1.582 Design of Steel Structures

Class Info

Provides ability to design and assess steel structures. Steel structures are taught at three levels: the overall structural system (multi-story buildings, wide-span buildings, bridges, masts, and towers); the components of a structural system (floor systems, plate girders, frames, and beams); and the details of structural components (connection types, welding, and bolting). Each level includes a balance among theoretical analysis, design requirements, and construction/cost considerations. Existing structures are used as worked examples.

This class has no prerequisites.

1.582 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by Staff.

This class counts for a total of 9 credits. This is a graduate-level class.

In the Spring 2014 Subject Evaluations, 1.582 was rated 6.6 out of 7.0. You can find more information at the MIT - Current Graduate Courses site or on the 1.582 Stellar site.
