For graduate and advanced undergraduate students in civil, mechanical, and aeronautical engineering, Cheng (civil engineering, U. of Missouri-Rolla) considers a number of related topics, among them the displacement method with matrix formulation, the theory and analysis of structural dynamics, and its application to earthquake engineering and seismic building codes. He looks at lumped mass, consistent mass, and distributed mass structural models; analyses the material properties of proportional and non-proportional damping; and studies hysteretic behavior with eight models suited to different construction material such as steel and reinforced concrete. He assumes readers to be knowledgeable in the strength of materials, fundamental static structural analysis, calculus, and linear algebra and reviews algebraic matrix formulation, ordinary and partial differential equations, vector analysis, and complex variables where necessary.
