ELASTOPLASTIC STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS

Course objectives (capabilities pursued and learning results):

The main objective is the analysis and the design of frame structures with the theory of plasticity. For that, the lectures first concern the theory of plasticity in frame members. In the sequenl, the problem of the determination of the collapse mechanism for frame structures is studied. The problem of plastic design with min weight is also studied. Finally, the methods of plastic analysis with linear programming are studied and the students are also introduced to the matrix formulation of plastic analysis and plastic design problems. The results are the familiarization of students with the theory of plasticity and the comprehension of the methods of plastic analysis and plastic design of frame structures.
