Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content

In this paper, the students will learn how to carry out structural analysis and design of steel structures, including both cold-formed and hot-rolled steel. Lectures will cover the theoretical background needed to analyze and design typical steel structures. Examples of design compliant to AS/NZS codes will be reviewed and discussed in the lectures. The students will apply the acquired skills to complete the design of structural members and the preparation of the relevant technical drawings.

The learning outcomes for this paper are linked to Washington Accord graduate attributes WA1-WA11.Explanation of the graduate attributes can be found at: https://www.ieagreements.org/assets/Uploads/Documents/IEA-Graduate-Attributes-and-Professional-Competencies-2021.1-Sept-2021.pdf

Paper Structure

Edit Paper Structure Content

This paper is taught through lectures and practical sessions.

Lectures: Three 1-hour face to face lectures per week. These will also be recorded on Panopto and will be available after the live session.

Practical Sessions: One 2-hour session per week (divided in two streams). Students should sign up for one stream. Sessions will be on Wednesdays (11AM to 1PM) and Thursdays (11AM to 1PM). The work is individual so no groups will be assigned. Practical sessions will be run as computer labs.

Important Note for International Students: For international students in New Zealand under student visas, regular attendance is part of your visa obligation and is checked as a requirement on the University under the Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students, to which the University is a signatory. Academic staff are formally required to monitor attendance in classes and submission of compulsory assessment events/items and to report to Waikato International in the event that any problem with irregular attendance or non-submission is not resolved.

Assessment

Edit Assessments Content

Please be aware that the current version of the paper is different from previous versions and that this is the first time the paper is run with the current content and assessments.

This class has regularly scheduled assessments. Assessments are designed to provide you with opportunities to practice material as it is taught, increasing your ability to learn and internalize the concepts. This class is 100% internally assessed. The majority of marks come from assignments covering fundamental topics on analysis and design steel structures. There are two tests to check student knowledge of the initial topics.

Samples of your work may be required as part of the Engineering New Zealand accreditation process for BE(Hons) degrees. Any samples taken will have the student's name and ID redacted. If you do not want samples of your work collected, then please email the engineering administrator, Natalie Shaw (natalie.shaw@waikato.ac.nz), to opt out.

Test 2: hot-rolled steel - analysis and design and control of hot-rolled steel beam and column profiles, 45-minute test in lecture Oct 10 – Weight 15%

Assignment 1: cold-formed steel effective width method, Due week 31 (Aug 04) – Weight 10%

Assignment 2: cold-formed steel direct strength method. Due week 34 (Aug 25) – Weight 10%
