Overview

After participating in this course you will be able to:

  • Apply structural analysis methods to beams, trusses, slabs, columns, walls, frames, footings, and pile foundations
  • Assess the design of reinforced concrete and structural steel members
  • Solve common structural engineering problems
  • Employ wood and masonry design procedures

Description
Non-structural engineers and architects need a basic understanding of structural engineering. This course provides the fundamentals without delving into complicated mathematical formulas. The course covers the design and construction of concrete, steel, wood, and masonry building structures. Lectures will be followed by simple hands-on exercises and problem-solving sessions.

Course Outline

  • Structural Loads and Procedures
  • Structural Analysis
  • Member Properties
  • Structural Behaviour
  • Reinforced Concrete Design
  • Structural Steel Design
  • Wood Design
  • Masonry Design
  • Building Design Sample

Who Should Attend
Architects, non-structural engineers (civil, mechanical, electrical, mining, chemical, and agricultural engineers) • plant engineers • fabricators and manufacturers of structural systems • general contractors • property managers • directors of physical plants • municipal building officials • building inspectors • field review personnel • project engineers, and others who would like to know more about structural systems

Required Resources:

  • Course participants are expected to have some elementary knowledge about structural design and the analysis of simple structures.
  • In order to gain the maximum benefit from this seminar, participants are encouraged to read the following texts in advance:
  • Part 4 of the National Building Code of Canada
  • Structural Commentaries (Part 4) of the National Building Code of Canada
  • Participants should bring a hand-held, battery-operated calculator to this seminar for the exercises at the end of each day.
