The course covers two parts, design of aluminium and stainless steel structures. The first part covers evolution of stainless steel materials/structures and examples of realized structures. Stainless steels suitable for structures are described in a detail, including their properties. Dissimilarities in assessments of members under common loadings with respect to low-carbon steels is described for both ultimate and serviceability limit states. In the end the possibilities concerning connections of stainless steel members, erection and installation of stainless steel members are described. In the second part of the subject, the same topics are covered for aluminium structures. Welding and heat-affected zones are discussed in detail in terms of weld design, section design and local welds effect in members.
