Outline and Purpose of the Course Steel building structures are built up by connecting various members and parts at fabrication factory or construction site. This course discusses types of destruction of each connection using high-strength bolts or welds based on past disaster, and explains connection design and construction condition for achieving high ductile performance in accordance with basic and applied theories of limit state design.
Course Goals To understand mechanical properties of steel material and mechanical behaviors of connections using welds or high-strength bolts, and learn design method of beam-to-column connections, brace connections and column base connections.
To learn plastic analysis based on yield line theory, and further understand fatigue fracture and design methodology to prevent it.
Schedule and Contents The 1st-2nd class: Design methodology of connections

The 3rd class: Design of brace connections

The 4th-6th class: Plastic analysis of flat plate under out-of-plane load

The 7th-10th class: Design of beam-to-column connections

The 11th-12th class: Design of column base connections

The 13th-14th class: Fatigue fracture and design against fatigue

The 15th class: Feedback of course
Evaluation Methods and Policy Evaluation will be based on the scores of five times of reports (20 points per a report).
Course Requirements Would be preferable to have completed Mechanics of Building Structures and Steel Construction.
Study outside of Class (preparation and review) To instruct as appropriate.
