Objective: To acquaint the student with the theory of steel design of buildings using the load and resistance factor design (LRFD) design philosophy. Upon completion of the course, the student should be able to: Design steel tension members, columns, beams, beam-columns, and bolted and welded connections using the 13th Edition of the AISC specifications; Answer all Structural Steel Design problems in the EIT and PE exams; and Prepare students for lifetime learning as structural steel design evolves, and to form a foundation for possible post graduate studies in the subject. Outcomes: With the successful completion of the course, the student should be able to: Be able to analyze and design tension members; Be able to design concentrically loaded columns; Be able to analyze and design column base plates; Be able to design both laterally braced and unbraced beams; Be able to design beam-columns; Be able to analyze and design some types of bolted connections; Be able to analyze and design some types of welded connections; Be able to design composite beams; and Be able to learn the art of detailing.

The instructor reserves the right to slightly change the topics in order to achieve the maximum benefit of the course learning outcomes. Contribution to Program Outcomes: 1. an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering 3. an ability to design CE projects 5. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve CE problems 7. an ability to effectively communicate in oral, written, and electronic formats 9a. a recognition of the need to engage in life-long learning 9b. an ability to engage in life long learning 10. a knowledge of contemporary issues 11. an ability to use techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice 12. an ability to apply sound safety practices in laboratory and design work Assessment: All learning outcomes will be accessed through questions in class and the evaluations of homework and examination problems. Computer Usage: Software for structural analysis and steel design (SAP2000) or similar software Excel Spreadsheets AutoCAD Software The World Wide Web Research in library resources for references Electronic mail for effective communication between the professor and students Power Point Software Accreditation Category Content: Engineering Science: Engineering Design : 0.0 credits 3.0 credits (0.0%) (100.0%)

Homework and Presentation: Homework will be regularly assigned during the class time or by email. Checking your e-mail is required on a daily-basis for information regarding homework assignment.

Homework must be submitted before the starting time of class on the assignment date. Late homework is not acceptable except for unusual circumstances, e.g., an excused absence. You are expected to provide your homework in engineering papers - not a Xerox copy. Homework must be neat, readable, and must conform to acceptable Standards of Engineering Computation. The instructor will assign a presentation topic to each student. The presentations should be prepared in a PowerPoint format and given before the final exam. An electronic file of the presentation shall be provided to the instructor at the time of the presentation. Failure to submit the electronic file will result in a partial credit for the presentation. Exams:

Two exams and a final will be given during the course of the semester. Exams will be in, general, closed book and closed notes with the exception that each student may use his own copy of the 13th Edition of the AISC Manual of Steel Construction, 2005. To makeup exams will be given with the exception of unusual circumstances (institutional excuse, severe injuries, family emergencies, etc.).

Grading Policy: Homework Assignments Reading Assignments and Presentation Exam 1 Exam 2 Final Exam 25% 5% 20% 20% 30%

The instructor will not discuss the grades in e-mails or phone calls. Letter Grade Scale: 90-100 A 80- 89 B 70-79 C 60-69 D 0-59 F The instructor does reserve the right to slightly adjust or scale the grades based on class groupings. Attendance: All students shall attend all classes. The instructor may accept your absence for one session provided that an advance notice will be given, unless this is unavoidable.

Absence for one time without an advance notice may result in affecting the final grade of the class. Multiple absences shall affect the final grade of the class. Engineering Ethics and Academic Honesty: It will be assumed that each student subscribes to a professional code of ethics that is the basis for his/her behavior in class. Any and every case where the professional code of ethics and academic honesty are violated will be dealt with in accordance with the student handbook and the governing provisions of Marshall University. Additional Information: [1] Arrangement for inviting a guest speaker from the industry will be made.


The instructor may give presentations on the application of cold formed sections in light framing and a presentation on the use of steel to advance the civil and bridge engineering practice if time permits.
