Structural analysis 2 provides advanced topics based on methods introduced in structural analysis 1 to junior level students.  For detailed understandings of structural behaviors, the stiffness method is utilized throughout the class, and fundamentals of the computerized me-thod are presented.  Influence lines of statically indeterminate structures are evaluated using the Muller-Breslau principle based on the reciprocal theorem.  The stiffness method, which forms the backbone of structural analysis with the flexibility method, is formulated.  The moment distribution method that may be the most popular method until late 1970ís is pre-sented.  It is shown that the moment distribution method is equivalent to the slope deflection method except stiffness equations are solved by iterative methods.  The energy principles including the principle of virtual work and the principle of minimum potential energy are in-troduced together with the Rayleigh-Ritz method.  Finally, the matrix structural analysis is presented for computerized approaches.  Students who plan to pursue graduate study or pro-fessional career in the area of structural engineering should take this course.
