This course site features lecture notes, as well as a downloadable version of Analysis of Structural Member Systems, a classic textbook written by Prof. Jerome Connor.
This course uses computer-based methods for the analysis of large-scale structural systems. Topics covered include: modeling strategies for complex structures; application to tall buildings, cable-stayed bridges, and tension structures; introduction to the theory of active structural control; design of classical feedback control systems for civil structures; and simulation studies using customized computer software.
