A course on the design concepts and design of structural elements subject to bending, shear and combined bending and axial compression. Topics include: introduction to limit states design and codes of practice (design objectives; strength and serviceability limit states); loads and load combinations (permanent/dead, imposed/live and wind loads); design of structural steel tension members; Euler column buckling; design of stocky and slender compression members; design of laterally supported steel beams, laterally unsupported steel beams (lateral-torsional buckling in bending and shear strength); steel beam-columns (in-plane and out-of-plane failure); steel members subjected to biaxial bending; design of steel frames, steel connections and detailing (force and moment connections).
