Matrix Method of Structural Analysis

Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur and NPTEL via Swayam


This is a second level course on structural analysis. Herein the concept of matrix method of structural analysis with application in various structural components will be discussed. This course will serve as a bridge between structural analysis 1 (the first course on structural analysis) and more advance topic such as finite element method (FEM).INTENDED AUDIENCE:Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering,Naval Architecture, Applied MechanicsPREREQUISITES:Solid Mechanics, Structural Analysis 1INDUSTRY SUPPORT: Any Civil, Mechanical and Aerospace company
