The objective of this book is to develop an understanding of the basicprinciples of structural analysis. Emphasizing the intuitive classical ap-proach, Structural Analysis covers the analysis of statically determinateand indeterminate beams, trusses, and rigid frames. It also presents anintroduction to the matrix analysis of structures.
A Instructors Solution Manual in SI units is available on request for Structural Analysis, this book teaches students the basic principles of structural analysis using the classical approach. The chapters are presented in a logical order, moving from an introduction of the topic to an analysis of statically determinate beams, trusses and rigid frames, to the analysis of statistically indeterminate structures. The text includes solved problems to help illustrate the fundamental concepts.
Each chapter of the book begins with an introductory section de-?ning its objective and ends with a summary section outlining its salientfeatures. An important general feature of the book is the inclusion of step-by-step procedures for analysis to enable students to make an easiertransition from theory to problem solving. Numerous solved examplesare provided to illustrate the application of the fundamental concepts.
