CE403 (Version: 2023 2) COURSE DETAILS


COURSE TITLE EFF YEAR EFF TERM DEPARTMENT CREDIT HOURS
CE403 STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS 2023 2 Civil and Mechanical Engineering 3.0 (BS=0.0, ET=3.0, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
This course addresses the analysis of basic structural forms such as beams, trusses, and frames, which are found in bridges and buildings. Classical deflection techniques such as direct integration and virtual work; and indeterminate analysis techniques such as the force method and displacement method (specifically direct stiffness) are used to determine forces and deflections in elastic structures. Structural analysis computer programs are introduced and directly applied in the solution of graded analysis.
LESSONS: 35 @ 55 min (2.188 Att/wk) LABS: 5 @ 55 min
SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS:
One half-day field trip. Compensatory time provided.

COURSE TITLE EFF YEAR EFF TERM DEPARTMENT CREDIT HOURS
CE403 STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS 2006 2 Civil and Mechanical Engineering 3.0 (BS=0.0, ET=3.0, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
This course addresses the analysis and design of basic structural forms such as beams, trusses, and frames, which are found in bridges and buildings. Classical deflection techniques such as direct integration and virtual work; and indeterminate analysis techniques such as the force method and displacement methods (slope deflection, direct stiffness and moment distribution) are used to determine forces and deflections in elastic structures. Structural analysis computer programs are introduced and directly applied in the solution of graded analysis and design problems. Approximate analysis techniques are used to check the general accuracy of computer-based results.
LESSONS: 40 @ 55 min (2.500 Att/wk) LABS: 0 @ 0 min
SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS:
Two Engineer Analysis problems. Compensatory time is provided. One half-day field trip.
