Aims 

After having passed this course module the student is able to:
- apply the skills comprehensively learned from previous courses for designing
and production planning of welded structures or complete member of it
- apply the theoretical knowledge for practical design and fabrication of welded structure
- have skills to collect design data and use design tools to create a competitive and fabrication
friendly construction based on requirements set by end-user
- design for fabrication (=,,considering the potential and limitations of available
fabrication processes) but also understand the background of quality requirements set
for fabrication
- understand the consisting of fabrication costs and design impact on them
- have encouragement to design and make fabrication plans later in industry, unprompted
- move this experience to work out the integrated design & fabrication process in practice
(=,,in R&D and workshop)

 
Contents 

During the course the student will become familiar with the Design of real structure based on
available load information, durability requirements and main boundary conditions given by
end-user. Using of practical design tools (analytical and numerical) and optimization
approaches to design energy efficient constructions. Working as a member of group,
consisting of design and fabrication experts, for the common goal. Create a fabrication plan
and especially welding process specifications (WPS) for a structure or a complete member of
it Methods to take into consideration the available workshop facilities when choosing
fabrication processes and evaluating fabrication costs. Practical interactive process between
design and fabrication to find a compromising solution considering strength requirements and
fabrication costs of critical structural details. Documentation of design and fabrication plan.
