Product Description

Review

'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.'

Ian May, Structures & Buildings

Format: Paperback
Offers loads of great worked examples from the very basic statically determinant problems to the most complicated space-frame and plastic portal analysis. The main focus of the book is to provide you with a vast amount of excellent worked examples rather than focus on the derivation of formulae that most text books to do.

I'm really happy with the price I paid for this book compared to most other websites and have added it to my ever expanding collection to help me in work and uni. I'm a 2nd year BSc student and after the first two years I feel as though the book doesn't leave me dumbfounded. However, revising for an up and coming exam I have been going through the the examples on page 159. I have noticed that half way down, when calculating the numbers for the moment Ma, as instructed, I get the wrong answer. I checked with tedds to rescue my sanity and the answer he provides is correct, however the problem is the author has requested the user to calculate the moment by the following method: +(4.0kN x 0.6m) + (4.0kN x 1.2m) - (V x 1.5m) - M = 0. When V has already been calculated as 2kN, if you follow the procedure, M = 4.2kN not the 10.2kN as provided as the answer. Problem is there is a text error and the: - (V x 1.5m) should be added and not taken away giving you 10.2kN.....

Sorry if I'm mistaken, as I really want this text book to be great, however after seen a simple calc fall over, I just hope that its the last one of its kind. If anyone has seen similar mistakes, could they add a review so i can mark them up in my copy....ta

Having spent a lot of time looking online for a book on structural analysis, to refresh and build on what I had done a few years ago ago at university, i was very pleased that this was more than up to the job.

It is well written with each section starting with a good description and worked example, then leading onto a few more examples with lots of diagrams along the way.

I have already related closely to some of the examples; using them to size structural steel members and to check what has been designed.

All in all a good book and I would certainly recommend it if you're a bit rusty on the analysis of structures or are looking for a good reference book on the subject to broaden your knowledge.
