Course Description

The subject is suggested for student on MSc course to refresh the structural studies of the different BSc courses. The typical structural problems are presented: beams, slabs, columns, walls, trusses and bracings. All the typical structural materials are presented too: reinforced concrete, steel, timber and brick. The structural analysis is on the focus: loads, the hierarchy of structural elements, equilibrium, internal forces, stresses. The resistance of the structural elements is the other topic: elastic and plastic resistance, buckling resistance. The Eurocode is the base of the resistance calculations, but the subject tries to be ldquo;code freeCloseCurlyDoubleQuote;, the knowledge can be used all over the world. After all the students pass this subject can be ready for the advanced courses of our MSc: Special Loadbearing Structures, Comprehensive Design and Diploma Design.
