Main teaching disciplines at the Chair for Theory of Structures and Computational Analysis are classical and matrix methods for static and dynamic calculation of structural systems. Special attention is given to the numerical modelling of real engineering structures by using the latest software packages in the world. The Chair also gives courses in informatics, programming languages, numerical methods in Civil Engineering and application of software programs for structural analysis.


Within the educational process which is being carried out at the Faculty of Civil Engineering, the Chair of Structural Analysis participates in large number of courses in the first and second cycle of studies, as well as with a course at the Architectural Faculty in Skopje.

In the undergraduate studies the following courses are being given:

  • Theory of structures I;
  • Computer applications in civil engineering;
  • Computer applications in geodesy;
  • CAD software;
  • Theory of structures II;
  • Computational methods in Civil Engineering;
  • Masonry Structures;
  • Theory of Structures (ARcH faculty).
In the postgraduate studies the Chair teaches the following courses:
  • Structural dynamics;
  • Theory of Plates and Shells;
  • Computational methods in Civil Engineering;
  • Basics of seismic design;
  • Seismic design of buildings;
  • Seismic design of engineering structures;
  • Finite element method;
  • Computational modelling;
  • Nonlinear structural analysis;
  • Structural optimization;
  • Universal use of the finite element method;
  • Earthquake risk assessment and protection measures;
  • Masonry structures.

 

In certain periods of time, the Chair members gave courses in educational programmes in other faculties, like:

  • Statics of Architectural Structures, at Faculty of Architecture at University "Ss. Cyril and Methodius";
  • Informatics, at Faculty of Forestry at University "Ss. Cyril and Methodius".

 

Particular serious approach to science and educational process, the Chair devotes to international cooperation with other Universities in neighbouring countries and Europe. In this point of view several scientific and research stays have been realized.
The Chair also participates in the work of several national scientific and research projects, as well as in international projects (PROHITECH-earthquake PROtection of HIstorical buildings by reversible mixed TECHnologies), Sixth Framework Programme -FP6), to name but a few.

The obtained knowledge is regularly published by the members of the Chair at national and international congresses, conferences, symposia and workshops.
In the framework of its educational activity, the Chair organizes and holds presentations and summer schools for different topics in structural analysis and design of structures.

 

Research areas in the scientific - research activities

  • Building structures in seismic areas;
  • Reinforced concrete arch dams and stability;
  • Optimization and homogenization of structures;
  • Nonlinear structural analysis;
  • Structural analysis of structures under fire;
  • Historical and Masonry structures;
  • Structural Health Monitoring;
  • System Identification by Ambient vibration tests

 

 

The Chair is supported by state of the art software programs for solving even the most complex aspects from analysis of the behaviour of structures, like:

SOFiSTiK
Robot Millennium, Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis
SAP2000
Fedra
IDARC2D
3D Macro
LimitState:RING
Matlab
Artemis Modal
ANSYS
Abaqus
Scada Pro

 

The applicative use of the scientific knowledge is being realized by each member of the Chair with good cooperation with the former members of the Chair in every stage of analysis, design and revision of the technical projects.
The teaching staff, scientific knowledge, strong software support, equipment and the experience of the members is guarantee for intensive dynamic development of the Chair in the future, which represents basic prerequisite for successful education of the students.
