CMGT 224 - Introduction to Structural Design
- Prerequisite: CMGT 214
- Co-requisite: CMGT 220
CMGT majors only. Introduction to basic knowledge of structural engineering that includes principles of analysis of structures and their application, behavior of materials under loading, selection of construction materials and design fundamentals for RCC and steel structures. Emphasis will be kept on the determination of the nature and amount of stress developed under loads, and the way structures off er resistance to it. Being the most widely used construction materials, Reinforced Concrete (RC) and steel will be covered in detail, though masonry and timber will also be described briefl y. Principles of statics and strength of materials including properties of materials, forces, equilibrium, stresses and strains are studied. Emphasis is placed on understanding the behavior or structural components associated with the construction process.
3 hrs. lect. per week
Student Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of CMGT 224, the student will be able to:

- Describe the concepts of stressfunctions such as tension, compression, shear and bending
- Apply the basic concepts for analysis of statically determinate & indeterminate structures.
- Analyze the deformation of members under loading.
- Recognize the siginificance of material properties in design.
- Demonstrate the basic design of reinforced concrete, steel, masonry, and timber structures.
