Course description: An intermediate course of fabrication and layout which emphasize in theory and practice of layout and fitting tubular structures made of steel. The student will learn the process of fabricating structural joints from tubular shapes through a series of competency-based exercises.
Course objectives: This course covers the theory and practice of fabrication, and layout of tubular components of various shapes and sizes. Students will learn the process of fabricating structural joints from tubular structures in steel. These exercises will be done on paper and/or tubular structures using instruction and practice fitting information.
Lecture: Students will review methodology of reproducing fabricated components from a blueprint or drawing. Methods of measuring, inspecting, geometry, tolerance requirements, and final finish of joints.
Lab: The student will demonstrate equipment safety checks; identify fabrication equipment, and components parts; demonstrate the procedures for safety operation. Demonstrate the procedures for maintaining dimensional tolerances for fabricated structures.
