Course Objectives This course aims to introduce architectural students to elementary engineering concepts, design principles, and practices providing the background for detailed design courses. The student will be able to visualize the two and three-dimensional structural members under various external forces and other excitations.
Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Student will be able to analyze design problems related to statics and strength of materials by utilizing graphical methods.
  • Student will be able to relate form and structural forces.
  • Student will be able to classify structural systems used in architectural design.
  • Student will be able to identify loads effecting building components.
Course Description Scalar and vector quantities, resultant force, equilibrium of a particle, moment and force systems, free body diagrams, equilibrium of a rigid body, truss systems, internal forces in beams and columns, frictional forces. Stress and strain, mechanical properties of materials and Hooke’s law, factor of safety, area moment of inertia, axially loaded rods and beams and deformation of rods, axial force,
