Course Description

This course develops further the structural principles introduced in Theory of Structures I. It deals with analysis of statically indeterminate elastic structures using slope-deflection methods and moment distribution. More emphasis is placed on the matrix methods of analyzing structures.


  • Enable students select an appropriate analysis method for beams, frames and trusses.
  • Enable students to recognise and analyse frames with/without sway using several methods.
  • Enhance student’s capacity to recognise and use computing and IT skills (in particular spreadsheets) in the analysis of structures.
