The course is a continuation and intensification of Statics and Mechanics of Materials course (ARCH 205). The course introduces students to the tools used to analyze structures. The overarching goal of the course is to advance the understanding of structural behavior and to enhance the ability to apply structural analysis methods to structural systems. It tackles the fundamentals of structural analysis including types of loads, the internal loadings in structural elements and deflection of structures. Students will conduct also various structural design experiments related to the topics that they have learned during lectures. This course is a pre-requisite to Arch 306 – Building Structures and Seismic Design.
