Course Objectives This course focuses on modern matrix analysis methods that are inherently geared for computer implementation. The detailed goals of the course are threefold: 1. Develop an understanding of structural analysis theory necessary to be a judicious and effective user of computer analysis. 2. Obtain some experience in the use of modern structural analysis programs. 3. Write a computer program for the structural analysis of two-dimensional frames. The rationale behind these objectives includes not only the significance of analysis for design but also(1) the realization that the structural engineer must take professional responsibility for the integrity of design calculations done with the aid of computers, and (2) the recognition that matrix analysis approaches are the basis for more advanced finite and boundary element methods.

Course Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Students can appreciate the significance of analysis for design.
  • Students can become a judicious and effective user of computer programs with the understanding of the structural analysis theory.
  • Students can write their own codes for the structural analysis of two-dimensional frames.
