Deepening of knowledge received from courses 134OK1 and 134OK2. Amplifying of theoretical knowledge in the field of lateral and torsional stability of girders, buckling of plates, design of thin-walled cold-formed structures, torsion; fatigue and demanding composite steel and concrete structures. Complementation of knowledge from design of steel multi-storey buildings about specialities concerning tall buildings and earthquake design. Detailed design of industrial buildings and crane girders. Design of large span roofs and special structures (masts, towers, chimneys, tanks, silos and pipelines, technological structures). Basis of design from aluminium alloys and stainless steel.
