**Structural
Analysis
**is the branch which involves in the determination of behaviour of structures such
as Buildings, Bridges, Dams, Towers,
Offshore Platforms, Retaining Walls,
Truss, Foundations and Stadiums. The concepts of Statics provide basis for
solutions to the structures. Computer software are also being used for the calculation
of forces,
bending moment, stress,
strain and deformation or
deflection for complex
structural systems. Sophisticated
equipments
are
also used for investigating the structural response under
different types of loading. Basic concepts of
applied
mechanics are essential before structural analysis. Structural
analysis provides the basis for structural design.
A structure can be statically determinate or
indeterminate.
**Statically determinate structures**
A structure is termed as statically determinate if all of its unknown forces can
be determined by using only the equations of
static equilibrium.
For example simply supported beam, cantilever etc.
