**Prerequisites:**

- CEE211 - Statics and Dynamics (strictly enforced)

**Catalog description:** Fundamental principles of solid and structural mechanics will
be presented. Application of the principles to civil engineering structures will be
emphasized. The course will further develop the concepts introduced in Statics and Dynamics
(CEE211). In particular, the notion of internal forces, and the concepts of stress and strain
will be introduced. Mechanical properties of solids will be discussed, and the notion of statical
indeterminacy will be introduced. The methods of structural analysis will be presented, including
those based on energy concepts.
