Steel-concrete composite structural members are key components of structures across the world.
This course will cover the design of composite structures with an emphasis on composite beams and floor systems, composite columns, and composite walls.
Students will leave this course with an in-depth knowledge of relevant limit states and failure modes as well as a familiarity with the AISC360 (American Institute of Steel Construction) provisions for composites. This course is best suited for students with an undergraduate civil engineering background including a basic steel design course and will build on these concepts.
Students will learn from a top composite’s researcher with over 20 years of experience in the field. Professor Varma focuses on teaching through exploring example problems and applications of fundamental concepts, encouraging his students to both understand the principles of composite behavior and be able to apply these concepts in realistic design scenarios.
This course is available to practicing engineers for 1.5 CEUs for learners completing the course on the verified track.
