Basics of Structural Analysis, Part 3 of 3
What you'll learn
- Basics of Structural Analysis, Part 3 of 3
- Chapters 21-30
- The final part of the Basics of Structural Analysis Course
- Math Skills, High School Level
- Statics of Structures, High School Level
This completes the course of the Basics of Structural analysis. It is a more advanced part of the Structural analysis of structures. It covers different methods to solve statically indeterminate structures. After finishing this course, you will be able to analyze most structures for a variety of loads. This part 3 of the Basics of Structural Analysis course includes the following chapters:
Connections subjected to Torsion.
Determinacy and Indeterminacy.
Deflections by the double integration method.
Deflections by the Conjugate Beam method.
Deflections by the virtual work method.
Consistent Deformations method.
Slope Deflection method.
Moment Distribution method.
The three moment-Equation method.
These methods are different ways to solve statically indeterminate structures. Once you understand them, you will be familiar with the basis of the commercial software packages out there which are used to solve Structures. Also, you will have a good basis for the Structural Design of structures. You will know how to check the Structures for the combined Stresses they are generally subjected to.
I would advise students to take the 3 parts of the course in order to obtain a comprehensive understanding of Structural analysis. I bet you will be a very good Engineer once you master these basics of structural analysis. You will also be more than ready to take on design courses, specifically the design of steel structures.
