- To identify the concepts of stress and strain and the relationship between them.
- To draw shear force and bending moment diagrams for various types of beam loadings.
- To apply the fundamentals of structural design based on stress and stiffness.
- To calculate deflections in statically determinate and indeterminate beams.
- To calculate stresses in statically determinate and indeterminate beams.
- To calculate stresses under combined loadings.
- To calculate critical load in columns.
