ARCH-631 Structures 1: Structure as Medium

3 Credits

This course introduces the fundamentals of structures including statics, strength, and stability of materials. Students are introduced to structural concepts, systems and the tracing of structural loads, using basic principles, physical modeling, theoretical and analytic methods. Topics include the interrelationship between strain, stress and stability, as well as the implications of tension, compression, shear, torsion and bending. (Pre-requisite is minimum three credits of college-level Physics or Calculus).
