Course Objectives This course aims to introduce architectural students elementary engineering concepts, design principles, practices and theories providing the background for design courses and it is the continuation of "ARCH 205: Statics and Strength of Materials" course. The related design codes and their important aspects will be introduced, so that a step forward in establishing a common language between architects and engineers will be taken. Difference between static and dynamic loadings and their effects on structures will be introduced with emphasize on earthquake loading.
Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Will be able to analyze design problems related to structural analysis.
  • Will be able to perform preliminary dimensioning of architectural components using structural engineering principles.
  • Will be able to classify different structural forms
  • Will be able to understand the fundamental difference between static and dynamic loadings
Course Description This course focuses structural building components and systems. Structural engineering principles which are integral to architectural design process are analyzed via analytical methods and tested via numerical models.
