Previous knowledge expected


Objective (expected results of study and acquired competences)

The reaction of loads on structural elements will be introduced.

The interaction of the internal forces with the external loading will be discussed and the ilustration of the internal force functions on systems will be shown. With this concepts the student should be able to solve static systems with several support conditions. Additionally truss systems are considered at the end of the course.
