Prerequisite: Mechanics of Materials (ECIV 2411)

Course Aims:

This course aims at understanding basic principles and methods for Structural analysis and to practice problem solving in type of loads and structures, Analysis of statically determinate structures, Trusses, Internal loading (Moment, Shear diagram), Cables, Arches, Influence line, and deflections.

Course Intended Learning Outcomes:

• Analysis of Statically determinate structures.
• Draw Shear Force and Bending Moment diagrams for a beam and a Frame
• Calculate the deflection of structures due to load system using deferent methods.
• Draw the influence line of determinate structures
• Analyzing of real structure problems.
• This Course is considered the basis and prerequisite of many courses specially: Structural Analysis II, Advance structural Analysis, Reinforced Concrete Design and Design of Steel Structure.

Course Outlines:

• Type Of Structure And Loads
• Analysis Of Statically Determinate Structures
• Analysis Of Statically Determinate Trusses
• Cables And Arches
• Influence Lines For Statically Determinate Structures
• Deflections Of Structures
