Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

After completing this subject, students will be able to understand and apply the following skills and topic areas: - principles of structural analysis with respect to the modeling of loads; - reliability assessment of structures using the partial factors method; - calculation and modelling of permanent actions, imposed loads for buildings, snow and wind loads, thermal actions, actions induced by cranes and machinery actions during execution and accidental actions; - combination of actions.

Summary

Within the framework of the subject “Actions on Building Structures”, the students will learn about the load calculation procedures and their subsequent introduction into the global analysis of the structure. Detailed information, including practical examples, is given for typical actions on building structures, i.e. permanent actions, imposed loads for buildings, wind loads and snow loads. Acquired knowledge and skills are a prerequisite for the students to be able to design and assess the load-bearing building structures.

Compulsory literature:

- EN 1990 Eurocode: Basis of structural design. CEN, Brussels, 2004. - EN 1991 Eurocode 1: Actions on structures (relevant parts). CEN, Brussels.

Recommended literature:

Subject syllabus:

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: beam above the opening in the wall (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, fire).
