Basic Steel Structural Design Training

The course will overview different types of steel frames and their design requirements. Various lectures will include the behaviour and design of beams, behaviour and design of compression and tension members. The last lecture will be on analysis and design of steel connections which will involve types of connections, bolting vs welding, analysis of simple connections and design checks for bolts and welts.

Engineers and scientists involved in the design, operation and assessment of both onshore and offshore structures.
