplantation she had mixed up the civil engineering of British style with French's. As a result, the training of the civil engineers in America had developed in various ways.

  • In this study, several issues of engineering education of Korea were pointed out through the survey for industrial employees in the areas of civil, chemical and electronics engineering. For the area of civil engineering, a questionnaire based upon the outcomes of ABEEK(accreditation board for engineering education of Korea) was developed for the survey, and the replies from the survey were then analyzed. For the areas of chemical and electronics engineering, data obtained from the literature study were used for analyses. The results of analyses show that the level of engineering education is much lower than that of the industrial demand in the case of all three divisions. It shows the urgency in improvement of engineering education.

  • Purpose of the study is to derive improvement scheme by analyzing the actual condition of engineering ethics educational curriculum. Documentary survey was conducted to derive the concept of engineering ethics, background of how engineering ethics educational curriculum was introduced, the purpose and educational method of engineering ethics education, and the present condition of domestic and foreign engineering ethics education. On this basis, survey was taken on engineering ethics class students and company recruiters. Therefore, improvement scheme that suits domestic engineering ethics education curriculum has been suggested.

  • Local buckling can be ignored for hot-rolled ordinary strength steel equal angle compression members, because the width-to-thickness ratios of the leg don't exceed the limit value. With the development of steel structures, Q420 high strength steel angles with the nominal yield strength of 420 MPa have begun to be widely used in China. Because of the high strength, the limit value of the width-to-thickness ratio becomes smaller than that of ordinary steel strength, which causes that the width-to-thickness ratios of some hot-rolled steel angle sections exceed the limit value. Consequently, local buckling must be considered for 420 MPa steel equal angles under axial compression. The existing research on the local buckling of high strength steel members under axial compression is briefly summarized, and it shows that there is lack of study on the local buckling of high strength steel equal angles under axial compression. Aiming at the local buckling of high strength steel angles, this paper conducts an axial compression experiment of 420MPa high strength steel equal angles, including 15 stub columns. The test results are compared with the corresponding design methods in ANSI/AISC 360-05 and Eurocode 3. Then a finite element model is developed to analyze the local buckling behavior of high strength steel equal angles under axial compression, and validated by the test results. Following the validation, a finite element parametric study is conducted to study the influences of a range of parameters, and the analysis results are compared with the design strengths by ANSI/AISC 360-05 and Eurocode 3.

  • Square tubular columns are commonly used in moment resisting frames, while through-diaphragm connection is the most typical configuration detail to connect the H-shaped beam to the column. However, brittle fracture normally occurs at the complete joint penetration weld between the beam flange and the through-diaphragm due to the stress concentration caused by the geometrical discontinuity. Accordingly, three improved types of through-diaphragm are presented in this paper to provide smooth force flow path comparing to that of conventional connections. Tensile tests were conducted on four specimens and the results were analyzed in terms of failure modes, load-displacement response, yield and ultimate capacity, and initial stiffness. Furthermore, strain distributions on the through-diaphragm, the beam flange plate, and the column face were comprehensively evaluated and discussed. It was found that all the proposed three types of improved through-diaphragm connections were able to reduce the stress concentration in the welds between the beam flange and the through-diaphragm. Furthermore, the stress distribution in connection with longer tapered through-diaphragm was more uniform.

  • Civil engineering based on construction and maintenance of infrastructures for social and human development, it has a conservative aspects to adopt the high-technology and pace of change from ancient society. Therefore, the education of civil engineering consists of very similar contents from the past until now. Also, civil engineering, area is established the infrastructure widely included structure, geotechnical, hydraulic, environmental, surveying, construction management. Civil engineering have totally difference characteristics compared to manufacturing industry field for market interests such as mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, material engineering etc. Therefore, the capstone design concepts of civil engineering for public interests must be changed and applied unlike any other engineering areas capstone design. In this paper, the modified capstone design contents and instruction in civil engineering of Yonsei University is informed and evaluated using undergraduate students' course evaluations and learning assessment to verify the efficiency of modified capstone design in civil engineering.
