Presenting an introduction to elementary structural analysis methods and principles, this book will help readers develop a thorough understanding of both the behavior of structural systems under load and the tools needed to analyze those systems. Throughout the chapters, they'll explore both statically determinate and statically indeterminate structures. And they'll find hands-on examples and problems that illustrate key concepts and give them opportunity to apply what they've learned.
