ENGS 364 -
This course will investigate the design of steel structures
using the AISC Steel Construction Manual. We will begin by examining
the fundamental properties of steel used for building construction and
the implications of hot rolling on residual stresses. Next, we will examine
the bending moment capacity for fully-supported and partially supported
beams. The influence of stability on flexural capacity will also be addressed.
Students will learn how to analyze the capacity of composite beams that
include contributions from reimforced concrete floor slabs. Columns and
column design for single elements and frame systems will also be addressed.
Finally, we will learn design and analysis procedures for bolted connections.
