"This book is a delightful, clear, brief but sophisticated and insightful exposition of structural mechanics aimed at mechanical, civil, or architectural engineering undergraduates who have had introductory courses in statics and strength of materials."
J. Lambropoulos, Choice
The theoretical basis by which the strength, stiffness, and stability of a building can be understood is fundamental for students, structural engineers, and architects. This book presents structural theory, rather than a review of calculation techniques. Examples are deliberately kept simple, and mathematical foundations are sketched in three short appendices.See all Product description

Perhaps my expectations were too great. How much can you fit into 130

Somewhat disappointing. Too much discussion and not enough practical application. Perhaps my expectations were too great. How much can you fit into 130 pages

Nice review of analysis and design

This is a very good book. It explains clearly how plastic theory is relevant to structural design. Elastic theory is almost accepted without thinking as representative of the stresses experienced by a structure. This book shows it's not and why we need not be too concerned. The Lower Bound Theory of plastic collapse is the elastic designer's saviour!
