Rationale
Many civil engineering structures are made up of steel. Knowledge of designing and detailing of steel structures is very important for civil engineers in order to make structures safe and serviceable during its life span. Limit State design philosophy is currently used worldwide for design of steel structures and its various components. Also precise and correct detailing of structural drawing is necessary in order to get the correct behavior of structures and leads to smooth construction of structures. This course will provide detailed knowledge of design and detailing of steel structures as per Indian standards.
Course Outcome
After learning the course, the students should be able to:
1. prepare structural layout of Industrial steel structures, plate girder, foot-over bridge.
2. determine the loads acting on it and identify the typical failure modes.
3. apply the principles, procedures and current Indian codal provisions to the analysis and design ofIndustrial structures, plate girder & foot-over bridges.
4. apply the principles of plastic design in steel beams & portal frames

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU
