1. Introduction to structural mechanics. Basic concepts, principles and axioms. Coplanar and non-coplanar force systems.
2. Basic types of statically determinate beams. Structural form and idealisation, loading, supports and reactions. Static and kinematic determinacy of structures. Calculation of support reactions.
3. Types of internal forces. Beam equilibrium differential equations. Internal forces diagrams.
4. Statically determinate plane beams – simply supported, cantilever.
5. Statically determinate plane bent beams.
6. Statically determinate plane inclined beams.
7. Frame structures with internal pins.
8. Trusses and curved beams. Statically determinate beams with 3D loads, and bent beams in 3D.
9. Geometric properties of cross-sections. The parallel axis theorem. The radius of gyration and ellipse of second-order moments of the cross-section.
10. Basic concepts and assumptions of the linear elasticity and strength theory. Stress, displacement, deformation. Simple stresses in Civil Engineering – direct tension and compression.
