Synopsis:

The principal objective of the course is to familiarize students with the application of basic principles of mechanics to the determination of distribution of internal forces in statically determined structures.

1. Definition of internal forces - normal force, shear force and bending moment in two and three dimensions, sign convention

2. Evaluation of internal forces at a given point from equilibrium

3. Differential equations of equilibrium, Normal force, shear force and bending moment diagrams by integration

4. Distribution of internal forces on simple straight and inclined beams

5. Distribution of internal forces on curved beams

6. Distribution of internal forces on compound beam-column structures

7. Cables subjected to concentrated and uniformly distributed loads

8. Application of principal of virtual displacements to the evaluation of internal forces

9. Geometry of mass and areas, center of gravity

10. First and second moments of area (moments of inertia), radii of gyration

11. Principle moments of inertia, ellipse of inertia

12. Elementary definition of stress

13. Review lecture
