COURSE TITLE EFF YEAR EFF TERM DEPARTMENT CREDIT HOURS
CE404 DSN STEEL STRUCTURES 2020 2 Civil and Mechanical Engineering 3.5 (BS=0.0, ET=3.5, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
This course teaches the engineering thought process through the design of steel structures. The course synthesizes the fundamentals of statics, mechanics of materials, and structural analysis and applies them to the design of structural members, with emphasis on satisfying real-world needs. Topics include an introduction to the design of structural systems, design of steel tension and compression members, design of beams and beam-columns, and an introduction to connection design. Students read, interpret and create structural plans using an intelligent 3D digital modeling and design software. Students analyze structural systems and elements using finite element modeling software. All design is performed in accordance with codes and specifications used in current engineering practice. A comprehensive design problem requires development of a design methodology, consideration of alternative solutions, and design of an optimal steel structure to meet stated functional requirements.
