Portal Frame Structures present an excellent way to understand Structural Steel Design. Using software and knowing all the little tricks and shortcuts on a software is certainly useful. However understanding concepts in engineering are so much more important. If you are trying to design a portal frame structure for the very first time your focus should really not be on software. As engineers we need to understand phenomena first and that is precisely what this course offers.

Numerous topics that you would encounter in any Structural Steel Design Textbook are applicable in the design of a simple single span portal frame structure. This course aims to explore the structural design concepts. Topics that are covered include:

  1. Preliminary analysis and design of the portal frame.

  2. Elastic and Plastic Analysis.

  3. Modelling the structure.

  4. First and Second-Order Analysis.

  5. Member verifications.

  6. Bracings.

  7. Connections.

This course is aimed at facilitating an understanding of Structural Steel Design of Portal Framed Structures. Under-graduate as well as Post-graduate students will benefit tremendously form this course.

You can view and review the lecture materials indefinitely, like an on-demand channel.
Definitely! If you have an internet connection, courses on Udemy are available on any device at any time. If you don't have an internet connection, some instructors also let their students download course lectures. That's up to the instructor though, so make sure you get on their good side!
