Design of Aluminum Structures
Presented by Canadian Society for Civil Engineering (CSCE)
This course is aimed at practicing structural engineers who are familiar with using other construction materials such as steel and concrete. The course will include calculation examples based on CSA S157 (2017).
- Review of aluminum fundamentals, including material properties and particularities related to its application as a structural material.
- Calculation of effective strength and section properties considering the effects of local buckling and welding.
- Strength design of tension members, compression members, bending members, and connections.
- Design for fatigue and serviceability.
- Design examples to support the theory and illustrate key concepts related to these topics.
