Structural Analysis: Using Classical and Matrix Methods / Edition 3 available in Hardcover
- Pub. Date:
James Nelson and Jack McCormac presnet elementary analysis methods and principles along with the latest computational software, so you can develop a thorough understanding of both the behavior of structural systems under load and the toolks engineers use to anlyze those systems. You'll explore both statically determinate and statically inderterminate structures, and gain valuable experience with professional software, such as SAP2000. Throughout the text, hands-on examples and problems illustrate key concepts and give you the opportunity to apply what you've learned.
Highlight of the Third Edition
• Improved and expanded examples provide greater clarity.
• A CD, packaged with this text, includes the educational version of SAP2000 structural analysis software.
• The data files for the computer examples worked using SAP2000 are now included on the CD-ROM.
• The authors use matrix notation and methods of equation solving in many examples to facilitate solving the equations.
• Expanded chapters on matrix methods for structural analysis now include a finite element formulation.
• Extensively revised chapters on Reactions, Shearing Force and Bending Moment, Deflection and Angles Changes, and Energy Method for Statically Indeterminate Structures reflect current thinking and needs.
• Updated coverage of Structural Loads and System Loading and Behavior includes the provisions of ASCE 7-98 and reference to the IBC 2000 building code.
