Aims and objectives

This unit of study aims to provide students with knowledge and skills to design steel structural elements according to Australian Standards AS4100. Students will also be equipped to analyse indeterminate structures using force (flexibility) method and displacement (stiffness) method of analysis.
 
 

Unit Learning Outcomes (ULO)

On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:

#

Description

ULO1

Analyse indeterminate structures using force (flexibility) method and displacement (stiffness) method of analysis. (K1, K3, S1, S2)

ULO2

Predict the ultimate tensile capacity of steel members. (K1, K3, S1, S2, S3)

ULO3

Evaluate the ultimate bending moment and shear capacity of steel members. (K1, K3, S1, S2, S3)

ULO4

Assess the ultimate capacity of compression-only and beam-column members. (K1, K3, S1, S2, S3)

ULO5

Design bolted connections, welded connections and faster groups (K1, K3, S1, S2, S3)

ULO6

Function effectively in small groups to design a steel structure considering different loading actions, serviceability and ultimate limit states. (A4, A7)
