Description

In this free online course in the Design of Tension Members in Steel Structures, you will explore the steps in designing tension members for steel structures, with examples to illustrate the designs. The course starts by stating the forms of tension members and the factors that affect the strength of tension members. You will then learn how to determine the net area of a tension member along its critical section and how to determine the design strength of tension members.

The course then proceeds to explain how to design a suitable section that can be connected to a gusset plate via bolting or welding. You will learn how gusset plates and lug angles can be designed to hold steels members in a steel structure. Lastly, you will discover how to design splices to hold member plates of a steel structure.

Tension members are structural elements that require efficient designs in order to help achieve an overall economical steel structure. If you are a civil engineer, structural designer, or one who looks to discover how tension members are designed for steel structures, then this course is for you. So, start this free course today, to realise the steps in designing tension members of steel structures.
