Course Learning Outcomes

This course serves a dual purpose. First it examines the case of unsymmetrical bending and introduces the concept of the shear center, two remnants from Mechanics of Materials. It then treats the introductory part of structural analysis that deals with structural form, structural assembly and concepts of stability, determinacy and their applications to different structural systems. The concept of energy underpins many of the tools that are used in classical analysis methods. The determination of the internal forces and stresses in structural systems is the remainder of the coverage of the course.
