Preface to Structural Analysis PDF


This book is intended to provide the student with a clear and thorough presentation of the theory and application of structural analysis as it applies to trusses, beams, and frames.

Emphasis is placed on developing the student’s ability to both models and analyze a structure and to provide realistic applications encountered in professional practice. For many years now, engineers have been using matrix methods to analyze structures.

Although these methods are most efficient for structural analysis, it is the author’s opinion that students taking a first course in this subject should also be well versed in some of the more important classical methods.

Practice in applying these methods will develop a deeper understanding of the basic engineering sciences of statics and mechanics of materials.

Also, problem-solving skills are further developed when the various techniques are thought out and applied in a clear and orderly way.

By solving problems in this way one can better grasp the way loads are transmitted through a structure and obtain a more complete understanding of the way the structure deforms under load.

Finally, the classical methods provide a means of checking computer results rather than simply relying on the generated output.

New Material and Content Revision. This edition now includes examples of the causes of structural failures, the concept of a load path, and an enhanced discussion for drawing shear and moment diagrams and the deflection of beams and frames.

Chapter 17 has been added, which now provides a discussion of structural modeling concepts and a general description of how computer software is applied.

Included are some structural modeling projects, along with a set of problems that require a computer analysis. Structural Terminology.

There are several places throughout the text where illustrations and discussion of additional terminology have been added so that the student becomes familiar with the basic forms of fundamental structures and the names of their members.

Problem Arrangement. Different from the previous edition, the problems in each chapter are now placed at the end of the chapter. They are grouped with section headings for the convenience of assigning problems for homework. New Problems.

There are approximately 70% of new problems in this edition. They retain a balance of easy, medium, and difficult applications.

In addition, some new fundamental problems have been added that stress the importance of drawing frame moment diagrams and drawing deflected structures.

Apart from the author, the problems have been checked by four other parties, namely Scott Hendricks, Karim Nora, Kurt Norlin, and Kai Beng Yap.

Additional Photos. The relevance of knowing the subject matter is reflected by the realistic applications depicted in many new and updated photos along with captions that are placed throughout the book. 

Organization and Approach

The contents of each chapter are arranged into sections with specific topics categorized by title headings.

Discussions relevant to a particular theory are succinct, yet thorough. In most cases, this is followed by a “procedure for analysis” guide, which provides the student with a summary of the important concepts and a systematic approach for applying the theory.

The example problems are solved using this outlined method in order to clarify its numerical application.

Problems are given at the end of each chapter and are arranged to cover the material in sequential order. Moreover, for any topic, they are arranged in approximate order of increasing difficulty.
