1.582 Design of Steel Structures
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.
Lecture occurs 10:30 AM to 12:00 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 1-246.
