Module code


The module will build on structural engineering teaching from year one and give students the necessary knowledge and means to commence design of structural systems in the third-year structures modules. Core contents include: structural form and structural systems; restraints and actions in  structures; statically determinate, statically indeterminate and unstable structures; equilibrium analysis of structures; graphic statics and qualitative analysis of structures; stress diagrams and deflected shapes; equilibrium, kinematic and constitutive equations for beams; governing differential equations for beams; elastic stability of axially loaded members; elastic-plastic constitutive behaviour of structural members; sustainable design of structural members.
