|Callaghan Campus||Semester 1|
Previously offered in 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005, 2004
The course covers advanced methods of analysis for structural systems. Topics include introduction to the force method, displacement (stiffness) method, slope-deflection and moment distribution. The stiffness method is then expanded upon to include derivation of structure stiffness matrices by the deformation approach. Influence lines are described and reviewed. Students are introduced to plastic theory of structures and bounding theorems.
|Objectives||A1 Understand principles of structural analysis.
A2 Understand advanced structural analysis utilising structure stiffness matrices.
A3 Understand plastic theory of structures and bounding theorems.
A4 Competent user of structural analysis software.
