C&ENVENG 7007 - Structural Design (Steel)

North Terrace Campus - Semester 1 - 2015

The aim of this course is to provide students with a thorough understanding of the iterative nature of design and the fundamental principles on which the analyses are based. The course covers the design and analysis of a multi-storey steel and composite braced frame for local and global buckling as well as material failure. Wherever possible, analyses are based on fundamental principles which are globally relevant and are assessed through quizzes and/or exams. The course also includes an open ended design topic, often outside the scope of existing national standards, to develop the students' ability as an engineer and problem solver and which is assessed through the submission of a report. Topics are taken from: steel beams; composite steel and concrete beams; steel columns; beam-columns, design of bolted and welded connections.
