Learning outcomes:

The scientific knowledge needed for the optimum design of the building is a combination of structural elements with the complexity of the physical and the economical factors.
This course teaches the integration of wood and steel structures to achieve a functional product. Furthermore, the technological, organizational and economical factors are continuously present in the design process.
The course has the following goals:
1. Basic understanding of material properties, mainly wood and steel.
2. Ability to calculate the structural elements of a simple wood or steel structure.
3. Ability to decide/select the appropriate structure: wood vs steel.
4. Understanding of the main standards and regulations that govern the design process.

Content:
