CE5043Structural Engineering4 ch (3C 2L)

Advanced methods of structural analysis and design, including matrix stiffness analysis of plane structures (trusses, beams and frames). Fundamental concepts related to the stiffness method are introduced during the development of a simple computer program for plane frame analysis, and approximate methods of analysis are used to check computer solutions.
