OBJECTIVE
This course is in continuation of Structural Analysis – Classical Methods. Here in advanced method of analysis like Matrix method and Plastic Analysis are covered. Advanced topics such as FE method and Space Structures are covered.
1. FLEXIBILITY METHOD FOR INDETERMINATE FRAMES 9
Equilibrium and compatibility – Determinate vs Indeterminate structures – Indeterminacy - Primary structure – Compatibility conditions – Analysis of indeterminate pin-jointed plane frames, continuous beams, rigid jointed plane frames (with redundancy restricted to two).

2. MATRIX STIFFNESS METHOD 9
Element and global stiffness matrices – Analysis of continuous beams – Co-ordinate transformations – Rotation matrix – Transformations of stiffness matrices, load vectors and displacements vectors – Analysis of pin-jointed plane frames and rigid frames.

3. FINITE ELEMENT METHOD 9
Introduction – Discretisation of a structure – Displacement functions – Truss element – Beam element – Plane stress and plane strain Triangular elements
4. PLASTIC ANALYSIS OF STRUCTURES 9
Statically indeterminate axial problems – Beams in pure bending – Plastic moment of resistance – Plastic modulus – Shape factor – Load factor – Plastic hinge and mechanism – Plastic analysis of indeterminate beams and frames – Upper and lower bound theorems
5. SPACE AND CABLE STRUCTURES 9
Analysis of Space trusses using method of tension coefficients – Beams curved in plan Suspension cables - cables with two and three hinged stiffening girders
