DEGREE IN TECHNICAL ARCHITECTURE 
Subject context (201617)  
Basic Physics of Structures is a basic subject in the degree in Technical Architecture. This course aims firstly to revisit areas of mechanics which may have been covered in preuniversity Physics, and to build on this common base the principles of mechanics of solids on which many subsequent modules depend. This includes basic equilibrium, work and energy and the analysis of statically determinate frameworks, leading into a major section on the analysis of stress and strain in two and three dimensions, which includes material failure criteria. The architecture graduate should be able to use the relevant laws of kinematics and dynamics to solve problems of equilibrium of rigid bodies, trusses, and beams. What we do is show problematic situations (open problems relevant to the technical architecture student, both theoretical and practical situations) where we have to think about possible solutions doing research, and not necessarily requiring a numerical answer. This methodology facilitates the autonomy and responsability of the students, the interactivity teacherstudent and studentstudent, and shows the connection between physics and other areas of knowledge.
