ARCH 3324. STRUCTURES I. 3 Hours.

This course is the foundation for all advanced structures courses in the undergraduate and graduate architecture programs. In an engineering curriculum, this course is offered in two separate courses referred to as: (a) Statics and (b) Strength of Materials, each of one-semester duration. the present course capsules the information yet is rigorous enough and covers all important topics in the two engineering courses including equilibrium of particles and rigid bodies, analysis of important structural load bearing items such as cables, beams and Trusses, Definition of Stress and strain and their role in structural design, cross-sectional properties of structural members and analysis of strength for the beams. Prerequisite: ARCH 3323, PHYS 1441 or PHYS 1443, MATH 1327 or MATH 1426. Junior standing in program. Restricted to Architecture majors. Minimum 2.8 GPAs both cumulative and within the major required.
