This course covers the analysis of statically determinate and indeterminate structures, building on foundations from a statics course. Topics include deflection analysis; static determinacy and stability; reactions; and member forces and moments in beams, frames, and trusses (and possibly arches and cables) through determinate, indeterminate, and approximate methods. Computer applications for analysis are used. Topics such as matrix methods of analysis or dynamics/structural analysis may also be introduced.
