COURSE OBJECTIVE
• Compute loads, and distribute the loads to structural systems, components, and elements.
• Determine whether a structure is properly supported (externally stable).
• Determine whether a structure is properly configured (internally stable).
• Determine whether a structure is statically determinate or statically indeterminate.
• Compute the internal axial forces in the members of statically determinate trusses.
• Compute the internal axial forces, shear forces, and bending moments in statically determinate beams and frames.
• Compute deflections in simple trusses, beams, and frames.
• Solve for the reactions of simple statically indeterminate beams and frames.
• Solve for the internal axial force, shear forces, and bending moments in simple statically indeterminate beams and frames.
• Perform approximate analysis of rectilinear frames.
