Structural Design II (ARC-225)
An introduction to the basic principles of strength of materials, structural analysis, and design. Practical problems involving internal stresses and strains, properties of structural materials, shear and moment diagrams, beam stresses and deflections, structural behavior of beams, columns, and connections. It provides the student with the basic knowledge and skills required to analyze and design basic structural elements, including wood and steel tension members, beams, columns, and simple structural connections. Calculations use units from both the Customary English System and International System (Metric). Prerequisites: ARC 224. 3 lecture and 1 laboratory hours per week. 3 credit hours.
