The course covers the structural design of steel members and connections. Topics include design loads and the structural design of steel beams, columns, tension members and bolted and welded connections.
- Semester 1 - 2020
On successful completion of the course students will be able to:
1. Evaluate wind loads as per the Australian Standards for steel framed structures
2. Optimise structural steel sizes in simple and complex structures
- Limit states and design loading.
- Outline of types of steel and steel structures.
- Methods of structural analysis.
- Flexural members (i.e., beams).
- Columns (i.e., compression members).
- Tension members.
- Combined actions (i.e., beams/columns).
- Bolted, pinned, and welded connections.
- Composite beams.
- Past examination and quiz paper review.
- Example design drawings and steel schedule.
