### Course Description

The following topics are covered: external forces acted upon structures; properties of forces; sectional forces; stress and strain; displacement/deformation; cross sectional properties; calculation of displacement; buckling of column. Statically determinate structures are to be focused on.

### Grading

Grade is given based on the final examination, mid-term examination and assignments.

### Course Goals

To grasp the methods for studying structures at static equilibrium conditions; to understand stress and strain, and the relationship between them; to understand the buckling phenomenon in columns.
