Analysis - IENG 738 - A1
This course first reviews the basics of matrix structure analysis including bar, 2D truss, beam, and 2D frame elements, and then introduces the fundamental concepts of finite element analysis (FEA) including domain discretization, element types, system matrix assembly, and numerical solution techniques. Application of FEA to conduct structural analysis is covered using commercial software, including both static and dynamic analysis. Case studies focus on wood structures. Computational design and digital fabrication are introduced through guest lectures and additional materials.
In this course, students learn the analysis of one or more aspects of wood or hybrid structures including the following: structural design; specific modern wood based, composite or hybrid materials; envelope design; building science; and sustainable design. The analysis focuses on environmental impact and energy efficiency. Students present the results of this analysis in the form of a case study.
