Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2022-2023.

Building off the introductory course in the topic which focused on the fundamental behavior of structural members, this class will explore the behavior, interaction, and design of more complex structural systems in metal structures.  Analyzing, designing, and detailing the transfer of load through the structures and its components will be the focus.   The course will cover composite floor systems and columns, bolted and welded connections, built-up members, trusses, bracing for stability, vibration, and other advanced topics.   

When Offered Fall.

Prerequisites/Corequisites Prerequisite: CEE 4740 or permission of instructor.

  • Understand principles and behaviors of structural systems in metal structures and apply them in design.
  • Analyze how loads are transferred through the structural system and identify the most critical components.
  • Identify key considerations of constructible, resilient and serviceable structures, and formulate appropriate solutions to address these considerations.
  • Demonstrate the application of structural engineering design within the context of a semester long design project.
