Course Objectives

The major objective of the course is to give a more thorough treatment of current methods in structural analysis, and to introduce computer aided analysis of structures. It also targets discussion of special techniques in structural analysis such as second order effects, sub-structuring, treatment of rigid end zones or shear deformations, static condensation, space structures, etc. All of the special procedures are developed within the framework of virtual work principles and basic concepts of finite element formulations. Students are expected to become familiar with the theoretical background of commercial software for stress analysis.
