Student will be able to build an abstract model for structural engineering problem and to assess its restriction and quality. The student will be able to perform dimen-sion reduction in structural engineering using concepts from structural mechanics. They will be capable of classify different types of civil engineering structures and to distinguish different principal load transfer processes. The student can classify line-ar/nonlinear problems and time variant/invariant problems in structural engineering.
