Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will be able to deal with internal forces of simple static systems. They will be familiar with deformations and their significance in simple static systems, as well as methods for calculating them. They will be able to recognize statically indeterminate systems and calculate them using the principle of virtual work. Students will be familiar with computer programs for simple static problems (framework programs) and how to use them.
