The course will focus on matrix implementations of the stiffness method for the analysis of statically indeterminate structures such as plane/space trusses and plane/space frames. Computational aspects of the stiffness method will be discussed with connections made to commercial software. Linear elastic analysis will be the primary focus, but topics in nonlinear analysis will also be introduced.

Course notes: 

This course may be used to satisfy the structural analysis requirement for the Structural Engineering focus area.
