AECT 150 STATICS AND STRENGTHS OF MATERIALS
Selected topics include: analysis of basic forces, conditions for equilibrium, truss analysis, stress-strain relationships, riveted and bolted connections, investigation of simple beams by shear and moment diagrams, steel and timber beam analysis and design, and simple column analysis and design.
Prerequisite: Math 138
(3: 2, 2) Spring
AECT 210 STRUCTURAL THEORY AND APPLICATIONS
This course covers the application of forces for analysis and design of building structures. Included are load analysis for wind and seismic conditions. Analysis of building structural systems including lateral force resisting systems, frames, arches, and trusses is also covered. Students are exposed to basic design in timber, steel, masonry, and concrete. A research project and computer applications are integrated into the course. (Fee)
Prerequisite: AECT 150
(4: 3, 3) Fall
AECT 240 ENERGY AND ENVIRONMENTAL DESIGN
The construction of a home has become very scientific as contemporary building practices address the concerns for energy efficiency, construction efficiency, and a safe indoor environment. The science of building is examined with the aid of microcomputers and other recent developments in building-testing equipment and techniques. Recent innovations in building materials, effects of poor indoor air quality, and moisture control are addressed.
Prerequisite: CARP 180, CNST 280, or permission of the instructor
(3: 2, 2) Spring
AECT 250 STRUCTURAL STEEL AND REINFORCED CONCRETE
Structural steel framing design using LRFD and design of reinforced concrete members using ACI-318 code are analyzed. Computer applications and a comprehensive design project of steel and concrete framed buildings are required.
Prerequisite: AECT 210
