'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.'

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
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.
