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.

The fifth edition of this comprehensive textbook combines and develops concurrently, both classical and matrix-based methods of structural analysis. A new introductory chapter on structural analysis modelling has been added. The suitability of modelling structures as beams, plane or space frames and trusses, plane grids or assemblages of finite elements is discussed in this chapter, along with idealisation of loads, anticipated deformations, sketching deflected shapes, and bending moment diagrams. With new solved examples and problems added, the book now has over 100 worked examples and more than 350 problems with answers. A new companion website contains computer programs that can serve as optional aids in studying and in engineering practice: www.sponpress.com/civeng/support.htm. Structural Analysis: A Unified Classical and Matrix Approach, translated into six languages, is a textbook of great international renown, and is recommended by many civil and structural engineering lecturers to their students due to its clear and thorough style and content

TRY (FREE for 14 days), OR RENT this title: www.wileystudentchoice.com When teaching structural analysis, some contend that students need broad exposure to many of the classical techniques of analysis, while others argue that learners benefit more from the computer-based analysis experiences that involve parametric studies. Structural Analysis, Understanding Behavior strikes a balance between these viewpoints. Students may no longer need to know every classical technique but they still need a fundamental knowledge of the concepts which come from studying a subset of classical techniques. This foundation is then strengthened by the use of structural analysis software in activities designed to promite self-discovery of structural concepts and behaviors. This text was developed with this goal in mind.

Bridging the gap between what is traditionally taught in textbooks and what is actually practiced in engineering firms, Introduction to Structural Analysis: Displacement and Force Methods clearly explains the two fundamental methods of structural analysis: the displacement method and the force method. It also shows how these methods are applied, particularly to trusses, beams, and rigid frames. Acknowledging the fact that virtually all computer structural analysis programs are based on the matrix displacement method of analysis, the text begins with the displacement method. A matrix operations tutorial is also included for review and self-learning. To minimize any conceptual difficulty readers may have, the displacement method is introduced with the plane truss analysis and the concept of nodal displacement. The book then presents the force method of analysis for plane trusses to illustrate force equilibrium, deflection, statistical indeterminacy, and other concepts that help readers to better understand the behavior of a structure. It also extends the force method to beam and rigid frame analysis. Toward the end of the book, the displacement method reappears along with the moment distribution and slope-deflection methods in the context of beam and rigid frame analysis. Other topics covered include influence lines, non-prismatic members, composite structures, secondary stress analysis, and limits of linear and static structural analysis. Integrating classical and modern methodologies, this book explains complicated analysis using simplified methods and numerous examples. It provides readers with an understanding of the underlying methodologies of finite element analysis and the practices used by professional structural engineers.

Designed as a textbook for the undergraduate students of civil engineering and postgraduate students of structural engineering, this comprehensive book presents the fundamental aspects of matrix analysis of structures. The basic features of Matrix Structural Analysis along with its intricacies in application to actual problems backed up by numerical examples, form the main objective of writing this book. The text begins with the chapters on basics of matrices and structural systems. After providing the foundation for matrix structural representation, the text moves onto dimensional and behavioral aspects of structural systems to classify into pin-jointed systems, then onto beams and finally three-dimensional rigid jointed systems. The text concludes with a chapter on special techniques in using matrices for structural analysis. Besides, MATLAB codes are given at the end to illustrate interfacing with standard computing tool. A large number of numerical examples are given in each chapter which will reinforce the understanding of the subject matter.

Preliminary chapters are supposed to give suitable transition from structural analysis – classical methods studied by students in their compulsory courses. Then structure approach to matrix method is dealt so that the students get clear picture of matrix approach. Finally, stiffness matrix method – element approach is explained and illustrated so that before developing computer program student will understand what to instruct computer. Finally, a chapter an computer programming preliminaries which will help to develop the computer program and cautious the way of program develop by the others is included.
