Summary

The students are familiarized with the computation of displacement of statically determined structures using virtual forces in this subject. The computation of statically indetermined beams, frames and trusses using force and subsequently stiffness method is introduced and practiced next. Students also learn how to determine the degree static and deformation indeterminacy. The basic knowledge necessary to solve the planar task, subsoil models and dynamics for civil engineers s are provided as well. Students also gain skills to solve planar frames, slabs and walls using suitable software. The practices are conducted in PC labs.
