Nottingham Trent University

Advanced Structural Analysis (15 HE credits)

Students investigate the degree of kinematic and static indeterminacy of framed structures; linear elastic behaviour of structures (matrix structural analysis of framed structures using stiffness method); non linear behaviour of structures (material non-linearity): plastic analysis of framed structures; non linear behaviour of structures (geometric non-linearity): critical loads and buckling modes of framed structures; structural dynamics: calculation of natural frequencies of framed structures and the response to harmonic and transient loads; and elastic and plastic analysis of plates: elastic solution of plates with various loading and boundary conditions using analytical and numerical methods.
