Advanced Structural Engineering Training System for High School | Hands-On Skills

Learning System: 96-SE3

Amatrol’s Structural Engineering 3 Learning System (96-SE3) covers a variety of foundational industrial topics including: concrete mixing, placement, and testing; how to control column and beam deflection; preventing columns from buckling; and designing buildings to both support normal loads and to stand up to environmental elements. These skills can be used to move into fields like construction, engineering, and architecture. The 96-SE3 utilizes components from the Structural Engineering 1 Learning System (96-SE1) and builds on knowledge introduced in that system.

The Advanced Structural Engineering training system includes concrete and metal beam component sets and a building component set that allow learners to practice real-world skills while they study the safety steps, advantages of certain materials, and overall theoretical knowledge behind these foundational engineering concepts. Some of the major topic areas covered by the 96-SE3’s curriculum include beam and column design, the fundamentals of concrete, building design, and building construction. This interlacing of theoretical knowledge and hands-on skills builds learner competencies and gives them the knowledge to move on to more advanced structural engineering topics.

Learning Topics

  • Beam Deflection & Column Buckling
  • Deflection of Beams
  • Introduction to Concrete
  • Concrete Mixing and Placement
  • Building Research, Design, & Construction

Mix and Form Concrete Beams and the Perform Rupture Tests

Structural Engineering 3 features concrete molds, clamps, a mixing box, and a brick trowel that learners can use to perform skills like mixing and forming concrete beams with and without coarse aggregate, performing rupture tests, and examining the effects of coarse aggregate on concrete strength. This system also includes test beams for practicing skills like calculating the deflection of a beam, calculating the critical load for buckling a column, determining building load paths, and analyzing building loads.

Learn About Vital Elements and Materials Used to Construct Safe, Sturdy Buildings

The 96-SE3’s curriculum covers some of the basic materials and elements that go into designing and constructing a safe, stable building. Specifically, topical objectives include: how to use a factor of safety in the design of a structural element; how to reinforce concrete; and how buildings are designed to withstand environmental factors.

Interactive Advanced Structural Engineering eLearning Curriculum

Amatrol's advanced structural engineering 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 structural engineering topics covered include: beam deflection & column buckling; deflection of beams; introduction to concrete; concrete mixing & placement; and building research, design, & construction. Within these topics, learners will study objectives like 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.
