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

Recommended prerequisites
