Structural Analysis (JEE332) is an intermediate unit that introduces students to the linearised, elastic analysis techniques required for the design of machines and structures used in maritime engineering projects. Building upon the knowledge gained in Introduction to Maritime Science, Engineering and Technology and Mechanics of Solids, the students are introduced to new theories and techniques required to make engineering decisions and calculations in the design of statically indeterminate structures. The knowledge gained in this unit will become the foundation for latter specialised structural analysis and design units of the Naval Architecture, Marine and Offshore Engineering and Ocean Engineering specialisations.

Please check that your computer meets the minimum System Requirements if you are attending via Distance/Off-Campus.
Units are offered in attending mode unless otherwise indicated (that is attendance is required at the campus identified).
