Module content
Lectures (15h):

The issues of general and local stability of steel bar and steel surface structures. The concept of thin-walled construction.
The use of supercritical reserve capacity in the design of steel structures. Designing girders according to PN-EN 1993-1-5.
The use of SIN girders and with a web of the trapezoidal sheets in modern building solutions.
The use of cold sheet bent sections. Issues of work in light housing elements. Calculation methods. Reinforcing thin-walled structures by gluing.

Project classes (15h):

Design 1: Static calculations and dimensioning of plate girder in class 4
Design 2: Designing trapezoidal sheet

Teaching methods and techniques:
  • Lectures: Treści prezentowane na wykładzie są przekazywane w formie prezentacji multimedialnej w połączeniu z klasycznym wykładem tablicowym wzbogaconymi o pokazy odnoszące się do prezentowanych zagadnień.
  • Project classes: Studenci wykonują zadany projekt samodzielnie, bez większej ingerencji prowadzącego. Ma to wykształcić poczucie odpowiedzialności za pracę w grupie oraz odpowiedzialności za podejmowane decyzje.
Warunki i sposób zaliczenia poszczególnych form zajęć, w tym zasady zaliczeń poprawkowych, a także warunki dopuszczenia do egzaminu:

Grade in design classes: Average in projects 1 and 2.
Grade for the project: 0.5 mark for the project + 0.5 mark for defending it. Negative grade for the project or its defense leads to a negative assessment of the project.
The primary date for obtaining credit for project classes is the end of classes in a given semester (last class).

Participation rules in classes:
  • Lectures:
    – Attendance is mandatory: No
    – Participation rules in classes: Studenci uczestniczą w zajęciach poznając kolejne treści nauczania zgodnie z syllabusem przedmiotu. Studenci winni na bieżąco zadawać pytania i wyjaśniać wątpliwości. Rejestracja audiowizualna wykładu wymaga zgody prowadzącego.
  • Project classes:
    – Attendance is mandatory: Yes
    – Participation rules in classes: Studenci wykonują prace praktyczne mające na celu uzyskanie kompetencji zakładanych przez syllabus. Ocenie podlega sposób wykonania projektu oraz efekt końcowy.
Method of calculating the final grade:

Grade in design classes: Average in projects 1 and 2.
Grade for the project: 0.5 mark for the project + 0.5 mark for defending it. Negative grade for the project or its defense leads to a negative assessment of the project.
Grade for lectures: Attendance at all lectures – 5.0. Each absence lowers the grade by half a point.
Final mark: 0.4 x grade for lectures + 0.6 x grade for project classes.

Sposób i tryb wyrównywania zaległości powstałych wskutek nieobecności studenta na zajęciach:

Should the student fail project classes within the primary deadline, it is possible to pass during the lecturer consultations in the first exam session.
For excused absences, project classes can be made up for with other groups, provided the lecturer agrees and under the condition that the class is on the same topic.
Catching up on material related to justifiable absences (when it is impossible to catch up with other groups) should be done within 2 weeks and presented during consultation with a lecturer.

Prerequisites and additional requirements:

The primary date for obtaining credit for project classes is the end of classes in a given semester (last class).
Should the student fail project classes within the primary deadline, it is possible to pass during the lecturer consultations in the first exam session.
For excused absences, project classes can be made up for with other groups, provided the lecturer agrees and under the condition that the class is on the same topic.
Catching up on material related to justifiable absences (when it is impossible to catch up with other groups) should be done within 2 weeks and presented during consultation with a lecturer.
Project classes are mandatory.
