Faster delivery of buildings isn’t always associated with sustainability benefits or long-term value, but things are changing. An instructive case is in the development of steel structures that not only allow speedier erection times, but also can reduce embodied carbon and create durable, highly resilient building approaches.
This course explains the how structural steel building systems are suited to construction of education facilities.
This course outlines the attributes, functions, benefits, limits, and acoustic qualities of composite deck slabs. It reviews the three primary types of composite systems that represent the full range of long-span composite floor systems and examines the criteria for their selection, design, and engineering.
This course provides an overview of structural steel deck design and the ways to improve building performance and to reduce total-project costs.
Using a real world example, course takers will learn challenges and solutions using acoustical deck in a gymnasium in Rogers, Arkansas. Users will…
Long-span composite floor systems provide unique advantages in the construction of multi-family and hospitality facilities. This introductory course explains what composite deck is, how it works, what typical composite deck profiles look like and provides guidelines for using composite floor systems. This is a nano unit course.
Increasingly, explosive blast concerns are driving the design of sites, structures, façades and glazed openings for today’s commercial,…
This instructor-led video course discusses actual project scenarios where collaborative steel joist and deck design have reduced total-project costs. In an era when incomplete structural drawings are a growing concern for our industry, the course reveals hidden costs and risks that can be avoided.
Here are seven key areas where innovation in structural engineering is driving evolution.
