Theory of Structures

Course Objective

To impart knowledge on analysis of statically determinate structures.

Course Outcomes

Students be able to:

  1. Identify statical determinacy of structures.
  2. Analyze statically determinate structures using basic principle of equilibrium.
  3. Evaluate effect of load on statically determinate structures through shear force diagrams, bending moment diagrams, deflection and influence lines.


This course covers topics related to analysis of statically determinate structures (such as beams, plane frames, plane trusses, cables, three hinged arches) and analysis of influence lines.
