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 G. Herning.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This is a graduate-level class.
