Courses and Descriptions

CIVL-2018Structural Analysis 1

Analyzing a Structure means being able to explain - through documented calculations - how a structure carries load without collapse or failure. This course will help prepare students to inspect, build or design structures. It will also help prepare for other courses in wood, steel and reinforced concrete design. Examples of real-life structures and potential on-the-job scenarios will help to prepare students for their future career.

In this course, students will learn how to analyze the effects of load on beams, trusses and hybrid structures. By assessing the number and types of supports and connections, students will be able to determine if a structure is stable or unstable, and determinate or indeterminate. The National Building Code will be used to predict and specify the different types of loads applied to a structure. Students will learn how to find the load path through a structure, which will help them to understand how the structure works. Understanding of how structures resist load will be improved by learning how to analyze a structure without relying solely on calculations (qualitative analysis). Students will learn how to find the distribution of elastic stresses within a cross-section subjected to both bending moment and shear and also learn how to safely connect separate pieces of material together to create a built-up cross-section by calculating the shear transfer stresses in nails, bolts, welds and structural glue.
