Course Objectives This course aims to introduce elementary engineering concepts, design principles, practices and theories to architectural students, and hence provides the background for more advanced topics covered in design courses. The course is the continuation of "ARCH 205: Statics and Strength of Materials" course, therefore builds up on that background. The related design codes and their important aspects will be introduced, so that a step forward in establishing a common language between architects and engineers will be taken. Differences between static and dynamic loads and their effects on structures will be introduced with emphasize on earthquake loading.
Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Will be able to analyze design problems related to structural analysis.
  • Will be able to perform preliminary dimensioning of architectural components using structural engineering principles.
  • Will be able to classify different structural forms.
  • Will be able to understand the fundamental difference between static and dynamic loadings.
Course Description This course focuses structural building components and systems. Structural engineering principles which are integral to architectural design process are analyzed using analytical methods and tested using models.
