Instructor Dr. Jinying Zhu Office: ECJ 4.710; Phone: 232-5502;E-mail: jyzhu@mail.utexas.edu Office hour: WF 10-11AM. TA’s office hours will be posted on Blackboard. EM306 and EM 319 and credit or registration for CE 311K W, F 9:00-10:00 pm ECJ 7.208 M 3:00-5:00 pm ECJ 1.204 No textbook is required, but you are encouraged to obtain one of the following books as a reference book. You may use any edition. • Fundamentals of Structural Analysis, 3rd Edition; Leet, Uang, & Gilbert; McGrawHill • Structural Analysis, 7th Edition; by Russ Hibbeler, Prentice Hall Blackboard CE 329 provides an introduction to basic structural analysis procedures that will be the foundation for other structural analysis and design courses. Classical procedures will be emphasized—that is procedures that are commonly used by structural engineers for both analysis and design. Objectives: Students will get fundamental understanding of structural analysis concepts and develop ability to make engineering judgment about structural behaviors. Develop understanding of loads applied to structures, how structures deform, what reactions and internal forces are produced, and how this information is used to design beams and columns. The learning goals are assessed based on student’s performance on exams and homework assignments. Outline of Topics 1) Introduction 2) Loads 3) Structural systems—Determinacy, stability 4) Determinate systems a. Equilibrium and Reactions b. Plane trusses—methods using joints or sections c. Beams and frames — Shear and moment diagrams 5) Deflections a. Sketching deflected shapes b. Moment-area method - Beams and frames c. Virtual work – beam and frame deflection d. Virtual work – truss deflection 6). Indeterminate systems a. Flexibility Method (Force method) b. Slope-deflection method (displacement method) 7). Influence lines

Prerequisite Lecture: Textbook (recommended)

Course Website Course Description:

Course Academic /Learning Goals:

No make-up quizzes will be given. • Come to class prepared with assignments complete. Illegible writing and unclear organization will lower your grade. It is accounted as one homework assignment. Do NOT use lined notebook paper. the students will evaluate the course and the instructor on the UT Course-Instructor Survey forms. Missing an exam without a valid medical excuse or previous arrangement with the instructor will result in a zero for that exam. 3) Prepare a clear sketch of the structure. 1) A mid-semester evaluation will be assigned through the blackboard website. Regular class and laboratory attendance is expected in accordance with the University’s General Information catalog and the School of Engineering policy (see the section on Attendance in the Undergraduate Catalog). Quizzes: Quizzes may be given to assess class progress in understanding concepts covered. Partial credit: partial credit will be given for solutions showing correct procedures but with calculation errors.Grading: Homework 20% Three Exams: 25% each Quizzes 5% The plus/minus (+/-) grading system will be used in the final course grade calculation. 5) Summarize your calculation results. • Do not talk with other classmates during lecture. Classroom behavior: Show respect to instructor and other students. If you need help on missed lectures. Exams: All exams and quizzes are closed book. Late Homework: No late homework will be accepted except for reasons of illness or with prior approval of the Instructor. please • Be on time to class. If you are late. closed notes. The purpose of the evaluation is to get feedback from the students. Homework: Attendance: Course Evaluation: . The mid-term exams will be given on Monday class (2Hrs). Detailed requirements for exams and homework are shown below. make sure to obtain lecture notes from other students and bring the notes to office hours. The notes page will be turned in with the exam. and describe the steps in words (IMPORTANT!). You may bring one page notes to the exam. 2) Write down brief Problem Statement. The format requirements are: 1) Use engineering paper (on the side w/o gridlines) or white paper. 2) At the end of the semester. Use straight edge for all sketches. and help the instructor improve the course. Format: Homework must be neatly organized. Final answers should be shown in a box at the end of the solution. please quickly find a seat and sit down quietly. No credit will be given for incorrect procedures or concepts. showing all loads and dimensions. 4) Show all steps of your calculations. Solved problems are not allowed on the notes.
