A E 403
Advanced Steel Design for Buildings (3) Continuation of A.E. 401. Advanced analysis, design, and detail of the structural elements in wood and steel.
A E 403 Advanced Steel Design for Buildings (3)
A E 403 is designed for 4th year Architectural Engineering students in the structural option, to build on the design and analysis base developed in the first course in steel design. This course is intended to develop competency in analysis and design of multi-story steel buildings subjected to gravity, wind and earthquake loadings, including study of connections, framing systems, composite design and plastic design of steel members.
The course prerequisites include determinate and indeterminate analysis and structural design of steel members. It will cover such topics as types of construction, the design process, loading and load cases, floor systems, floor vibration, moment rotation characteristics of connections, plastic analysis, multi-story frames, braced and unbraced frames, seismic design, leaning columns, drift, composite design and connections.
Note : Class size, frequency of offering, and evaluation methods will vary by location and instructor. For these details check the specific course syllabus.
