Metal Structures 1 (EVB)
FAST-BOA016Acad. year: 2020/2021
The course is focused on theoretical principles of the behaviour of members and connections of load-carrying metal structures and basic design cases, including practical applications to particular cases and their understanding by students. The part of the course is also knowledge of basic principles of the configuration and structural design and detailing of typical structural systems of steel buildings of the halls, multistorey buildings and roof systems for large spans, including the basic information about the production and errection of metal structures.
