Building Mechanics and Structural Analysis II

Module name (EN):
Name of module in study programme. It should be precise and clear.
Building Mechanics and Structural Analysis II
Degree programme:
Study Programme with validity of corresponding study regulations containing this module.
Civil and structural engineering, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2017
Module code: BIBA435-17
The exam administration creates a SAP-Submodule-No for every exam type in every module. The SAP-Submodule-No is equal for the same module in different study programs.
Hours per semester week / Teaching method:
The count of hours per week is a combination of lecture (V for German Vorlesung), exercise (U for Übung), practice (P) oder project (PA). For example a course of the form 2V+2U has 2 hours of lecture and 2 hours of exercise per week.
4VU (4 hours per week)
ECTS credits:
European Credit Transfer System. Points for successful completion of a course. Each ECTS point represents a workload of 30 hours.
Semester: 4
Mandatory course: yes
Language of instruction:
Written exam

BIBA435-17 (P110-0022) Civil and structural engineering, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2017 , semester 4, mandatory course
Workload of student for successfully completing the course. Each ECTS credit represents 30 working hours. These are the combined effort of face-to-face time, post-processing the subject of the lecture, exercises and preparation for the exam.

The total workload is distributed on the semester (01.04.-30.09. during the summer term, 01.10.-31.03. during the winter term).
60 class hours (= 45 clock hours) over a 15-week period.
The total student study time is 150 hours (equivalent to 5 ECTS credits).
There are therefore 105 hours available for class preparation and follow-up work and exam preparation.
Recommended prerequisites (modules):
BIBA130-17 Engineering Mechanics I
BIBA250-17 Engineering Mechanics II
BIBA356 Structural Engineering

Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will be able to deal with internal forces of simple static systems. They will be familiar with deformations and their significance in simple static systems, as well as methods for calculating them. They will be able to recognize statically indeterminate systems and calculate them using the principle of virtual work. Students will be familiar with computer programs for simple static problems (framework programs) and how to use them.
