Course Objectives To teach the basic principles of structural analysis and various methods of analyses for beams, trusses and rigid frames which are statically determinate. To introduce the concepts of modern matrix structural analysis used in finite element method.
Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • To learn how to classify and idealize structural
  • To understand how to evaluate loads, support reactions, internal forces and, equations of equilibrium
  • To learn how to perform analysis of the internal forces (stress resultants) using equations of equilibrium
  • To understand how to sketch the deflected shape and use the approximate analysis methods to verify exact or computer solution
Course Content Classification of structural systems. Loads, assumptions and idealizations. Forces, force systems, reactions, equations of equilibrium and internal forces. Statically determinate plane systems. Statically determinate plane trusses. Classical methods of analysis for statically indeterminate structures.
