Learning outcomes of course "1-Statics of construction"

- The student is able formulate the basic principles and concepts in a correct manner for the various theoretical calculation methods. Example: the student can explain concepts such as isostatic, hyperstatic, creep,..BE3/BK-K3
- The student can explain the discussed calculation methods by building a logical argument. Example: the student can prove mathematical theorems conclusively. Here, the explanations and statements used show that it is understood "why" a certain equation/formula/reasoning is applied. BE2/BK-K3
- The student acquires the necessary understanding of load remittance and deformations of a 2D structure. By a proper identification of the problem, the student is able to choose the correct calculation method, taking into account the material from which the structure is built. The student can justify this choice with sound arguments. He can explain in simple numerical problems, analogous to seen examples, the calculation method and illustrate his/her understanding. BE2 / BK-K3; BE3 / BK-K3
- The student's written communication during the exam is meticulous and structured with clear schemes and sketches. BE2 / BK-K3
