CE491 (Version: 2019 2) COURSE DETAILS


COURSE TITLE EFF YEAR EFF TERM DEPARTMENT CREDIT HOURS
CE491 ADV STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS 2019 2 Civil and Mechanical Engineering 3.0 (BS=0.0, ET=3.0, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
This course builds upon the material covered in CE403/453 to develop a better understanding of structural behavior. Two-dimensional analysis of trusses and frames is reviewed and extended into 3D. Matrix analysis methods, including an introduction to continuum finite elements are developed as the basis for modern computer-based structural analysis. An introduction to nonlinear analysis is presented. Coursework involves extensive use of the computer as an analytical tool. Students use state-of-the-art structural engineering analysis and design software.
LESSONS: 37 @ 55 min (2.310 Att/wk) LABS: 3 @ 55 min
SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS:
Graded homework is assigned to reinforce concepts covered in class.
