Carret icon

(3 cr.) 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, steel tension and compression members, beams and beam-columns and connections. 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. Prerequisite: CER 310 or permission of instructor. As Needed
