Summary
1. Current trends in development of metal structures (development of structural systems, materials and their combinations, technologies). Development and perspective of using multi-storey building.
2. Structural system of multi-storey buildings with steel and steel-concrete bearing construction. Spatial rigidity, brace and reinforcement systems.
3. Steel-concrete floor construction. Multi-storey building columns, footing and column anchorage
4. Design of industrial building structures. Composition of roof construction (roof cladding, spars). Simple plate and latticed purlins; jointed, continuous, truss and suspended purlins. Plate and latticed roof girders, roof bracings. Bearings and additional roof structures.
5. Systems of industrial building main frames. Design of columns of main frames of factory buildings. Principles of plain and lattice columns design.
6. Crane runway system in industrial buildings. Design and constructional design of a main girder and a horizontal stiffening girder of a crane runway.
7. Base and anchorage systems of columns. Space rigidity of an industrial building system. Cross-wind bracing, bracing of the building with all-stocketed columns.
8. Technology of manufacturing and realization of steel structures. Assembly of steel structures, maintenance, rebuilding and stiffening of steel structures.
9. Planar timber structures: beams, trusses.
10. Planar frames and arches.
11. Timber roofs.
12. Timber frame houses.
13. Durability of timber structures.
14. Basics of fire resistance of timber structures.
Learning Outcomes of the Course Unit
After completing this subject, students will be able to understand and apply the following skills and topic areas:
- dispositional and structural design of steel structures – general principles;
- design and assessment of steel industrial buildings (mainly steel halls)
- design and assessment of steel multi-storey buildings;
- dispositional and structural design of timber structures – general principles;
- design and assessment of typical timber structures and their members (beams, trusses, planar frames and arches, timber roofs, timber frame houses).
