Course Description & Objectives: 

This course introduces the student to various structural forms that support structures and convey an understanding of the primary aspects of their behaviour. Methods of static analysis of linear statically determinate elastic structures subjected to both fixed and movable loads are introduced; as well as computation of displacements using classical methods and its importance in the solution of statically indeterminate systems.                                                                                                                                                                      Objectives:

  • The student will be able to apply principles of mechanics in the determination of the reactions and q internal forces in statically determinate structures such as beams, trusses, frames and arches.
  • The student should be able to categorise the different types of actions, quantify their corresponding deformations and appreciate the final displaced shape of simple structures.
  • The student should be able to assess the effect of placement of the loads on the structure using influence lines
