Fields of practice: Civil Engineering program
This subject covers classical theory of structures and its application in the analysis of load-bearing structures such as residential buildings, bridges or industrial enclosures. Students learn to analyse the response of linear elastic structures under the actions of mechanical loads as well as actions resulting from environmental effects such as temperature changes and foundation settlements. Furthermore, students learn how to qualitatively predict structural behavior by deriving the deformed shape, support reactions and diagrams showing the distribution of internal forces. The concepts developed in this subject are an essential foundation for subsequent structural design subjects, such as 48353 Concrete Design and 48366 Steel and Timber Design.
