Promoting and underlining the importance of structural thinking, Structural Systems: Behaviour and Design will provide readers with a comprehensive understanding of the behaviour of a wide range of structural systems based on the load-carrying mechanisms involved. Volume 1 provides readers with the fundamental concepts, predominantly focusing on plane structural systems, including beams, frames, arches and cable structures. Supported throughout with extensive diagrams, readers of all levels of experience will find this an accessible and authoritative text, enabling a solid understanding of structural behaviour without dependence on computer-generated models. This is the first in a two-volume series.

Volume: II
304 pages

Volume 1 provides readers with the fundamental concepts, predominantly focusing on plane structural systems, including beams, frames, arches and cable structures. Supported throughout with extensive diagrams, readers of all levels of experience will find this an accessible and authoritative text, enabling a solid understanding of structural behaviour without dependence on computer-generated models. Building on the fundamental concepts and basic structural systems covered in volume 1, this volume looks at the more advanced topics of spatial structural systems, dynamic behaviour and seismic response, and soil-structure interaction. Each topic is treated in a predominantly practical way and supported throughout with extensive diagrams, equipping readers with the analytical tools and structural understanding required to undertake the design of complex structures, including bridges, buildings, space covering roofs and foundations.
