“Teaching Learning Practices n Structural Analysis”

Five days Faculty Development Programon “Teaching Learning Practices in Structural Analysis” was organized by Department of Civil Engineering of Zeal college of Engineering and research during 6th to 10th June 2017.Total 35 participants from various engineering institutes and Zeal College of Engineering and Research had participated in this workshop.

The aim of this FDP is to shape up teaching learning practices and groom the faculty members about effective content delivery of structural analysis subjects. This program tenders topics like Fundamentals of physics and mechanics, Stress & strain evaluation determinate and indeterminate, Stress & strain evaluation in composite and homogeneous section, Shear and bending analysis, Analysis of indeterminate beam by Clapeyron theorem, strain energy and by Castiglianos theorem, Analysis of truss by Castiglianos 1st and 2nd theorems for lack of fit, sinking of support and temperature changes, Influence line diagrams and it’s analysis for beam & truss, Plastic analysis of steel structures, Finite difference and finite element method. This program also includes sessions related to insights of industry applications of structural analysis and software application.

Objectives:

  • To provide new insights and knowledge about the topic through close interactions/discussions with the senior Faculty Members and Experts of the respective field.
  • To study behavior and analysis of stress and strain acting on various structural members.
  • To understand industrial and software application of structural analysis.
  • To shape up teaching learning practices and grooms the faculty members about effective content delivery of structural analysis subjects.

Various experts from academic institutes and industries had contributed to this workshop by their able guidance. Following topics get covered in this workshop.

1. Fundamental concepts, stress strain evaluation and shear bending analysis by Dr. M. R. Wakchaure, Professor of Amrutwahini College of Engineering, Sangamner.

 

2. Analysis of  beams trusses by using different methods and theorems and ILD  by Dr. K. Gopi Krishna, Assistant Prof. NIT, Warangal

 

3. Plastic analysis of steel structures , Finite difference and finite element method  by  Dr. Sandeep Chaudhary, Associate Prof. IIT, Indore

 

4. Failure theories of Steel Beams/Column and Connections Torsional analysis of Beams and Analysis of Steel by  Dr. M. R.ShiyekarAdjunct Faculty Govt. College of Engineering, Karad

 

5. Software application of Structural Analysis  byEr. Prashant PatilDirector, Apex consultant, Pune

 

This faculty development program was inaugurated byDr. A. B. More, Executive Council Member, ISTE,Dr. A. M. Kate principal of ZCOER, Dr. M. R. Wakchaureprofessor of Amrutwahini College of Engineering, Sangamner,Dr. Walvekar P. P. conveyerhead of civil engineering department, MS. Patil S. S. coordinator of FDP and all participants.

The faculty development program started after the Inauguration ceremony all three sessions of the 1st day was conducted by Dr. M. R. Wakchaure, Professor of Amrutwahini College of Engineering Sangamner who discussed about fundamentals concepts of physics and mechanics, Stress & strain evaluation in different sections with realistic and interesting examples. After lunch in his last session he delivered information about shear and bending analysis with different easy method those students can understand easily.

On 2nd day of FDP, 1st session was on Analysis of beams with different support conditions , 2nd session was on Analysis of truss and 3rd session is on ILD for beams with numerical examples was delivered by Dr. K. Gopi Krishna, Assistant Prof. NIT, Warangal.

On 3rd day of FDP, 1st session was on Plastic analysis of steel structures,2nd and 3rd session was on Finite difference and element method was delivered by Dr. Sandeep Chaudhary, Associate Prof. IIT, Indore. In this session different numerical examples related to concept with images were discussed along with delivering techniques.

On 4th day of FDP 1st session was on failure theories of Steel Beams/Column, 2nd session was on Torsional analysis and 3rd session was Connections delivered by Dr. M R Shiyekar Adjunct Faculty Government College of Engineering, Karad. This session was graceful with different teaching methods and use of available teaching aids for better understanding of students.

5 th dayof this FDP was delivered by Er. Prashant Patil Director, Apex consultant, Pune. On this day there was discussion about Software application.In 2nd session participants practices on ANYSIS Software and analyze shear force bending moments on different components by preparing model of G + 4 building. FDP is ended with valedictory function in which Er. Prashant Patil expressed his feelings. Votes of thank speech is given by conveyer and coordinator.
