About this course

Course main content is structural engineering.Steel as construction material, stresses in steel, calculations of steel beams including tilting and deflection, calculation of pillars, introduction of point loads on beams and bracing against tilting and buckling. Dimensioning of welded and bolted connections.Wood as a construction material, tensions in wood, impact of moisture and load duration on strength properties, glulam, calculating beams including tilting and deflection, calculating columns. Mechanical three compounds: nails, bolts, screws.

Learning outcome

After completing the course, students will be able to calculate structural parts in steel and wood, and have received an introduction to the design and calculation of wood and steel connections. Students will learn to understand the theory of how steel and wood works in structural system. Students will understand how to use the rules of the euro codes for dimensioning structures so that they meet the requirements in ultimate limit State (ULS) and Service Limited State (SLS). Students will become familiar with the content of:¿ Eurocode 0 NS-EN1990-1-1 Basis of structural design,¿ Eurocode 3 EN 1993-1-1 Design of steel structures and NS-EN1993-1-8 Design of joints¿ Eurocode 5 NS-EN1995-1-1 Design of timber structuresStudents should understand the importance of proper engineering of load-bearing structures and connections of structural parts for safety, function, reliability, aesthetics and economics (material and time consumption by the construction, durability / maintenance).
  • The learning process is divided between lectures and exercises. The learning process is flipped-classroom. Exercises are an important part of learning methodology and reflects not only lectures, but should in itself provide learning. There is allocated time to exercise sessions with guidance.
  • Teacher. Guidance Hours allocated when needed.
  • TBM120 FYS110
  • Written exam 3 hours

  • The external and internal examiner jointly prepare the exam questions and the correction manual. The external examiner reviews the internal examiner's examination results by correcting a random sample of candidate¿s exams as a calibration according to the Department's guidelines for examination markings.
  • Submitted and approved assignment of all exercises except for one optional exercise.
  • Lectures: 4 hours pr week

    Exercises: 2 hours pr week

  • TBA220, 5 credits
