Palabras clave

Dimensioning, truss, static, dynamic


  • Course 1 and TD 1: Calculation of isostatic and hyperstatic lattices. Buckling.
  • Course 2 and TD 2: Small movements in vibration. Clean modes, free response and forced response.
  • Design office 1 and 2: Calculation of the coverage of a gymnasium (static sizing and dynamic analysis)

Learning Outcomes

  • Apply the concepts of structural statics to the design of a truss.
  • Apply the concepts of structural dynamics to the design of a truss.
  • Use digital calculation platforms (Matlab, Scilab) for the analysis of structures.
  • Report on the static and dynamic analysis of a structure.
