AbstractIntroduction to structural mechanics, statically determinate beams and frame structures, trusses. Stresses in statically determinate structures.
Objective- Understanding the response of elastic beam and frame structures
- Ability to correctly apply the equilibrium conditions
- Understanding the basics of continuum mechanics
- Computation of stresses in elastic structures

In the course "Theory of Structures (for Environmental Engineering)", the competencies of process understanding, system understanding and modeling are taught and applied. The competence process understanding and system understanding are examined, too.
Content- Equilibrium, reactions, static determinacy
- Internal forces (normal and shear forces, moments)
- Arches and cables
- Elastic trusses
- Influence lines
- Basics of continuum mechanics
- Stresses in elastic beams
