'Advanced Structural Analysis' is a course offered in the fifth semester of B. Tech. in Civil Engineering program at School of Engineering, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham.

Unit 1

Slope deflection method – application to the analysis of statically indeterminate beams with and without settlement of supports - rigid jointed plane frames with and without side sway - gable frames. Analysis of continuous beams - theorem of three moments. Sway and non-sway analysis by Moment distribution method and Kani’s method.

Unit 2

Approximate Methods of Analysis of Multistoried Frames: Analysis for vertical loads – substitute frames - loading conditions for maximum moments in beams and columns – portal method and cantilever method for lateral load analysis.

Unit 3

Matrix methods of structural analysis - stiffness and flexibility matrices for elements and structure - analysis of continuous beams, simple rigid jointed frames and plane trusses by stiffness and flexibility method. Introduction to FEM.
