Main topics: Introduction in the theory of steel structures. Classification. Types of construction steels – characteristics and assortment. Basic methods for dimensioning of steel structures for centric and eccentric tension and compression, bending in the elastic and plastic stage. Connections in steel structures – welding and bolt connections – calculation and construction. Beam structures – dimensioning and construction of rolled and split (composite) beams, checking and ensuring the general and local stability. Columns – types, cross-section types, work of the columns under centric and eccentric compression, dimensioning and construction. Trusses – general characteristics, static calculation, dimensioning, construction. Composition solutions of industrial building structural systems, spatial stabilization, static investigation, dimensioning of the building elements. Bearing structures of large-span buildings – beam, frame and arch structures. Multi-storey buildings with steel structure, spatial stabilization, specific features of their calculation and construction. Towers and masts – fundamentals of calculation and construction. Sheet steel structures – reservoirs, bunkers, silos – dimensioning methods, structural specificities. Prestressed steel structures – beams and trusses, methods for prestressing, calculation. Hanging covers – planar and spatial, combined systems.
