ARCH 5140 - Structures 1


Through in-class presentations, homework, exams, and worked problems, students will learn the basic principles of structural systems, when to apply them, and how they resist gravitational and lateral forces. In addition, students will learn the principles of statics and apply them to basic structural analyses of common structural elements. It is recognized that intuitions of building technologies are not acquired quickly but result from much study, observation, and practice. ARCH 5140 makes use of the approaches above to ensure that the beginning student is provided with a broad, solid base for future structural investigations.

This course is required of all first-year architecture graduate students in the M. Arch. program.                                        

When Offered: Fall term annually.

Co-Listed: ARCH 2330
