CEME 3001 - Computer Analysis of Structures and Structural Dynamics

North Terrace Campus - Semester 1 - 2021

The objective of this course is to make students aware of the concepts used in 1) computer aided analysis of structures and 2) dynamic analysis of structures. Computer aided analysis topics include: basic theory and formulation of matrix method of analysis based on stiffness approach; and application of these theories to linear analysis of 2D/3D trusses, frames and grillage. Students will use commercial software as well as develop their own computer program to analyse different structures. Dynamic analysis the topics include: basic theories of free and forced vibration of structures idealised as single and multiple degree-of-freedom problems with and without consideration of damping; application of these theories to dynamic analysis of different structures; and response spectra.
