Module: The Statics in Architectural Structures

The Statics in Architectural Structures video series is an 8-part introduction to the fundamental mathematics and science behind architectural structures.  The series will trace the history of the foundations of statics from its roots in Galileo and Newton, through the Industrial Revolution, to current theories of structure.  Students will learn about geometric, mathematical, scientific and technological advances the field, and learn how to apply the theories to actual problems.  At the end of each video, a short quiz will be given to test the student’s understanding of the subject matter.  [Professor Phillip Anzalone]
