Paper Description
This course is about the analysis of structures. Those enrolled in this paper are expected to have a foundation in engineering mechanics and the mechanics of materials, including, the ability to calculate: axial, bending and shear stresses, deflection due to loading, and buckling of members. This paper covers the analysis of statically determine and indeterminate structures. Methods of analysis will include energy methods, displacement methods, force and stiffness methods, and limit theory methods.

Students who successfully complete the course should be able to:
Assessment
Internal assessment will consist of tests, assignments, and lab write ups.
Purely numerical errors will not generally be penalised but unreasonably high/low values without any comments may be subject to some penalty. All work should be shown. Calculations and notes need to be legible and clear to follow. Lack of clarity in the answers, including absence of freebody diagrams may lead to a reduction in marks.
The assignments (if applicable) will be uploaded onto Moodle prior to the dates given on the lecture schedule. Lab sheets will be handed out at the labs.
Tests will be held in class during the lecture period, and unless otherwise noted will be closed book.
The Final Examination will be a closed book examination, and the topics covered will reflect the content of the whole courseAssessment Components
The internal assessment/exam ratio (as stated in the University Calendar) is 50:50. The final exam makes up 50% of the overall mark.
