Sobre este curso

Omitir Sobre este curso

Stability is a critical design limit state for structural members and systems.

This course will cover basic concepts in stability including methods to evaluate structural stability including bifurcation method and energy methods. Both small and large deformations will be assumed, and the effects of geometric imperfections will be investigated.

The differential equations governing the behavior of structural members will be discussed along with the design of steel rolled sections to torsional moment. The differential equations governing the stability behavior of structural members will be derived, and used to evaluate the buckling of columns with asymmetric, singly symmetric, and doubly symmetric cross-sections.

Students will leave this course with an in-depth knowledge of bifurcation buckling, stability, and methods of analysis. Students will also learn about governing differential equations for stability analysis and the buckling of different types of columns. 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.
