## Specific course information

The course provides students the tools to combine, connect and support the several elements that constitute the mechanical characteristics of a structure. Based on the principles of solid mechanics, external equilibrium and energy theorems, the axial forces, shears, moments and deflections are calculated in structural elements subjected to the action of structural loads. After completing the course, the student will calculate the solution of framed structures to satisfy equilibrium conditions at nodes and elements of the structure.

## Specific goals of the course

##### Learning objectives:
• To define the static equilibrium of simple structures.
• To identify the source and effects of structural loads.
• To identify the concepts of stability and static determinacy of structures.
• To calculate the reactions in statically determinate structures.
• To calculate the axial forces in truss elements.
• To identify and calculate the internal forces in beams and frames.
• To calculate the axial force, shear and bending moments in statically determinate arcs.
• To calculate deflections due to axial force, shear, bending and torsion applying energy methods.
• To analyze hyperstatic structures by the force method
• To analyze hyperstatic structures by the method of slope-deflection.
