A study of forces and the effect of forces upon structural members in a state of equilibrium. It is the study of internal stresses and deformations that result when structural members are subjected to external forces through loading. While lectures, and some labs, deal mainly with the theory of force analysis and force systems solutions, laboratory projects involve the application of various stress and strain measuring instruments on many materials used in construction.
