AE 3023 - Advanced Structural Analysis

3 lecture hours 2 lab hours 4 credits
This course provides architectural engineering and civil engineering students theory and application of computerized structural analysis, with an emphasis on developing an understanding of structural behavior. The course also includes an introduction to building code provisions related to structure loading. The laboratory component allows the architectural engineering and civil engineering student to study structural components analytically and then verify their behavior through tests using principles from experimental stress analysis. Test evaluations are based on measurements of strains and deflections at varying load levels. Experiments include evaluation of a rod subjected to axial tension, stress concentrations, evaluation of a beam in flexure, evaluation of a rod in torsion, evaluation of a slender column under a compressive force, evaluation of a full scale open web steel joist and subjecting a steel beam being loaded to its plastic moment capacity. (prereq: AE 3011 )
