Synopsis The course will cover the different elastic analysis methods for statically indeterminate
structures. These includes analysis of trusses, beams and frames using Force Method,
Slope Deflection Equations, Moment Distribution Method, and Stiffness Method.
Fundamental of plastic theory of structures and structural analysis using computer
software are also emphasized.
Course Outcomes By the end of this course, students should be able to;
