Amplifying of theoretical knowledge in the field of design of steel structures, aimed to the industrial and energetic buildings. Complementation of knowledge in material properties of steel and its choice for load bearing structures, reliability of design process, stability of compressed members, lateral and torsional stability of girders, buckling of plates, torsion, fatigue, thin walled cold formed members and demanding composite steel and concrete structures. Deepening of knowledge concerning tall buildings and earthquake design. Detailed design of industrial buildings, crane girders, special structures (masts, pylons, towers, chimneys, tanks, silos and pipelines, technological structures). Design of steel scaffold.


Bachelor's degree is required before this course.
