Structural Analysis and Design (MA030067)

(10/27/2021-12/21/2021)

Course Memo

The Structural analysis and Design course gives students basics of strength analysis and design of structural members. Theoretical sections include introductions into stress and strain theories, failure criteria, elasticity theory, nonlinear material behavior and analysis of tension, compression, bending and shear structural members. The students work with Abaqus software to develop simple finite element models validated by analytical solutions. Typical structural design problems are considered in the framework of course projects. Students welcome to propose the problem statements for the course projects in order to support their MS or PhD projects.
