CES 3100C - Structural Analysis

Description
This course addresses the analysis and design of basic structural forms such as beams, trusses, and frames, which are found in bridges and buildings. Classical deflection techniques such as direct integration, virtual work and moment-area; and indeterminate analysis techniques such as the force, slope, deflection and movement distribution methods are used to determine forces and deflections in elastic structures. Matrix analysis techniques are introduced, including the direct stiffness method for truss analysis. Structural analysis computer programs are introduced and directly applied in the solution of graded analysis and design problems. Approximate analysis techniques are used to check the general accuracy of computer-based results.
