Outline and Purpose of the Course Practical understanding and application of the theory that have been learned in Structure mechanicsⅠand Exercises and Structure mechanicsⅡand Exercises.
To learn the measurement technique on strain, deflection and vibration in experiment, and the fundamentals/application on computer programming for matrix methods for structural analysis in computational exercise which are needed for understanding the mechanical properties of member and/or structure.
Course Goals To understand the fundamentals of measurement of strain, deflection and vibration
To deeply understand theory of structure mechanics by beam experiment
To understand numerical analysis approach of structures by use of matrix methods
To deeply and synthetically understand mechanical behaviors and validation methods of structures by comparing the experimental results with those resulted from matrix methods
