Course Description: Theory and Analysis of Statically Determinate Structures

 

OBJECTIVE: 

            At the end of the semester, the students will be able to:

1.       Mentally grasp the basic principles and theory in the structured analysis of determinate structures (Beam, Rigid Frame and Truss).

2.       apply these principles and theories into practical use as a requisite to the analysis and design of determinate structures
