Course Description

Steel has been used in construction of tall buildings since the 19th Century but nowadays steel has become an option for smaller buildings and even personal residences. Steel is a “Recycle” product, thus we can use recycle steel in the construction of buildings and other civil structures. Steel has many advantages over concrete, faster method of construction meaning better for business. Because of its increased durability and low maintenance, it is an attractive building material. Thus understanding steel and learning how to design steel structures will help to prepare for the future industry.

This Design of Steel Structures course will teach you about design procedures for steel structure members and connections. This course will broaden your knowledge of how to design suitable bolt and welded connections for steel structures. You will learn a step-by-step process of designing tension and compression members, including lacing systems and batten plates. You will also learn how to design beams, bases and more.

Course Objectives

  • Providing the basic knowledge on steel structures and its advantages
  • Teaching how to design steel components like beams, columns and slabs
  • Discussing the modern techniques in analysing steel structures
  • Being able to design your own steel structures with foundation design with the knowledge of computer software.
  • Providing a fundamental and practical understanding on condition assessment of concrete structures and concrete repair and strengthening methods

Who Should Attend?

  • Architects
  • Engineers
  • Construction  professionals
