Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

ABSTRACT
This paper describes and discusses the importance and impact of using physical models by engineers as an aid to a better understanding of structural engineering design, and appreciation of the implication of their choice from the conceptual to the final realisation stage. The paper reviews the experience of undergraduates from the School of the Built Environment at Coventry University (United Kingdom) by providing typical examples and highlighting the benefits of such experience.
