AE 6214 - Lateral Loads on Structural Systems

3 lecture hours 0 lab hours 3 credits
Course Description
This course focuses on determining earthquake and wind loads on structures. Topics include basis for code procedures; code characterization of loads; code assumptions of elastic versus inelastic behavior; and detailing for inelastic response. (prereq: AE 6212  or CV 6212 )
Course Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
  • Determine wind loads on the main wind force resisting system 
  • Determine wind loads on components and cladding 
  • Determine earthquake loads on a structure
