What are the basics of building construction

Basics of structural engineering

The module "Basics of structural engineering" consists of 2 sub-courses, which are offered jointly by the Institute for Materials in Building (WiB), the Institute for Structural Design (KGBauko) and the Facade Technology Department.

Content of the lecture

The partial event “Basics of structural engineering, Part 1”, conceived as a pure series of lectures, is supervised by the KGBauko Institute and includes the presentation of the structural interrelationships and detailed solutions that are usually encountered in structural engineering projects. All relevant design principles for the individual components of a building (from the foundation to the roof) are dealt with using practical examples. Further information on the first part of the event can be found on the homepage of the KGBauko Institute: www.kgbauko.tu-darmstadt.de

The partial event “Basics of Structural Engineering, Part 2”, which is also conceived as a pure series of lectures, is offered jointly by the Institute WiB and the Facade Technology Department. The partial event includes the presentation of the fundamental building physics interrelationships of heat, moisture, sound and fire protection, which are additionally explained using simple examples of typical building constructions. In this context, reference is also made to materials and their structural behavior.

The end of the module is a practical excursion.
