Transmission principles of crane girder braking force into substructure.
Bent systems of industrial buildings.
Design of web-plate and built-up columns, footing and column anchorage.
Spatial rigidity of industrial building systems.
Lateral (wind) bracing, bracing systems of buildings with socketed columns only.
Exposed and interior walls structure of industrial buildings.

Institute of Metal and Timber Structures (KDK)

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Student will learn and master basic principles and methods of design of the metal-framed industrial building structures. Further they will learn and manage the design techniques and procedures of the actual load bearing structural systems according to the standardized European documents.
Partial problems include the questions of roof structures, dimensioning of crane girders, design of web-plate and built-up columns, spatial rigidity of industrial building systems and column anchorage. The subject lessons include also the problems of the production, assembly, maintenance and rebuilding of metal-framed industrial bearing structures.
In general, the subject content will be focused to the questions of reliability and efficiency of the load bearing structures.
