AECT 460 - Structural Steel Design
Credit Hours: 3
Lecture Hours: 3
Laboratory Hours: 0
Prerequisite(s): AECT 360
This course is a study of steel as a material, including analysis and design of steel framed members in building structures in conformance with AISC code. Typical structural components include tension members, compression members, beams, welded and bolted connections, trusses, and frames. Use of computer software to solve problems is included.
Student Learning Outcomes of the Course:
1. Understand the fundamental principles of structural steel design for buildings.
2. Determine structural steel-framed building systems and components for typical low-rise commercial, industrial, residential, and institutional buildings.
3. Calculate building components using light-gage cold-formed steel products.
4. Interpret the A.I.S.C Manual of Steel Construction, latest ed.
