CIVL 331 Structural Steel and Timber Design
The objective of this course is to develop an understanding of the fundamentals in the design of steel and timber structures. To develop this understanding, the course focuses in-depth on the behaviour of steel and timber at the material, element, and system levels with specific reference to standards/codes practicing engineers use when designing with steel and timber in Canada, including CSA S16 and CSA O86. Students will learn how to design and analyze steel and timber tension members, columns, beams (laterally supported and laterally unsupported), beam-columns, and connections.
