Virtual work, energy theorems, analysis of structures by the displacement method and the finite element method, non-linear structural analysis. Project-based. Prerequisite: CE 170.
Prereqs enforced by the system: CE 170; Technical Elective (Civil); Open to Degree & Continuing Education students
This course prepares students to use matrix methods to analyze linear three-dimensional statically indeterminate frame and truss structures by the flexibility and stiffness method. The course also introduces students to the following advanced topics: modeling and analyzing structures using commercial software, stability and collapse mechanisms in structural systems.
1. Develop an expertise in the use of matrix methods (flexibility and stiffness) to analyze linear three-dimensional structural systems subject to static loading. 2. Develop expertise in applying computer programming for structural analysis. 3. Develop expertise in judicious use of commercial software for structural analysis. 4. Introduce the concept of stability of structural systems. 5. Introduce plastic analysis and collapse mechanisms of structural systems.
