specific details regarding the course.

Course No. : CE F241

Course Title : Analysis of Structures
Instructor-in-Charge : Dr. Mohan S C

Scope of the Course:

The prime responsibility of a structural engineer is to ensure that structures transmit the service loads safely
and efficiently to the supports. While the loads are being transferred, the internal forces will be developed
along with the displacements in the structure. Analysis of these internal forces and displacements is the basic
requirement for the design of any structure. Hence learning analysis of structures will be very useful for
structural analyst and designers. The basic objective of this course is to acquire the fundamental concepts of
structural analysis. By the end of the course, the students will be familiar with basic methods of structural
analysis to obtain the internal forces and displacements in the structures.

Learning objectives:

1. able to identify the static and kinematic indeterminacy of structures and evaluate their internal forces and
2. able to construct the influence Line Diagram for determinate structures subjected to moving loads
