Course Objective

To provide the modern civil engineering student with practical training in structural engineering computer methods so that the student can both use the programs as they stand and modify them to achieve special needs. The second objective of the course is to provide a useful collection of structural engineering programs and to have each supported by the relevant theory so that all who use them will be fully aware of the underlying assumptions.

Course Content

The components of a computer system. Operating systems. Advanced FORTRAN programming. Finite-difference solution of differential equations. Introduction to finite element method and computer programs. Applications for structural mechanics problems. Utilization of package programs in modeling of structures. Three dimensional building analysis programs.
