For courses in Structural Analysis; also suitable for individuals planning a career as a structural engineer.
Applying theory to structural modeling and analysis
Structural Analysis, 10th Edition, presents the theory and applications of structural analysis as it applies to trusses, beams, and frames. Through its student-friendly, clear organization, the text emphasizes developing the ability to model and analyze a structure in preparation for professional practice.
The text is designed to ensure students taking their first course in this subject understand some of the more important classical methods of structural analysis, in order to obtain a better understanding of how loads are transmitted through a structure, and how the structure will deform under load. The large number of problems cover realistic situations involving various levels of difficulty.
The updated 10th edition features 30% new problems and an expanded discussion of structural modeling, specifically the importance of modeling a structure so it can be used in computer analysis. Newly added material includes an update to the ASCE/SEI 2106 specifications, a discussion of catenary cables, and further clarification for drawing moment and deflection diagrams for beams and frames.
