This course dealt with the plastic analysis of indeterminate structures. Cold Form Steel design based on IS:801-1975, Design of Moment resisting connections, Design of Chimney and Design of Towers and Masts.
Traditional economists are of the opinion that infrastructure is the heart of the economy. Empirical data clearly shows that given a choice, investors prefer to invest their money in countries whose infrastructure is more developed. Hence, it can be said that rapid infrastructure development is one of the most basic ways in which a country can take advantage of economic opportunities. It is, therefore, no surprise that countries around the world focus heavily on building infrastructure.
Preamble
The primary concern of an engineer is design. Structural design consists conceptualization, idealization, analysis, design, construction and maintenance. Conceptualization is required to arrive at the final shape and size of the structure. Idealization involves reducing the conceived structure into primary elements. By analysis internal forces like bending moments, shear, torsion, compression and tension in each and every element is determined. Design assigns every element a particular material and size. Construction involves putting all the elements together to perform like the originally conceived structure. Maintenance is needed to keep the performance of the structure without deterioration.In this course, the exposure to code provisions, Plastic analysis and designs of structural elements, like beam, walls and columns, made of steel are dealt with. Further the elements are designed for internal forces like tension, compression, bending moment and shear.
Prerequisite
18CE220-Engineeering Mechanics, 18CE320-Mechnics of Solids
This course, intended to discuss the provisions of IS:800-2007 code practise for General Construction in Steel and its application in the design of steel elements such as tension member, compress member, flexural member and connections. Plastic analysis of continuous beam and portal frame is also within the scope of this course
Engineering profession involves lots of decision making. The decisions may range from operation to non-operation. For taking decisions of these kinds, an engineer needs among other data about the organization routine operations and non-routine operations. Accounting is a science which provides all the data by recording, classifying, summarizing and interpreting the various transactions taking place in an organization and thereby helps an engineer in taking vital decisions in an effective manner. Finance is an allied but a separate field relying on accounting and enables engineers in taking useful financial and cost related decisions by providing well defined concepts, tools and techniques
Concrete Technology focuses more on detailed understanding of concrete making materials and production process. Recent developments in concrete materials are also given adequate consideration. Going through the course, student would develop adequate understanding on concrete production process and properties and uses of concrete as a modern material of construction. The course will also enable the student to make appropriate decision regarding ingredient selection and use of concrete.
