Content and learning outcomes
- Load combinations for design in the ultimate and serviceability limit states
- Critical loads considering flexural buckling for beams in the elastic region
- Design resistance for steel and timber beams subjected to bending in the ultimate limit state.
- Material consumption for structural members for decreased environmental impact and increased sustainability
Intended learning outcomes
After passing the course, the students should be able to:
- suggest adequate load combinations for design in the ultimate and serviceability limit states for steel and timber structures
- determine critical loads considering flexural buckling for beams in the elastic region
- verify the design resistance for steel and timber subjected to bending in the ultimate limit state
- minimize the material consumption for structural members for decreased environmental impact and increased sustainability.

Examination and completion
If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.
- TEN1 - Written exam, 3.0 credits, grading scale: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F
- ÖVN1 - Exercises, 1.0 credits, grading scale: P, F
- ÖVN2 - Exercises, 1.0 credits, grading scale: P, F
Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.
The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.
Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination
Opportunity to raise an approved grade via renewed examination
- All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
- In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
- In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
