CVE 440 Advanced Structural Analysis

Spring Semester

This course builds upon the material covered in CVE 340  to develop a better understanding of structural behavior.   Matrix analysis methods, including an introduction to finite elements, are developed as the basis for modern, computer-based structural analysis.  These and other advanced analytical techniques are used to analyze and design trusses, beams, and frames.  Coursework involves extensive use of the computer as an analytical tool.  Students are engaged in more advanced state-of-the-art structural engineering analysis and design software and Computer Aided Drafting (CAD). Prerequisite: CVE 340 

3 credit hours
