Course detail

Specialized project (K-KDK)

FAST-BOB012Acad. year: 2022/2023

This subject is focused on obtaining of advanced knowledge in case of design and evaluation of steel, timber and composite load-bearing constructions and bridges (e.g. modes of a solution of more complicated cases of load, connections, etc.). It is as well focused on more complex principles of design, realization and drawing of steel, timber and steel-concrete constructions.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Student will learn and get under controll aims of the course within the meaning of upgrading knowledge in the field of design and realization of metal, steel-concrete and timber structures and bridges, especially with the respect to problems in the connection with the specify topic of bachelor project.


- Knowledge in structural mechanics, elasticity and plasticity (determination of internal forces, characteristics of cross-section).
- Knowledge and principles in case of design of load-bearing constructions according the limit states.
- Abilities in a creation of simply hall building computational models.
- Abilities in a determination and application of basic types of load on constructions according EC (self-weight, snow and wind load).
- Knowledge in a design of steel, timber or steel-concrete composite constructions, including connections and anchorage.
