Design of Structural Steel Buildings

Structural Steel Buildings - Design and Practices
Civil Engineering

To help learners understand the concepts and practical aspects in the design and construction of steel buildings.

About the Course

This course provides the practical aspects in design of a small to medium rise steel building starting from the selection of the appropriate structural system based on building functionality, to the design and detailing of its various components. This course covers the assessment of different loads in the building, application of the same in analysis and design software models, various vertical and lateral load-resisting systems and the basis of its selection, integration of various services in the building, design and detailing of elements and connections, etc. This course also covers the different stages in design to execution of steel buildings briefly. 

Learning Outcomes

At the end of this course, learners will be able to design a low to medium rise steel building considering the functional, services integration and execution aspects.
