AbstractIntroduction to structural mechanics, statically determinate beams and frame structures, trusses, stresses and deformations, statically indeterminate beams and frame structures (force method)
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 and deformations of elastic structures
- Ability to apply the force (flexibility) method for statically indeterminate structures
Content- Equilibrium, reactions, static determinacy

- Arches and cables
- Elastic trusses
- Influence lines
- Basics of continuum mechanics
- Stresses in elastic beams
- Deformations in Euler-Bernoulli and Timoshenko beams
- Energy theorems
- Statically indeterminate systems (Force method)
