Structural system used in different construction methods
Information about various building elements
You must be a Civil engineering student or Civil engineering professional
This topic "Methods of Building construction" gives you a lot of clarity about various aspects of construction like:
Which type of Building construction method is more suitable for a project?
Which material is more suitable for constructing a particular building element?
Why a few building elements are used only in a few types of buildings?
Why was a particular building element discovered?
Who should you hire for a particular construction project?
What are the tools and machines needed for a specific project?
In this course, the methods of construction are classified based on the load transferring system of a structure. First, you will learn about the load-bearing structural system which is used in so many oldest structures like Pyramids, colosseum and more. Then, you will learn about the framed structural system, its main building elements and why it has become very popular. Next, you will learn about various methods of constructing high-rise buildings or skyscrapers. Then, you will explore the heavy timber-framed structures which have again become popular these days. Finally, you will be exploring the amazing prefabricated materials and techniques used in building construction. So many concepts related to each method of construction are discussed in the course.
You will get to know about the structural systems used in each method, the history behind them and the purpose that led to their wide acceptance. This course also gives you a good reason behind the discovery of various building elements.
The lectures are full of amazing graphics, models, animations, images and high-quality videos. In addition to that, they are very short in duration and easy to refer, regularly.
