Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2014-2015.

Introduction to the structural engineering enterprise including aspects of design, loads, behavior, form, modeling, mechanics, materials, analysis, and construction/ manufacturing. Case studies involve different scales and various materials. Topics include analytical and finite-element computational modeling of structural systems, including cables, arches, trusses, beams, frames, and 2-D continua; deflections, strains, and stresses of structural members, systems, and 2-D continua by analytical and work/energy methods, with a focus on linear elastic behavior; the foundations of matrix structural analysis; and the application of finite-element software.

When Offered Spring.

Prerequisites/Corequisites Prerequisite: ENGRD 2020. Corequisite: MATH 2940.

  • Understand the structural engineering enterprise, the structural modeling process, and the elements of structural behavior.
  • Calculate displacements and stresses of structures by analytical and work/energy methods.
  • Perform analysis of statically indeterminate structures by the stiffness and flexibility methods.
  • Apply the stiffness method of analysis to statically indeterminate truss and beam/column structures via finite element computer programs.
