CE 121 Advanced Structural Analysis Fall Semester 2005, Elective Course, 3 units Catalog Description Theory and application of structural analysis. Stiffness and flexibility methods, with emphasis on the direct stiffness method. Equilibrium and compatibility. Virtual work. Response of linear and simple nonlinear structures to static loads. Use of computer programs for structural analysis. Modeling of two- and three-dimensional structures. Verification and interpretation of structural response. Prerequisites CE 120 Textbook and/or Other Required Material Filippou, Course reader with examples, Custom Text for Mathcad and Matlab, Prentice Hall Updates, homework, solutions: http://www.ce.berkeley.edu/~filippou/ce121.htm Course Objectives 1.
