The purpose of this paper is to show that the analysis of trusses (and hence that of bridges) can be effectively carried out using the three concepts of Basic Electric Circuit Analysis, namely, the Superposition Theorem, Kirchhoff's Current Law and the Cut-set method. The curricular effect of this study is the improvement of multidisciplinary engineering education by relating the sophomore courses of Statics and Circuits and putting the courses under one common analysis framework.
