C E 340
Structural Analysis (3) Analysis of statically determinate and indeterminate trusses, beams, and frames; reactions, axial forces, shears, moments, deflections. Introduction to influence lines.
C E 340 Structural Analysis (3)
The course includes an introduction to structural systems and basic analysis methods for beams, frames, and trusses. Topics covered include the analysis of statically determinate and indeterminate structures, deflection calculations, influence lines, and an introduction to the stiffness method and a software package for structural analysis. Analysis of an indeterminate structure on campus is given as a course project. The structure is analyzed with traditional hand calculations that are compared to a computer analysis.
