15 Credits SPRING

Aims/Description: This module addresses the structural design of medium rise multi-storey steel-framed buildings. Consideration will be given to how such buildings are designed and constructed with particular emphasis on composite construction, frame stability and joint design. Module content will be based around design using Eurocodes 3 and 4 but with a focus on understanding the rationale behind the code provisions rather than a clause-by-clause coverage of the standards.

Restrictions on availability: This unit is only available to students taking CIVT07.
