Obtaining knowledge of principals of calculating statically determined and statically indeterminate linear systems, spatial girders, surface slabs, basic concepts of stability and structural dynamics. Acquiring the knowledge required for the selection of optimal structural system in accordance with an architectural object.
The course supplies basic knowledge of analysis and calculation of linear structures, surface slabs, stability and dynamics of structures. Acquired knowledge is used in specialized courses that follow, as well as in professional engineering practice. Competence of for the selection of optimal structural system in accordance with an architectural object.
Basics of technical theory of rod bending. Linear girders in plane. The energy stances. Statically determined girders: cantilever, simply supported beam, overhanging beam, Gerber girder, three joint arch. Statically determined truss girders. Displacements of truss nodes. Displacements of girders. Statically indeterminate girders. Force method. Unilateral and bilateral wedged beam. Two joint arch. Fixed arch. Continuous girders. Statically indeterminate truss girders. Spatial girders. Computer usage in Theory of structures. Surface slabs: plates, walls, shells. Basic concepts of elastic stability of linear structures. Introduction to structural dynamics: free and forced vibrations. Fundamentals of earthquake engineering. The meaning of structural system. Overview of the evolution of structural systems. Classification of structural systems. Basic principles of building. Load capacity. Stability. Serviceability. Durability. Principles of structural system selection. Building-structure relationship.
