## Course content

The course will provide an introduction to some important topics in analysis of some key structural elements.  The beam equation, advanced stability analysis of beam-columns and Rigid frames.  Part 1 covers beams and buckling. Part 2 gives the students an introduction to vibration analysis of structural elements.

Part 1:

• Euler beam equation
• Euler buckling
• Simple frames
• Buckling of beam-columns
• Euler-Lagragne method for columns
• Imperfect columns
• Continuous columns

Part 2:

-Vibration of a system with a single degree of freedom

• Undamped free vibration  (Undamped and damped)
• Rayleigh Method
• Rotational freedom
• Forced vibration (Damped and undamped )

-Vibration isolation

-Vibration in continuous systems

• Lateral vibration of a cable
• Longitude vibration of a bar.
• Lateral vibration in an Euler beam
