First of a two-course sequence required of all civil engineering students. CIE 323 introduces students to the basic techniques for analyzing common structural elements, including beams, trusses, and frames. The course covers methods to analyze both statically determinate and indeterminate structural systems including force and moment diagrams, influence lines and calculation of deflections.
Focuses on the interactions of humans with tasks, equipment, and the environment as part of the workplace system. Students learn about human capabilities and limitations, applications of human factors/ergonomics principles to system design, methodologies for human-system analysis, and experimental design and data analysis applied to human factors problems.
