CE 415 Modern Steel Design Practice

This course covers advanced steel design from the standpoint of a modern engineering design office, emphasizing the use of computers throughout the process, including the use of commercial FEM programs for both analysis and member selection, the development of calculation spreadsheets for ASCE7 load estimation, member and connection design, and the use of BIM software for 3-D modeling and drawing production. Advanced structural steel topics include composite construction, plate girders, eccentric connections, and stability.
