BCIT is planning for a substantial return to on-campus activity for the fall 2021 term as informed by BC Public Health Officer guidelines. Refer to each course listing for details.
Introduces the limit states design of statically determinate structures comprised of steel. Topics include the design of simple tension members, compression members, beams, and beam-columns in steel in accordance with current Canadian codes.
This course isn't currently offered through BCIT Part-time Studies. Please check back next term, subscribe to receive email updates or
contact us with your comments or questions.
Upon successful completion, the student will be able to:
Classify various structural steel shapes, grades of steel, and identify the corresponding mechanical properties.
Design steel tension members, columns subjected to compressive axial load, beam-columns, and laterally supported and unsupported steel beams for flexure, shear and deflections in accordance with CSA Standard S16 Limit States Design of Steel Structures.
Describe common bolted and welded connection details.
Explain how the structural elements of a building work together to support the design loads.
Design the key structural elements in low-rise steel buildings subjected to gravity and lateral loading.
Effective as of Fall 2008
