This course covers structural loads (e.g., dead, occupancy, snow, wind, earthquake, rain, and ice) and the design of steel structures, including typical structural elements such as tension members, beams, columns, connections, open web joists, and deck systems. Designs are based on the AISC Steel Construction Manual using the load and resistance factor design methodology. Issues such as economics of construction and sustainability are also addressed.
