Brief Summary of ProposalAluminum is widely utilized as a structural material, examples of which include domed roof systems, overhead and cantilevered signs, building facades, pedestrian bridges, railcars, shipping containers, floor grating, as well as truck frames and bodies. Over the past several years, aluminum shipments have totaled over 21 billion pounds. This proposal would add "Aluminum Design" to the civil engineering curriculum, with the intent of exposing graduate students to the design and behavior of aluminum structures. It is a widely used structural material for which there are little opportunities for engineers to familiarize themselves except through on-the-job training.
