Structural analysis-I

Por: Swayam . en: ,


This is an elementary course on Structural Analysis. Various methods and their underlying mechanics in determining response of structures when subjected to external agitation will be discussed in this course. This course is comprehensive at the basic level. Journey through this course will help students to build the foundation for more advanced courses related to structural engineering.
