The unit provides an understanding of the methods and calculations involved in designing reinforced steel elements as per Australian Standards AS4100. This includes the design of steel beams and girders to Australian Standards AS4100; design of tension and compression members; the effects of local and lateral buckling; design of bolted and welded steel connections; effects of fire and corrosion on steel structures. Students will have the opportunity to critically evaluate different design methods and apply their integrated knowledge to practical situations.
It is recommended that student enrol in ENG569 Structural Analysis in the same semester. Students unable to enrol in ENG567 and ENG569 concurrently should complete ENG569 before attempting ENG567 for best sequencing.
This unit is reliant on on-line materials including electronic submission of assessment items. Students must have access to a reliable high-speed broadband connection and a scanner.
