Structural Analysis SI Edition – Aslam Kassimali – 4th Edition


The objective of this book is to develop an understanding of the basic principles of structural analysis. Emphasizing the intuitive classical approach, Structural Analysis covers the analysis of statically determinate and indeterminate beams, trusses, and rigid frames. It also presents an introduction to the matrix analysis of structures. The book is divided into three parts. Part One presents a general introduction to the subject of structural engineering. It includes a chapter devoted entirely to the topic of loads because attention to this important topic is generally lacking in many civil engineering curricula.

Part Two, consisting of Chapters 3 through 10, covers the analysis of statically determinate beams, trusses, and rigid frames. The chapters on deflections (Chapters 6 and 7) are placed before those on influence lines (Chapters 8 and 9), so that influence lines for deflections can be included in the latter chapters. This part also contains a chapter on the analysis of symmetric structures (Chapter 10). Part Three of the book, Chapters 11 through 18, covers the analysis of statically indeterminate structures. The format of the book is flexible to enable instructors to emphasize topics that are consistent with the goals of the course.

Each chapter of the book begins with an introductory section defining its objective and ends with a summary section outlining its salient features. An important general feature of the book is the inclusion of step-by-step procedures for analysis to enable students to make an easier transition from theory to problem solving. Numerous solved examples are provided to illustrate the application of the fundamental concepts.
