## Topic outline

• ### General

In this course students will be introduced to the analysis of statically determinate and indeterminate structures. The course covers the fundamental concepts of determining the structural stability and determinacy, analysis of statically determinate beams and frames, trusses and arches.  Also to determine the deflection of beam and truss, and the analysis of indeterminate beams and frames.
