Learning System: 94-DOS2

Amatrol’s Design of Structures 2 Learning System (94-DOS2) expands on 94-DOS1 concepts and covers topics like beam deflection, column buckling, concrete, building design, and construction. The 94-DOS2 introduces learners to theoretical principles such as how different types of loads affect a structure and then allows them build a scale model of a four story building frame and test how different stresses act on it. This marriage of theory and hands-on skills reinforce important structural design concepts and show learners how they apply to houses, office buildings, cathedrals, malls, and more.

Among many other components, the 94-DOS2 includes a concrete beam component set that allows learners to mix and set their own concrete beams, then test them for weaknesses. Providing components that allow learners to build and test structural elements while working through the world-class curriculum is one reason that Amatrol is the world’s leader in skills-based, interactive technical learning.

Learning Topics

  • Beam Deflection
  • Beam and Column Design
  • Column Buckling
  • Building Design & Construction
  • Building Loads & Materials
  • Building Environmental Factors
  • Concrete Applications & Components
  • Concrete Mixing, Strength, & Testing
  • Safety Factors

Hands-On Learning with Real-World Skills, Including Constructing and Testing Bridges!

One of this system’s strengths is the project-oriented approach that allows learners to directly apply theoretical knowledge to hands-on skills. In fact, Design of Structures actually lets learners build scale models of Warren, Howe, and Truss bridges. After studying topics such as the different types of bridges, the forces acting against bridge structures, and the common methods of analysis, learners will assemble the bridges from supplied components and then test and analyze how different forces act on the structures to show the advantages and disadvantages of each structure.

Interactive Concrete Beam Construction & Testing eLearning Curriculum

Amatrol's concrete beam construction & testing training system features interactive eLearning curriculum that integrates various types of learning methods to create an engaging, effective learning experience. Amatrol’s multimedia eLearning curriculum includes text with voiceovers, videos, 3D animations, pictures, and interactive activities, quizzes, and self-reviews. Specific concrete beam topics covered include: concrete properties & applications; beam deflection & calculating the critical load for buckling a column; mixing and forming concrete beams with and without coarse aggregate; and determining building load paths.

Free Learning Management System (LMS)

Amatrol eLearning is easy-to-use for both students and instructors. Its web-based interface is simple to navigate and available on any WebGL-compatible Internet browser. Instructors love Amatrol eLearning for its simple, yet sophisticated Learning Management System (LMS). The LMS allows instructors to create custom courses, monitor student participation, track course progress, assess knowledge levels prior to a course, and test knowledge levels after completion. Learners appreciate the fact that they can start and stop as needed, moving through each Amatrol course at their own pace. If a self-review reveals that they didn’t understand a particular topic as well as they thought they did, they can revisit it before moving on.
