Building Technologies II: Building Structural Systems I
MetadataShow full item record
This course serves as an introduction to the history, theory, and construction of basic structural systems with an introduction to energy issues in buildings. Emphasis is placed on developing an understanding of basic systematic and elemental behavior; principles of structural behavior and analysis of individual structural elements and strategies for load carrying. The subject introduces fundamental energy topics including thermodynamics, psychrometrics, and comfort, as they relate to building design and construction. This course is the first of two graduate structures courses, the second of which is 4.463. They offer an expanded version of the content presented in the undergraduate course, 4.440.
Mohr's Circle, stresses in beams, shear and bending moment diagrams, stress and strain at a point, stability of structures, truss analysis, reactions, static behavior of structures and strength of materials, construction, building technology, structures, column buckling and deflection of beams, 4.462, 4.441
