STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS AND DESIGN 1

CIV3SD1

2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

The objective of this subject is to provide the fundamental principles and methods of structural analysis applied to both determinate and indeterminate structures such as trusses, beams, columns and frames. Commonly used structural analysis methods such as the force method, stiffness method, slope-deflection method, moment distribution method and the principle of virtual work method will be introduced. Engineering Australia Stage 1 competencies covered in this subject are 1.3, 2.2 and 2.3 (see Intended Learning Outcomes for details).
