E – 1217 Structural Design Criteria for Buildings
Intended Audience: civil engineers, structural engineers and other design and construction professionals
PDH UNITS: 3
This course introduces you to structural design criteria for the design of buildings. Included is technical guidance for buildings constructed of concrete, masonry, steel and wood. Criteria are also included for pre-engineered metal buildings, slabs on grade, metal decks and welding.
This course will give civil and structural engineers an introduction to design criteria for concrete, masonry, steel and wood buildings.
3. METAL BUILDINGS
4. SLABS ON GRADE
5. STEEL STRUCTURES
6. METAL DECKS
At the successful conclusion of this course, you’ll be able to identify and discuss:
- Learn about design criteria for earthquake resistant design of concrete buildings;
- Learn the recommended concrete design strengths for different building elements;
- Learn about air entrainment for freeze-thaw protection in concrete structures;
- Learn criteria for inclusion of expansion joints in buildings;
- Learn about special inspections required during construction of steel structures;
- Learn about allowable stress design methods for masonry buildings; and
