Structural analysis is the process of calculating the forces, moments and deflections, subjected by steel structures. A steel building is a metal structure fabricated with steel for internal supports and structured for exterior cladding, opposed to steel framed buildings, which generally use other materials for floors, walls, and external envelopes. Steel buildings are used for a variety of purposes including storage, work spaces and living accommodation. A steel structure is a system with connected parts used to support different loads from up, down and every side.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
