Course detail

Structural Mechanics I

FA-1M1CompulsoryBachelor's (1st cycle)Acad. year: 2010/2011Winter semester1. year of study3  credits

Acquaints the students with the theoretical foundations of structural mechanics, the understanding of which leads to the knowledge of static action of and strain in the supporting elements of building structures. For an architect, the knowledge of the fundamental laws of structural mechanics is indispensable, since it is the modern logic basis of the most important stage of his work, i.e. the formulation of the concept. The subject is conceived in the spirit of the common principles of structural analysis, completed with examples of practical application.

Planned learning activities and teaching methods

Teaching methods depend on the type of course unit as specified in the article 7 of BUT Rules for Studies and Examinations.

Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes

Conditions to conferment inclusion consist in active graduation exercising and elaboration native washing. Examination is combination, i. e. written part , containing numerical instances go through in exercisings and theoretic test from lectures. On the instant follows mouth talk,evaluation and conferment punctual evaluation. Students enter on clerkish terms distributively about of the number of maximum 20, terms extracts guarantee.
