CE202- Structural Analysis
TRUSS ANALYSIS: Analysis of determinate trussMethods of joints and sections Displacement response of statically determinate structural systems using energy methods: Elastic theorems and energy principles – strain energy due to axial load, bending moment, shear and torsion – strain energy method, Castigliano’s method for deflection
Principle of virtual work – Unit load method-Betti‟s theorem – Maxwell‟s law of reciprocal deflections – principle of least work – application of unit load method and strain energy method for determination of deflection of statically determinate beams, frames – pin jointed trusses – temperature effects, lack of fit. Statically indeterminate structures: Degree of static and kinematic indeterminacies – force and displacement method.
FIRST INTERNAL EXAM
Strain Energy methods: Analysis of beams, frames and trusses with internal and external redundancy – effect of prestrain, lack of fit, temperature changes, support settlement. Method of Consistent deformations: Analysis of beams frames and trusses with internal and external redundancy – effect of prestrain, lack of fit, temperature changes, support settlement.
Moving loads and influence lines. Introduction to moving loads – concept of influence lines – influence lines for reaction, shear force and bending moment in simply supported beams and over hanging beams – influence lines for forces in beams and trusses analysis for and trusses analysis for different types of moving loads – single concentrated load – several concentrated loads uniformly distributed load shorter and longer than the span.
SECOND INTERNAL EXAM
Statically determinate suspension bridges and arches Analysis of forces in cables – temperature effects – suspension bridges with three hinged stiffening girders
Statically indeterminate suspension bridges and arches.- theory of arches – Eddy’s theorem – analysis of three hinged arches-suspension bridges with two hinged stiffening girders – analysis of two hinged arches – settlement and temperature effects.
