Not aplicable

Developing skills for solving problems on statics of particles and rigid bodies at rest in line with the current civil engineering applications.

1.Introduction to vectorial mechanics. 2.Applied Statics: loading systems; support conditions; structural systems. 3.Concept and properties of hinges, pistons and slides. 4.Equilibrium of isostatic structures: support reactions, free-body diagrams and internal forces. 5.Plane trusses: stability and determinacy, methods to determine axial forces. 6.Cables. 7. Three hinged arches. 8. Mass geometry

Evaluation Methodology
The assessment consists of a written test: frequency, exam or appeal exam.
The written test will have a classification of 20 values.
The student will be approved if he obtains 10 or more values in these written tests.
