Summary

1. Basis of structural design (principles of limit states design, basic variables, structural analysis). 2. Basis of structural design (partial factors method, combination of actions). 3. Self-weight, permanent actions, imposed loads for buildings. 4. Model example: reinforced concrete slab (modeling, analysis of actions, global analysis). 5. Model example: cantilever balcony beam (modeling, analysis of actions, global analysis). 6. Model example: stairs (modeling, analysis of actions, global analysis). 7. Snow load. 8. Wind load. 9. Example: Frame structure (analysis of actions, global analysis, combination of load effects). 10. Example: Timber duopitch roof (analysis of actions, global analysis, combination of load effects). 11. Thermal actions, actions during execution. 12. Actions induced by cranes and machinery. 13. Seismic actions. 14. Accidental actions (impact from vehicles, loads due to explosions).
