Introduction to Structural Systems free online course will teach you about the structural properties and the forces that act on objects. You will learn about how the different components of a building are arranged in order to make it stable and durable. You will gain an understanding of the importance of selecting the proper materials for a structure. This course will also teach you about different structural systems and their properties.

This course begins by introducing you to the basic structural properties, the force and moment that acts on structures as well as the types of loads, stress, and strain. You will then learn about the requirements for a structure such as having static equilibrium, strength and rigidity. You will also learn about structural arrangements, structural forms and shapes as well as structural materials. Furthermore, you will learn about the classifications of basic forms of structure and types of tensile, temporary and compressive structures.

This free online course will increase your understanding of structural systems, their components, how they are being used and their advantages and disadvantages. You will learn about how tensile structures differ from compressive structures and how temporary structures are important for support.
