A E 404
Building Structural Systems in Steel and Concrete (3) Basic analysis, design, and detailing of steel and concrete structural elements for buildings, emphasizing systems design and comparisons. A E 404 is not permitted for AE Structural Option students or for Architecture students.
A E 404 Building Structural Systems in Steel and Concrete (3)
The course is designed for architectural engineering students in the Construction, Mechanical Systems and Lighting/Electrical options to gain an ability to design simple building members in steel and concrete using current professional standards, specifications and guidelines. Students will learn to combine these members into simple structural systems and compare the performance and load carrying characteristics of these systems. The course will also address general performance parameters of these materials, construction issues and key systems-integration issues for beams, columns, flooring and roofing systems, and lateral bracing systems constructed in steel and concrete. This course is considered to be the terminal course for non-structural option AE students, and is designed to provide a general understanding of design, construction and integration issues that affect these structural systems. This course may be be taken by AE Structural Option students or Architecture students.
