CIVT 4100K - Structure Design

Credits: 4

This class aims at providing students with a solid background on principles of structural engineering design. Students will be exposed to the theories and concepts of both concrete and steel design and analysis both at the element and system levels, in accordance to American Concrete Institute (ACI) and American Institute of Steel Construction (ASCI) codes. Course content includes the introduction to steel and reinforced concrete structures and members, ACI, ASD and LRFD structural load combinations, analysis and design of steel and reinforced concrete tension and compression members, reinforced concrete footings and retaining walls, one-way slabs, steel base plate design, and practical applications of steel and reinforced concrete structures. Laboratory exercises are required in this course and consist of structural design software as well as laboratory equipment to evaluate the physical properties of steel and concrete members.
