ARC 221 - Concepts of Structure

3 CR

The course offers an introduction to the study, analysis, and mathematical solutions to architectural structures and the forces acting upon them. Topics covered include force vectors, moment and shear calculations, and the general stresses and strains on structure through an exploration of mechanical design principles and the mathematics related to them. Students will become aware of the deforming forces of tension, compression, shear, flexure, and torsion and their potential physical effects on building systems.

Prerequisite(s): MAT 112 .
Co-requisite(s): PHY 115  (lecture and lab), or permission of the Architecture program Coordinator.
