AbstractIn „Advanced Analysis and Design of Steel Structures”, students will learn the background and practical application of simulation-based analysis and design methods in the design and assessment of steel and steel-concrete composite structures.
ObjectiveIn „Advanced Analysis and Design of Steel Structures”, students will learn the background and practical application of simulation-based analysis and design methods in the design and assessment of steel and steel-concrete composite structures.
ContentThe course will begin with introductory lessons on the structural behaviour of plated and shell-like structures as they are found in bridges, crane girders, masts and tanks or other vessels, and the main design criteria used in standards and product specifications. This is followed by an introduction of numerical methods of analysis used for these design tasks. These include:

- Materially nonlinear analysis of steel and composite elements in frames and trusses
- Linear buckling analysis
- Geometrically nonlinear analysis of perfect and imperfect structures
- Geometrically and materially nonlinear analysis
- Methods of fatigue analysis: stress design by global and local approaches   
- Methods of fatigue analysis: calculation of stress intensity factors and J-integrals, crack propagation
- Fire structural engineering of steel elements: thermal and stress analysis.

Performance assessment

Performance assessment information (valid until the course unit is held again)
Performance assessment as a semester course
ECTS credits3 credits
ExaminersA. Taras
Typegraded semester performance
Language of examinationEnglish
RepetitionRepetition only possible after re-enrolling for the course unit.
Additional information on mode of examinationPresentation of project work, evaluation of project reports and oral examination.
Beginning in the middle of the semester, the students will work in groups on a practical application of the course content to a design problem.
The performance will be assessed by:
-(60%) Evaluation of the submitted project reports;
-(40%) Oral defence with project-related and theoretical questions (30 minutes per group of 2-3 students).
