CE-801 Advanced Structure Mechanics
Campus SCEE (NICE)
Programs PG
Session Spring Semester 2017
Course Title Advanced Structure Mechanics
Course Code CE-801
Credit Hours 3-0
Pre-Requisutes Nill
Course Objectives This course continues to present a unified approach to the study of the behavior of structural members and the development of design and failure criteria. The course treats each type of structural member in sufficient detail so that the resulting solutions are directly applicable to real-world problems. New examples for various types of member and a large number of new problems are included. To facilitate the transition from elementary mechanics of structure to advanced topics, a review of the elements of mechanics of structures is presented along with appropriate examples and problems
