Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

  • 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.
