Subject provides basic information regarding to design and application of supporting, working and industrial scaffolding systems. It is focused especialy on design rules in accordance with European codes and on modelling of structures.


Design of load bearing structures, 133NNK.

Syllabus of lectures:

1. Scaffolding - introduction, design principles, history, material, loading.

2. Facade scaffolding - classification, function, joints, spatial rigidity, stability, design by scaffolding standards.

3. Spatial scaffolding systems and falsework - classification, function, load, design in accordance with standards.

4. Steel and timber temporary structures - repetition, material properties, basic types of loads, design in accordance with the theory of limit states.

5. Rope auxiliary structures - design, types, production, application, behaviour theory, calculation.

6. Excursion to the building site - facade or spatial scaffolding in Prague or near Prague.

Syllabus of tutorials:

1. Design and check of a steel rocker arms for lifting and design modifications to increase its capacity.

2. Design and check of a steel sloping girder for a pulley fixing.

3. Design and check of a load capacity and stability freestanding (not anchored) tubular scaffolding.

4. Design of a steel or aluminum frame facade scaffolding system according to system documents.

5. Design and check of a bearing rope over the road.

Study Objective:

Participant will be able to design temporary structures accirding to new European procedures.
