Class Objectives
/Class Outline
This class focuses on beam-column and bar theories which are used for idealization of building structures. The objective of this class is to understand the analysis method of stress and deformation of statically indeterminate structures. 
Class Schedule Lesson 1: Introduction
Lesson 2~4: Force method and Stiffness method
Lesson 5~10: Slope-deflection method
Lesson 11: Mid-term test
Lesson 12~16: Moment distribution method
Lesson 17~19: D value method
Lesson 20: Mid-term test
Lesson 21~24: Principle of virtual work
Lesson 25~27:Statically indeterminate truss
Lesson 28~29:Plastic analysis and limit theorem
Lesson 30: Final test

This class is divided into three parts. An examination is given at the end of every part.

Suggestions on
Preparation and
The instructions will be given in each lecture. 
Requirements (1) This class is composed of lecture and practice.
(2) Students should study “Architectural Structural Mechanics I” before taking this class.
(3) This subject is necessary to learn building structure and useful to understand other subjects related to architectural engineering. 
Grading Method No less than 60 points out of 100 for the examinations.
The ratios of points to each examination are as follows.
First intermediate examination : Second intermediate examination : Final examination = 1:1:1 
Practical Experience Experienced  
Summary of Practical Experience and Class Contents based on it The professor who worked in a general construction company and studied structural problems of buildings explains using the actual examples. 
Message Students should do many exercises in order to understand relationship between the shape of structure, external force, stress diagram and deformation. 
Please fill in the class improvement questionnaire which is carried out on all classes.
Instructors will reflect on your feedback and utilize the information for improving their teaching.
