General Information

Overview

This unit introduces Australian Standards used for steel and timber design. Basic material and section properties and factors affecting the properties of structural members are introduced. You will design steel and timber members subjected to axial loads, bending moments and combined actions, then check whether they comply with both ultimate and serviceability limit states as required in AS4100 and AS1720 respectively. Furthermore, you also will design steel connection and timber joints according to Australian Standards. You also develop skills in use of the computer software in structural design. You are expected to document the process of analysis and design and communicate, work and learn, both individually and in teams in a professional manner.
