ARC 322 - Structures II

3 CR

The course expands upon the study and analysis of architectural structures through an exploration of the design of structural components including: wood, composite materials, reinforced concrete, cables, and steel members. Students will further study deforming forces of tension, compression, shear, and torsion along with the respective mathematical effects on the deflection of structural members including beams and columns. In addition, the concepts of structural continuity, combined stress, pre-stressing, and optimization design regarding various structural components and systems will be studied.

Prerequisite(s): ARC 221  and PHY 115  and lab.
