Product description


"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

Book Description

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.
