The course contains a short introduction to the national building code 2010 and then goes into detail on how to calculate loads and loads combinations that include environmental loads and occupational loads. Loading calculations on structures in accordance to NBCC2010 which include dead, live, snow, wind and seismic loads will be discussed. A summary of the basics of structural analysis for design will be explained, then the course goes into the design of steel according to S16-09, and concrete design in accordance to A23-1 will be explained. Steel and concrete members’ designs besides steel connection design are discussed. Also foundation design will be explained for both shallow and deep foundation.

This course will be considered as an introduction to structural design of steel and concrete structures; the attendee will have the understanding of how those structures resist all loadings. You will be familiar with the design and codes used to design buildings. For the structural engineer this course will be a refresher to the basics of structural engineering and design.

Target Audience
Structural site engineers and even design engineers needing to refresh their design skills according to the new building code and design standards.
Structural contractors wanting to know how the structures they erect are designed.
Structural draftsmen wanting to know how the structures they draw are designed.
Architects and non-structural engineers such as mechanical, electrical and plant engineers interested in upgrading their knowledge and skills in the area of structural design.
After Attending This Course You Will Be Able To:
Gain a basic understanding of structural analysis.
Gain a basic understanding of building design.
