Matrix Method of Structural Analysis

ABOUT THE COURSE:

This is a second level course on structural analysis. Herein the concept of matrix method of structural analysis with application in various structural components will be discussed. This course will serve as a bridge between structural analysis 1 (the first course on structural analysis) and more advance topic such as finite element method (FEM).
