Summary: The optimal construction project presents a compromise solution between the most convenient value of object function and constrain factors.The guarantee of strenght,stiffness,safety and workability of constraints,is of dominant importance.These factors determine the choice of materials and dimensions.Since all these factors depend on construction load,the structural analysis which comprises external load,the determination of stresses and strains as well as the safety of construction, presents the synthesis of the most important factors in optimal design. This project defines the methods and procedures for structural analysis of construction regarding the optimal project,which could enable the best efficiency of materials if a defined safety of construction in exploitation is ensured.The structural analysis is based on analytical and numerical methods.The most used method is the finite element method,and in some cases the finite volume method. In calculation,different influential factors of external load must be considered.In view of numerical solutions,the structural analysis is given by computer.

Keywords: geometrical member properties of transversal sections,shear stress,thin walled structures,numerical analysis, stiffness,computer,finite element method,strain,normal stress, external load,main stress,main strain

Research goals: Structural analysis is of prime importance in the phase of construction design and in the forming of optimal project.The expertness of stress and strain values in any point of construction,enables the compliance of strains relating to strenght and stiffness of construction as well as on its safety and workability.The main goals of this project are the establishment of methods and procedures for construction structural analysis.These methods comprise different strains which include static and dynamic influences,thermal influences and frictional mechanisms from the tribological point of view.This project work comprises the development of analytical and numerical methods with special emphasis on finite element method. Results are expected in the formulating of the most suitable methods for structural analysis,which in the methodics of construction could give results to ensure both optimal efficiency of the materials used and the safety and durability of constructions in exploitation.Numerical procedures of structural analysis,together with the given loads,make part of the computer programme.
