Synopsis:

Extreme effects of live load, influence lines. Matrix form of the direct stiffness method and its computer implementation for trusses and frames. Two-dimensional elasticity and its finite element treatment. Governing equations of thin plates and their finite element treatment.

Requirements:

132TELA, 132SM3E, students should have mastered the force and slope deflection methods for statically indeterminate planar frames, and trusses, and elementary elasticity, stresses and strains in beams, Hooke s law. 13 credits in structural mechanics and elasticity is a reasonable minimum to enter the course.
