Course Aim
You should be able to apply:
• Critical load
• Second order theory for frames
You should know:
• Plates
You should understand
• Torsion

Frames are analyzed with second order theory. Both critical load and stress solutions are calculated.
For plates general equations are established and some analytical solutions demonstrated.
Torsion for non-circular shaft is studied.
Computer exercise: A Matlab-script for frames with second order theory is developed.

There will be lectures, exercises and demonstrations. Computer exercise is compulsory.

Written exam with graded marks (U, 3, 4, 5)
Completed assignments and computer exercise
