UNIT 1 Determinate Structures
Determinate vs. Indeterminate structures, static indeterminacy, External and internal
indeterminacy, rules for determining degree of indeterminacy, Degree of Freedom Per Node,
Pin Jointed determinate space trusses, distinction between determinate and indeterminate space
trusses and simple and complex space trusses, Analysis of simple and determinate space trusses.
Method of Substitution and Method of tension coefficient.
UNIT 2 Deflection and Slope
Moment curvature relation, The elastic curve, Relation between Loading, SF, BM, Slope and
Deflection, Deflection and slopes of statically determinate beams by Double integration method,
Macaulay’s method, Area moment method. Basics of Conjugate beam method.
UNIT 3 Strain Energy
Strain energy due to axial load, bending, shear and torsion, Castigliano’s theorem for deflection,
Betti’s theorem – Maxwell’s law of reciprocal deflections, unit load and strain energy method for
determination of deflections of statically determinate beams – pin-joined trusses and rigid frames.
UNIT 4 Rolling Loads & Influence Lines
Introduction to Rolling loads – concept of influence lines – influence lines for reaction, shear force
and bending moment in simply supported beams – influence lines for forces in trusses – analysis
for different types of rolling loads – single concentrated load – several concentrated loads –
uniformly distributed load shorter and longer than the span, Absolute maximum bending moment.
UNIT 5 Cables, suspension bridges & arches
Analysis of forces in cables with concentrated and continuous loadings – suspension bridges with
three-hinged and two-hinged stiffening girders, Theory of arches – Eddy’s theorem – analysis of
three-hinged and two-hinged arches – settlement and temperature effects, moving load & influence
