**CE2351 STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS – II**

# How to study this subject

**OBJECTIVE**

This course is in continuation of Structural Analysis – Classical Methods. Here in advanced

method of analysis like Matrix method and Plastic Analysis are covered. Advanced topics such

as FE method and Space Structures are covered.

**UNIT I FLEXIBILITY METHOD 12**

Equilibrium and compatibility – Determinate vs Indeterminate structures – Indeterminacy -

Primary structure – Compatibility conditions – Analysis of indeterminate pin-jointed plane

frames, continuous beams, rigid jointed plane frames (with redundancy restricted to two).

**UNIT II STIFFNESS MATRIX METHOD 12**

Element and global stiffness matrices – Analysis of continuous beams – Co-ordinate

transformations – Rotation matrix – Transformations of stiffness matrices, load vectors and

displacements vectors – Analysis of pin-jointed plane frames and rigid frames( with redundancy

vertical to two)

**UNIT III FINITE ELEMENT METHOD 12**

Introduction – Discretisation of a structure – Displacement functions – Truss element – Beam

element – Plane stress and plane strain - Triangular elements

**UNIT IV PLASTIC ANALYSIS OF STRUCTURES 12**

Statically indeterminate axial problems – Beams in pure bending – Plastic moment of resistance

– Plastic modulus – Shape factor – Load factor – Plastic hinge and mechanism – Plastic

analysis of indeterminate beams and frames – Upper and lower bound theorems 53

**UNIT V SPACE AND CABLE STRUCTURES 12**

Analysis of Space trusses using method of tension coefficients – Beams curved in plan

Suspension cables – suspension bridges with two and three hinged stiffening girders

**TOTAL: 60 PERIODS**
