Overview

This book emphasizes the basic concepts and adopts an educative approach to the understanding of structures and structural behavior. The book develops a competence in the classical methods of analysis,then extends the student's capability by discussing the matrix displacement method. Each distinct classical,approximate and numerical method is described and developed,and the relationship of approaches is explained. The utility and role of individual methods is clarified; from the elegance of the classical methods for solving small problems and checking computer-generated solutions to the power of the matrix stiffness approach for large and complex applications. Throughout the book the relation between design,construction and structural behavior is emphasized.
