#### Videos: Construction Documents for Structural Engineering

To complete the following exercises, students will need to download the datasets at the bottom of this page. They will also need headphones if they are in a lab setting among other computers.

#### Showing Dimensions

The required sizes of structural features are conveyed through use of dimensions. Distances may be indicated with either of two standardized forms of dimension: linear and angular.

#### Building Sections

Section views provide an understandable representation of hidden or complicated parts of 3D models. This produces a view which shows what would be seen if one cut through the model and looked at what was cut.

#### Building Elevations

A practical way of thinking of elevations is that an elevation is a side-view as viewed from the north, east, south, or west. Structural elevations are commonly shown in building plans to allow for the coordination of items, such as structural braces with window openings.

#### Building Plans

Plan views can be thought of as a map of a particular level of the structure with the orientation of the view looking downward from above. In structural engineering, a plan view for a floor uses a view range to isolate a specific floor.

#### Examples of Phase Based Analysis for Construction

See examples of phase based construction and its structural design considerations. Examples include a base plate and a basement wall.

#### Unit 5: Phase Based Structural Analysis

This unit will cover key features and points to consider when coordinating phased based construction and designing for sequential loading of structures

#### Video Exercises: Structural Steel

These videos, through the examples of a scaled drawing of a column, base plate, and steel beam, shows many of the standards for structural steel design.
