Ruben A. Gomez, PE
As an engineer this course will teach you all you need to know about stairs and stairways, from the basics of treads and risers in stair planning to the sophisticated and exotic stairways you see in the old movies and the sumptuous cruise ships. If you are an engineering consultant to a high scale architectural firm, you do not have to be concerned with the convoluted stair design they may come up with next time, because here you will find all the way from the standard straight stair to the execrating helical stairs.
We will tell you all the good and the bad aspects about stairs. Moreover, we will also show you which shortcuts are valid and which ones you should avoid to preserve and protect your hard earned good image and reputation.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
