Entry requirements

Note: Admission requirements for non-programme students usually also include admission requirements for the programme and threshold requirements for progression within the programme, or corresponding.

Prerequisites

Structural Mechanics and Strength of Materials. Building Technology basic course. CAD Technology 2D.

Intended learning outcomes

The course intends to give basic knowledge of timber and steel structures.

  • The student should be able to describe properties and applications for the most common building construction materials
  • Design of basic structures should be performed by using tables, formulas and handbooks. The calculations should be easy to follow and understand
  • Calculations should be implemented in ultimate limit state and in serviceability limit state
  • Technical terms, symbols and conventions should be used adequately
  • Knowledge should be used integrated in analysis and solution to basic structures. Calculations should be estimated with reasonable approximations
  • The student should have an overview of function, action and validity of composed structures made up of different building units
  • The student should act in order to find creative and well working solutions to project assigments
  • Project assigments should be presented adequately. Drawings should be implemented in CAD

Course content

Timber design: Wood as a building construction material. Determination of capacity subject to bending moment, shear force and normal force. Joint design with nails, screws and bolts. Calculation of deflection. Design of various types of connection. Bracing of horizontal forces. Steel design: Steel as a building material. Calculations in ultimate limit state: Design subject to bending moment, shear force and normal force and joint design with bolts and welds. Calculations in serviceability limit state: Design subject to deformation. Constructional details and instructions. Rust and fire protection.

Teaching and working methods

The lectures contain theoretical parts, solutions to typical problems and preparation of project assigments. A field trip to a suitable object.
The course runs over the entire autumn semester.

Regulations (apply to LiU in its entirety)

The university is a government agency whose operations are regulated by legislation and ordinances, which include the Higher Education Act and the Higher Education Ordinance. In addition to legislation and ordinances, operations are subject to several policy documents. The Linköping University rule book collects currently valid decisions of a regulatory nature taken by the university board, the vice-chancellor and faculty/department boards.

LiU’s rule book for education at first-cycle and second-cycle levels is available at http://styrdokument.liu.se/Regelsamling/Innehall/Utbildning_pa_grund-_och_avancerad_niva.
