This course is intended to give the basics understanding on structural engineering theories, design rationale, and step by step procedures that will assist to understand and solve building structural problems. This course will be considered as an introduction to the structural design of steel and concrete structures; the attendee will have the understanding of how those structures resist all loadings. You will be familiar with the design and codes used to design buildings. For the structural engineer, this course will be a refresher on the basis of structural engineering and design.
• Have an overview of the basic design and structure principles • Learn the most commonly used formulas • Understand the core design philosophies • Gain an insight of the building codes governing the structural design
