This unit introduces the fundamental concepts for structural analysis to cover various structures when subjected to load and cover the basic methods for calculating member forces and reactions. Through this unit, you can understand the concept of structural stability and determinacy; analyse statically determinate structures, including truss, beams, frames, cables, and arches; construct influence line for beams, trusses, and floor-girder systems; analyse effects of moving loading, including concentrated loads, distributed loads, and series of concentrated loads; calculate deflection of statically determinate beams, frames, and trusses using several methods; and analyse statically indeterminate beams, frames and trusses using the force method, and slop-deflection method.
Examination 50%, two assignments (20% each) 40%, practical report 10%.
To be eligible to obtain a pass in this unit, students must achieve a mark of at least 40% in the examination and compulsory attendance is required by all students to unit-specific activities at the Waurn Ponds (Geelong) Campus. These unit-specific activities may be undertaken either at scheduled sessions on multiple days during the trimester or during a single day of unit-specific activities scheduled during Week 8.
