Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Outline principle of unit force method and classify advantages and disadvantages at statically determinate also indeterminate structures. Define advantages of the unit force method for plane trusses (determinate and also indeterminate). Solve basal cross-section characteristics coupled torsion of straight beam necessary for warping computing . Classify basic boundary conditions of the coupled torsion of straight beam. Clarify essential matrix equation of buckling for systems discretized by FEM. Outline fundamental nonlinearities and methods for its solution in statics.
