School of Civil Engineering,Henan University of Technology
Based on the concept of engineering education, supporting effect of structural mechanics to graduation requirements of civil engineering specialty is analyzed. In view of the course features of structural mechanics, teaching ideas of structural mechanics are designed in accordance of gold class standard. Take the course content of force method for solving statically indeterminate structure for example, many methods of case teaching method, heuristic teaching method, discussion teaching method and so on are adopted. First the statically indeterminate structure is introduced from project cases, then specific ideas and steps of solution with force method are discussed, finally the knowledge learned is applied to solve steel structure engineering problems of the stadium in Zhengzhou Olympic Sports Center, thus general engineering problems and complex engineering problems are all solved. The teaching process achieves good results, which provides references for teaching of other foundation engineering courses of engineering specialties.
