Structural Mechanics I is an academic discipline, through which students acquire basic knowledge and skills for calculating cross-section forces, determining lines of influence of the respective dimensions and displacements in planar structures.

Methods for studying a statically determinable system are learned throughout the academic course.

Suitable case studies are dealt with during the practical exercises, and thus the subject matter introduced during lectures is widely illustrated. Students acquire skills to solve most commonly occurring problems through individual way of problem-solving assigned course tasks.

Knowledge gained while studying Structural Mechanics I is at the very core of learning the following academic subjects: Structural Mechanics II (indeterminate systems), Reinforced-concrete, Steel and Wooden structures.

The course assignments are to explore the following static schemes:
Course task №1 – single-discus structure - cross-section forces originating by external load applied.
Course task №2 – single-discus structure - influence lines for support reactions and internal forces.
Course task №3 – three-joint framework - internal forces generated by the external load.
Course task №4 – Gerber hinged beams - internal forces generated by the external load.
Course task №5 – statically determinate structure - truss efforts from external load.
Course task №6 – statically determinate structure - influence lines for efforts in the truss rods.
Course task №7 – calculating the displacement of systems tasks №№ 1,3 and 4 caused by external load.
