ENCV13133  Analysis of Structures & Stresses

This course introduces students to both classical and modern methods of structural analysis of structures. Classical methods are introduced to enable students to develop a deeper understanding of structural behaviour.

In this course students will study the modern Stiffness Matrix Method and the following classical methods: Moment-Area Method, Conjugate-Beam Method, Method of Consistent Deformation, Slope Deflection Method and Moment Distribution Method. Students will also develop competency in using influence lines to analyse the effect of moving loads on statically determinate beams and trusses. Students will learn how to idealise structures for analysis, and to use computer software to carry out analysis.
