Course-specific competence: - can determine to which class the cross section belongs by the stress configuration in the cross section and can calculate moment end shear capacity in every four cross section classes
- knows different types of instability for beams and columns (1) and how these influences the load capacity for the bar. Can calculate the load bearing capacity for a bar with respect to these instability types (3)
- can by using rules of thumb choose appropriate dimension for lattice girders (1). Can dimension truss bars and joints (3) the connection to other steel structures
- knows the framework structures in most common steel buildings and can explain how the framework is braced (1). Can dimension a typical steel building with necessary bracings included. Understands in full how the framework influences on the choice of suitable profile type and dimension so that the total steel mass for the building can be optimized (5)
- can dimension bolted joints for shear (1) and for tension and shear (3). Can dimension a bolted joint against several simultaneously acting forces i different directions (5)
- can dimension welded joints against shear, tension and torsion (1). Masters dimensioning of welded joints of various types by the component method (5)
- can dimension bended bars in fire (1). Masters dimensioning of bars exposed for bending and axial force in fire situations (5)
- knows the fundamental content in normal steel drawings and can instrumentally draw such drawings (1). Can draw sufficient drawings that can directly be used in the manufacturing industry (3). Can do apparent, structured and complete drawings for a whole building with steel framework (5)
