AR6201 Mechanics of Structures - 1

OBJECTIVES: 
 To enable a student to understand the effect of action of forces on a body and the 
concept of equilibrium of the body through exercises. 
 To determine the internal forces induced in truss members due to external loads by 
working out problems. 
 To calculate the sectional properties (centroid, moment of inertia, section modulus and 
radius of gyration) for various sections by working out problems. 
 To study the stress – strain behaviors of steel and concrete due to axial loads and to 
determine the stresses and strains developed in solids due to external action through 
select problems. 
 To derive the relationship between elastic constants and solving problems.
