Learning outcome

After completing this course the students will:
  • Be able to carry out stress and strain analyses of different load bearing elements and/or constructions
  • Understand the response of individual elements to the applied loads in both elastic and plastic regime and after unloading
  • Be able to dimension various elements of constructions subjected to a wide range of loading conditions
  • Be able to apply the knowledge on calculation of real constructions
