ARC 214 - Architectural Statics

Class: 3 Lab: 0 Clinical: 0 Credits: 3

Prerequisites: Take All: ARC-111, ARC-112, and MAT-121
This course covers the concepts of elementary statics as applied to architecture. Topics include forces, resultants, and types of force system; equations of equilibrium; reactions of simple architectural structures; internal forces in architectural roof trusses; frames and beams; centroids and moments of inertia as applied to architecture. Upon completion, students should be able to solve problems which require the ability to analyze systems of forces in static equilibrium as applied to architectural forms.
