Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Students are introduced to basics of the structural mechanics (statics) with focus on the determination of the reactions and internal forces on the statically determined structures (beams, arches, and trusses).

Summary

The course Building statics is focused on simple statically determined bearing structures, which consists in calculating the reactions in external supports and determining the internal forces using equilibrium conditions. Part of the lessons is the analysis of the force systems in the plane and the space and the fundamentals of the kinematics, which are necessary to achieve the desired immobility of the supporting structure.
