Course Objectives The aims of this course is to provide a tool in the Structural Design process that allows the quantitative evaluation of safety and functionality of structural members. Students will learn both simple hand calculations as well as computer based structural analysis techniques and ways to compare and check results.
Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Quantify safety and functionality of man-made structures.
  • Determine the internal force and displacement response of a structural system under a set of loads.
  • Perform analysis of statically determinate structures due to moving loads.
  • Perform analysis of the internal forces (stress resultants) using equations of equilibrium.
  • Sketch the deflected shape and use the approximate analysis methods to verify exact or computer solution.
Course Content Classical methods of analysis for statically indeterminate structures. Development of computer codes for the analysis of civil structures from the matrix formulation of the classical structural theory, through the direct stiffness formulation, to production-type structural analysis programs.
