Course Objective

The objective of the VU Design of Structures is to give students a first insight into the design, functioning and calculation of structures with an emphasize on geometry as the mediator between the technical and the architectural design. Contents include the common load-bearing elements and load-bearing systems of structural engineering and their bracing options. In addition to basic  knowledge of the most important load-bearing systems and related terminology, students gain insight into the function, mode of action, design and calculation of the most important load-bearing elements in a structure and building. To this end, the relevant fundamentals of statics and strength theory are taught.
