About this Unit
This unit deals with the construction of structural steelwork. Students will gain a better understanding of mechanical properties of steel. It covers various components in structural steelwork, and their behaviour under loads. Students will also be introduced to various frame systems in multi-story and high-rise construction and relevant Australian Standards for steel construction. Emphasis will be given to safe erection and assembly of structural steelwork. Due consideration will be given to the requirements of Workcover in relation to site safety and material handling. An introduction will also be given for Steel-concrete composite construction.
