Sobre este curso

Omitir Sobre este curso

Buckling can be a controlling limit state for many structural elements.

This course will cover the intersection of buckling and member design – specifically the behavior of columns and beam elements.

Students will leave this course with an in-depth knowledge of governing differential equations for stability analysis of column and beam elements. This course is best suited for students with an undergraduate civil engineering background including a structural analysis course and will build on these concepts.

Students will learn from an awarded structural engineering researcher with over 20 years of experience in the field. Professor Varma focuses on teaching through exploring example problems and applications of fundamental concepts, encouraging his students to both understand the principles of structural stability and be able to apply these concepts in realistic design scenarios.
