Course Description for Analysis of Structures
Analysis of Structures
Prerequisite: CES 3104C
Description: This course will investigate types of loads on structures, truss analysis, shear and bending moment diagrams, influence lines, and design envelopes. In addition, deformation of beams, frames, and trusses is covered. The course also includes an introduction to the analysis of indeterminate structures using consistent deformation, slope deflection, and moment distribution methods. Computer and matrix methods are briefly introduced and discussed.
