CMDP-2003Structural Analysis 1

The aim of this course is to introduce students to the basic principles of analyzing structures – both qualitatively and quantitatively.  The course consists of analysis of beams and frames to determine external reactions and internal forces (axial force, shear and bending moment), sketching approximate deflected shapes for beams, using beam diagrams to predict maximum shear, moments and deflections, and applying the determinacy test to beams and frames to establish degree of indeterminacy and identifying stable and unstable structures.  Finally, a brief lead-in to Structural Design is provided with review of Limit States Design.
