CE 363 - Advanced Structural Analysis
CE 363 focuses on computing the response of statically indeterminate structural systems. This course will extend many of the concepts treated in CE 329, and it will introduce matrix methods of analysis that form the basis of all modern structural analysis software.
By the end of the course, you should be able to do the following:
|Compute structural deflections accounting for applied
loads, temperature effects, initial fabrication errors, support settlements,
and flexible supports. |
|Determine internal member forces and resulting stress
|Analyze statically indeterminate structures using both
stiffness and flexibility approaches.|
|Use and/or develop structural analysis software to analyze
complicated structural systems.|
|Interpret the output from computer-based analyses for the purpose of structural design.|
