Department

Institute of Metal and Timber Structures (KDK)

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Students will acquire more in-depth knowledge and skills in the area of the calculation of the bending failure of a membrane state. They will be able to design a silo according to semi-flexural theory. They will be able to determine the load on a silo, design a chamber and hopper for a silo, design a change-over stiffening ring and carry out the calculation of the anchorage for a silo. They will acquire more detailed knowledge and skills in the area of the calculation of a truss structure for large spans and anchoring of steel structures.
