ARCH 3336. STRUCTURAL SYSTEMS FOR ARCHITECTURAL ENGINEERS. 3 Hours.
This course covers the engineering design of various concrete, steel and masonry structural systems used in the construction of buildings. Building types vary from single-story commercial buildings to low-rise and high-rise buildings. Current building codes and project examples are examined from a fundamental structural engineering perspective, in which the rationale for the structural system is analyzed, calculations performed, and systematic construction design processes are developed for gravity loads and lateral loads from start to completion of each project. The project examples culminate with a detailed cost analysis based on current industry trends. Prerequisite: Restricted to CE_AENUCOL, CE_ARENINT, CE_ARENBS, and CE_AREPROB majors.
