Steel Structures

This is the study programme for 2019/2020. It is subject to change.


The course initially introduces properties of steel, behavior of steel structures, corresponding fracture/failure scenarios and design philosophy of steel structures. The course mainly provides a fundamental understanding of design principles of steel structural elements/structures in ultimate, serviceability and fatigue limit states in accordance with Eurocode and National Annex. And also it discusses few case studies.

Learning outcome

After completing the course, the student shall be able to design steel structural elements such as tension members, compression members, flexural members, axially loaded members subjected to bending moments and torsion, in ultimate, serviceability and fatigue limit states. In addition, the student should be able to recognize various types of fracture models, caused by structural damages, deterioration, fatigue, as well as maintain and repair the damaged steel structural elements.

Contents

Introduction to steel structures; Properties and behavior of structural steel; Design philosophy and code of practices; Applications, types, elastic or plastic behavior (i.e. cross sectional yielding or fracture due to axial force, bending, shear or bearing and buckling of member due to local, flexural buckling, torsional or lateral–torsional) and design of steel structural elements (i.e. tension members, compression members, flexural members, axially loaded members with moments, torsion members, thin-walled members and joints) in ultimate, serviceability and fatigue limit states in accordance with Eurocode and National Annex; Introduction to NORSOK and Norwegian oil directorates rules and regulation; Applications, behavior and design principles of other alternative metals such as aluminum structures.
