C&ENVENG 7061 - Computer Methods of Structural Analysis

North Terrace Campus - Semester 2 - 2015

The objective of this course is to provide students with a thorough understanding of the theory and application of computer methods of structural analysis including Matrix Methods of structural analysis and the Finite Element Method. Topics include analysis of two and three dimensional trusses and frames; basic concepts of elasticity; formulation of different finite elements for plane stress, plane strain, axisymmetric and plate bending problems. Students will develop their own computer program and will also use commercial software for analysing structures.
