A study of structural engineering and the strength of building materials. Investigates the definition of structure and natural forces that act upon buildings and structural components. An in-depth analysis of common structural systems and building types as the basis for study of individual structural components. Beams, columns, foundations, load tracing, cross-sectional capabilities of individual members, bending and shear, structural connections, hybrid structures and lateral design are investigated. Sustainable design and green building methods as well as future trends in building materials are linked to structural design theory.
