3 credit(s)
Behavior and design of steel structural members and connections using Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) method are studied. Structural design of tension members and beams is discussed. Analysis and design of columns, including slenderness effects, are studied. Members under combined forces also are discussed. Member stability and structural stability issues are investigated using effective length factors. Design of bolted, riveted, and welded connections are studied. General details of steel buildings are discussed. Laboratory includes design sessions as well as experiments with steel components. Three lecture hours, three lab hours.
