Structural analysis is a core subject for civil and structural engineering undergraduates, and a challenging one. This new textbook provides a comprehensive and extensive collection of worked examples, showing students how to analyze different types of structures.
Each of the principal analysis techniques inherent in the design process are summarized and their uses are illustrated using numerous, fully worked and graded examples of international application, since it is not dependent on design codes. Where appropriate, detailed mathematical concepts are explained and integrated within the text.
With an uncommonly broad scope and an easy-to-follow step-by-step approach, this key text is ideal for first to final year students on civil/structural engineering, building and architecture courses as well as a practical reference for practising consultants, contractors and architects.

'The strength of this book is in the number of worked examples; these are extremely well presented with plenty of useful information both on how they have been solved and the results of the analysis.
I am sure that this is a book that will prove useful as an additional resource for both students and lecturers. Those in the design office responsible for structural analysis and design may also find it a useful reference book.'
