On statically indeterminate structures, this course introduces their fundamental characteristics and several methods to analyze them.
This course aims to have students understand mechanical characteristics of high order statically indeterminate structures which takes a major part of building structural system.
At the end of this course, students will
1) have an understanding of the nature of statically indeterminate structures,
2) be able to use the analyzing methods introduced to solve problems.
Statically indeterminate structure, slope deflection method, moment distribution method, direct stiffness method, approximate method using D-value
|Intercultural skills||Communication skills||Specialist skills||Critical thinking skills||Practical and/or problem-solving skills|
A lecture is given for the first 90 minutes, followed by exercises for 45 minutes. Blackboard is mainly used and handouts are provided as needed.
