Structural design of steel and wood
- 10 ECTS
On the basis of
BYG2201 Properties of materials and structural design
Expected learning outcomes
- To structurally design steel and wood constructions, theirs connections and lateral stiffening systems according to the present Eurocodes.
- To find the design loads through the codes.
Steel design according to NS-EN 1993-1-1, NS-EN 1993-1-2, NS-EN 1993-1-5 og NS-EN 1993-1-8. Bolted and welded connections, lateral stiffening, torsional lateral buckling of steel columns, cross-section class 4, design of beams and columns for fire protection.
Wood design according to NS-EN 1995-1-1 og NS-EN 1995-1-2. Connections, gluelaminated beams of different types, lateral stiffening, hole in laminated beams. Design of beams and columns for fire protections.
Design loads based on NS-EN 1990:2002+NA2008. Dead and live loads according to NS-EN 1991-1-1, snow loads according to NS-EN 1991-1-3, wind loads according to NS-EN 1991-1-4, earth quake loads according to NS-EN 1998-1 and traffic loads on bridges according to NS-EN 1991-2.
