Students will be familiar with the history of structures and structural forms, with building materials and building methods. They will understand the concepts of structural engineering design, including safety concepts, loads and structural design codes. They will be able to convert a structural concept into a mechanical model to determine internal demand and to design and detail the components of the structure, with an emphasis on reinforced concrete and post-tensioned concrete structures as well as steel and steel-concrete composite structures.
Structural Engineering – Advanced systems (summer semester):
Design of steel and steel-concrete composite structures; Post-tensioned concrete structures – design and detailing; Design of steel connections and detailing
