Advanced Structural Analysis (Civ-B1, Str-A4) - Solutions & Help
Your credible resource for help with your civil exams.
Next Technical Exam Sitting:
May 11-15 December 7-11, 2020
Since the May 2020 exam has been cancelled, this is a predicted date for the December exams. Another exam period may be added in between, depending on the progress of the pandemic.
COVID-19 Update: Technical exams scheduled from May 11-15 have been cancelled at all locations in Canada and overseas due to COVID-19. You can see the original info on PEO website (who established the exams for all regions in Canada).
In the meantime, if you're able to channel all this excess energy from social distancing into studying, we would be happy to help you with this process. Since our technical exam help gives you access for 12 months, you'll be covered for the December sitting and any additional sittings added in between (if applicable). We'll also provide you with a free extension if the December sitting has to be cancelled too. Contact us with any questions.
Your exam is fast approaching. You might be working a job and have a family that needs your time. The last thing you want to do is spend $1,000 on a course to re-learn this material.
If that sounds like you, our Civ-B1 (Str-A4) help is for you.
About: The Advanced Structural Analysis exam is written nationally for civil/structural engineers. The code for this exam is:
- Civil - 16-Civ-B1 (or you may see it like YY-Civ-B1, Civ-B1)
- Structural - 07-Str-A4 (or YY-Str-A4, Str-A4)
The exam tests candidate’s understanding and knowledge of structural analysis, through stability, determinacy, methods of analyzing statically and kinetically indeterminate structures, concept of bending and shear and thereby bending and shear diagrams and influence line diagrams.
Format: 3-hour long, closed book exam. Out of the eight questions that are asked in the exam, only six needs to be attempted (choice is given among limited/specified problems).
Dates written: The exam is offered twice every year in the months of May and December.
Approved aids: Since the course is highly computational, an approved scientific calculator is permitted.
Arshia Mousavi, Msc, works as civil and structural engineering researcher and assistant at Queen’s University and is currently active in diagnosis, analysis for e.g. punching shear and bonding behavior and retrofitting design of different types of structures such as fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) and reinforced concrete (RC) structures in ordinary, fire or severe conditions, in developing new testing setups. He has dedicated experience in civil and structural engineering. He has worked both in design and construction firms as well as laboratory.
