CE 456 Design of Steel Structures Thursdays | 6:30–9:10 pm Fall 2011 | Course Syllabus Prerequisite CE 207 and CE 225 (Corequisite: CE 358) Professor Mohsen Kargahi, PhD, PE, SECB Office KAP 203, Office hours 5:30-6:30 pm class days Telephone (213) 821-2948 E-mail mohsen@usc.edu Introduction and Purposes Structural Steel is one of the most popular materials for construction of buildings, bridges and other structures. This class is about studying properties of steel, behavior of structural steel elements, and design procedures for these elements to withstand structural loads. Both Allowable Stress Design (ASD) and Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) will be introduced to the students, however LRFD procedures will be used throughout the class. Tension members, compression members, flexural members, and finally members subject to combined bending and axial load will be studied. In addition, simple and eccentric steel connections will be discussed. As a result of taking the course, a. The students will have an understanding of the behavior of steel elements under structural loading; b. Will be familiar with AISC-LRFD steel design procedures; c. Will be able to design primary steel structural elements of a building and their connections. Textbooks 1. STEEL DESIGN, William T.
