LEARNING OUTCOME
LO1 – LO8
REQUIRED OUTPUT
Problem Sets (Plates)
DUE DATE
See Learning Plan Schedule
Plates are composed of problem sets which are the supplementary activities for the students to
apply the theory, principles and tools of determinate structures in various problems. To help the
students appreciate the relevance of the analysis of determinate structures in real world problems.
Some problems may represent ideal real structures. Collaborative work in plates is not discouraged
but each student should complete the plates individually.
Plates of each topic must be submitted before its respective Long Quiz.
Plate No. 1 (LO1-LO2) Determinacy and Stability/Application of the Equation of
equilibrium
Plate No. 2 (LO3) Analysis of Trusses
Plate No. 3 (LO3) Shear and Moment Functions &amp; Diagrams: Beams &amp;
Frames
Plate No. 4( LO4) Cables and Arches
Plate No. 5 (LO5) Influence Lines
Plate No. 6 (LO3-LO4)Approximate Method: Trusses, Beams &amp; Frames
