3. Course contents *


The course deals with:

The relation between external actions (dead load, live load, climate loads) on the one hand and stresses (normal stresses and shear stresses) and strains (normal strain and curvature) on the other hand.  This for structural elements in various materials which are subjected to extension and bending.

An overview of structural elements (beams, columns and slabs) in the ultimate limit state as well as in the serviceability limit state, in reinforced concrete, steel and timber is presented. Also, details between connections of structural elements in concrete, steel and timber are treated.
