Introductory concepts, equilibrium and compatibility, statical determinacy; compatibility of deformations, flexibility method applied to simple flexural systems; analysis of beams (flexure, shear, thin-walled sections); compression members, strain energy and related theorems. Analysis of beams (asymmetrical bending); simple plastic theory (hinges, mechanism, equilibrium diagram method, redistribution of bending moments, moment capacity, fundamental theorems of plastic collapse), approximate methods of analysis; influence lines for statically determinate systems.
