CE1302 STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS – CLASSICAL METHODS 3 1 0 100

OBJECTIVE
The members of a structure are subjected to internal forces like axial forces, shearing forces, bending and torsional moments while transferring the loads acting on it. Structural analysis deals with analysing these internal forces in the members of the structures. At the end of this course students will be conversant with classical method of analysis.

1. DEFLECTION OF DETERMINATE STRUCTURES 9
Principles of virtual work for deflections – Deflections of pin-jointed plane frames and rigid plane frames – Willot diagram - Mohr’s correction

2. MOVING LOADS AND INFLUENCE LINES 9
(DETERMINATE & INDETERMINATE STRUCTURES)
Influence lines for reactions in statically determinate structures – influence lines for members forces in pin-jointed frames – Influence lines for shear force and bending moment in beam sections – Calculation of critical stress resultants due to concentrated and distributed moving loads.
Muller Breslau’s principle – Influence lines for continuous beams and single storey rigid frames – Indirect model analysis for influence lines of indeterminate structures – Beggs deformeter

3. ARCHES 9
Arches as structural forms – Examples of arch structures – Types of arches – Analysis of three hinged, two hinged and fixed arches, parabolic and circular arches – Settlement and temperature effects.

4. SLOPE DEFLECTION METHOD 9
Continuous beams and rigid frames (with and without sway) – Symmetry and antisymmetry – Simplification for hinged end – Support displacements.

5. MOMENT DISTRIBUTION METHOD 9
Distribution and carry over of moments – Stiffness and carry over factors – Analysis of continuous beams – Plane rigid frames with and without sway – Naylor’s simplification.
