Basic concepts and assumptions of structural analysis, including statical and geometric redundancy. Analysis, by integration of deformation of simple structural members. Virtual work method for the analysis of deformations of simple structural systems such as articulate beams, trusses, frames, and arches. Method of forces to analyze statically indeterminate systems, method of displacements to analyze geometrically indeterminate systems, and symmetry and antisymmetry in structural analysis. Uses computer programs for structural analysis.
