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.

This second edition of Examples in Structural Analysis uses a step-by-step approach and provides an extensive collection of fully worked and graded examples for a wide variety of structural analysis problems. It presents detailed information on the methods of solutions to problems and the results obtained. Also given within the text is a summary of each of the principal analysis techniques inherent in the design process and where appropriate, an explanation of the mathematical models used. The text emphasises that software should only be used if designers have the appropriate knowledge and understanding of the mathematical modelling, assumptions and limitations inherent in the programs they use. It establishes the use of hand-methods for obtaining approximate solutions during preliminary design and an independent check on the answers obtained from computer analyses. What’s New in the Second Edition: New chapters cover the development and use of influence lines for determinate and indeterminate beams, as well as the use of approximate analyses for indeterminate pin-jointed and rigid-jointed plane-frames. This edition includes a rewrite of the chapter on buckling instability, expands on beams and on the use of the unit load method applied to singly redundant frames. The x-y-z co-ordinate system and symbols have been modified to reflect the conventions adopted in the structural Eurocodes.
