Theory of Structures 2
|Course code CIVL3180||Units 10||Level 3000||Faculty of Engineering and Built EnvironmentSchool of Engineering|
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.
