Course Description

This course covers part 2 of the full course. It has 10 chapters (chapters 11-20) of the Basics of Structural Analysis. It covers more in-depth information and topics about the structural analysis of static structures. You've to finish part 1 of the course before starting to take this one. There's still a remaining part of this course, which is part 3, which has 10 more chapters. The full course ensures the understanding of structures under a variety of loads which is very important step in the design of structures.This completes the course of the Basics of Structural analysis. It is  a more advanced part of the Structural analysis of structures. It covers different methods to solve statically indeterminate structures. After finishing this course, you will be able to analyze most structures for a variety of loads. This part 3 of the Basics of Structural Analysis course includes the following chapters:

Connections subjected to Torsion.

Combined Stresses.

Determinacy and Indeterminacy.

Deflections by the double integration method.

Deflections by the Conjugate Beam method.

Deflections by the virtual work method.

Consistent Deformations method.

Slope Deflection method.

Moment Distribution method.


The three moment-Equation method.

These methods are different ways to solve statically indeterminate structures. Once you understand them, you will be familiar with the basis of the commercial software packages out there which are used to solve Structures. Also, you will have a good basis for the Structural Design of structures. You will know how to check the Structures for the combined Stresses they are generally subjected to.

I would advise students to take the 3 parts of the course in order to obtain a comprehensive understanding of Structural analysis. I bet you will be a very good Engineer once you master these basics of structural analysis. You will also be more than ready to take on design courses, specifically the design of steel
