The purpose of this course is to learn the philosophies and methods of AISC Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) and AISC Allowable Stress Design (ASD) of steel structures. Emphasis is on the determination of loads and load distribution, and the design of structural components (i.e., tension members, compression members, beams, and beam-columns) and their connections, in accordance with the AISC Design Specification and the AISC Manual of Steel Construction.
