Academic content

- Purpose
- The purpose of the course is to establish the student’s basic knowledge and capabilities in the field of structural analysis of typical structural members.
- Learning outcomes
- A student who has met the objectives of the course will be able to: - Construct load combinations and determine actions according to Eurocodes 0 and 1. - Apply equilibrium equations to determine reactions in static systems. - Calculate member forces, stresses and strains in statically determinate truss structures. - Compute normal-, shear- and moment diagrams in statically determinate beam structures. - Use the principle of virtual work for the determination of reactions and section forces. - Determine deformations truss and beam structures by the principle of virtual work. - Determine moment of inertia for simple cross sections - Determine normal stresses in trusses and beams - Determine the load carrying capacity of columns - Calculate reaction forces and section forces in simple arches and cable structures.
- Content
- The course is an introductory course to civil engineering, building further on mechanics through working with material properties of typical building materials, statics and analysis of simple structural elements.
- Learning and teaching approaches
- Lectures, problem solving, group project work with gradual application of learning outcomes from lectures.
