ICYA-4449 Basics of Structural Steel Design

The objective of the course “Basics of Structural Steel Design” is to make the student familiar with the basic concepts related to the behavior, analysis and design of members and connections that are part of a steel structure.

Laminated, built-up and composite members, subjected to tension, compression, flexure, shear, torsion and combined forces are studied. Basic concepts of welded and bolted connections are included in the course. Additionally, serviceability design considerations such as deflections and vibrations are studied.

The analysis and design methodologies studied during the course are based on the general requirements established in the Colombian Code, NSR-10.

Software for analysis and design of steel structures and its connections are used during the course in order to get familiar to the methodologies carried on in the professional practice.
