Structural Mechanics 2

This is the study programme for 2019/2020. It is subject to change.


The course will introduce methods for analysis of statically indeterminate structures, as well as structures exhibiting a non-linear behaviour.

Learning outcome

The course is to introduce methods for analysis of statically indeterminate structures, as well as to introduce basics of the theory of plasticity. Upon completing the course, the student shall:
  • Be familiar with the linear and non-linear structural analysis
  • Be able to calculate, draw and use influence lines for statically determinate structures
  • Be able to calculate displacements of a statically determinate structure by using the unit load method
  • Be able to calculate stress resultants in statically undeterminate trusses, beams and frames by using the unit load method
  • Be able to calculate stress resultants in statically undeterminate beams and frames by using the moment distribution method
  • Be familiar with the plastic capacity and plastic mechanisms for trusses, beams and frames
  • Be familiar with the second order deflection theory and buckling of columns, beams and frames
