MARC 439: Structures III

3 credit hours

Prerequisite: ARCH 334
Application of engineering principles and analytical methods, as presented in the earlier structures coursework, to a multi-story architectural solution. Students will develop a holistic structural design response that withstands both gravity and lateral forces. The structural design will be refined by applying the principles of rigid-body statics and deformable body mechanics to the individual structural elements. Offered spring semester.
