Course Description

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 structures.


What will you learn in this course:

  • To train students on how to calculate the reactions on the supports for different structures and under a variety of loading conditions.
  • To help the students become better prepared for any design course.
  • To introduce the students to Influence lines.
  • To train students to solve statically determine and indeterminate structures.
  • To teach students how to determine if a structure is stable or not.


What are the prerequisites for this course?

  • Basics of Structural Analysis, Parts 1 & 2.
  • General Knowledge of Civil Engineering.
