Description This unit will introduce students at postgraduate level to structural analysis of trusses, beams, frames and plates. It covers the slope defection method and matrix method for analysis of beams, trusses and frames, and the bending and buckling analysis of beams and plates under various loading conditions. The theories learned in classes will be reinforced in practical sessions by using computer software packages.

Students must be enrolled in a postgraduate program.
Students must have knowledge in engineering mathematics, engineering mechanics at intermediate level and structural analysis at fundamental level.
On successful completion of this subject, students should be able to:
- improve the skills to analyse beams and frames using the slope deflection method
- enhance the ability to use the matrix method to analyse complex structures
- analyse bending and buckling of beams and plates
- use software packages to analyse structures
Slope deflection method for beams and frames
Matrix method for statically indeterminate structures
Bending of beams and plates
Buckling of beams and plates
