For courses in Structural Analysis; also suitable for individuals planning a career as a structural engineer.

Structural Analysis in SI Units, presents the theory and applications of structural analysis as it applies to trusses, beams, and frames. Through its student-friendly, clear organisation, the text emphasises developing the ability to model and analyse a structure in preparation for professional practice.

The text is designed to ensure students taking their first course in this subject understand some of the more important classical methods of structural analysis, in order to obtain a better understanding of how loads are transmitted through a structure, and how the structure will deform under load. The large number of problems covers realistic situations involving various levels of difficulty.

The updated 10th SI edition features many new problems and an expanded discussion of structural modeling, specifically the importance of modeling a structure so it can be used in computer analysis. Newly added material includes a discussion of catenary cables and further clarification for drawing moment and deflection diagrams for beams and frames.

Features & benefits
  • The organisation and approach of the text presents a structured method for introducing each new definition or concept, and makes the book a convenient resource for later reference and review. Each chapter is organised into well-defined sections that contain an explanation of specific topics, illustrative example problems, and, at the end of the chapter, a set of relevant homework problems.
  • Procedures for Analysis is a unique feature that provides students with a logical and systematic method for applying theory and building problem-solving skills. The example problems are solved using this outlined method in order to clarify the steps needed for solution.
  • Structural modeling is discussed throughout, especially as it applies to modeling a structure for a computer analysis.
  • Rewritten text material clarifies and expands upon concepts throughout the book.
  • Material has been added throughout, including a discussion of catenary cables, and further clarification for drawing moment and deflection diagrams for beams and frames.
  • Photographs throughout the book demonstrate how principles of structural analysis apply to real-world situations and help students visualise difficult concepts.
  • Illustrations throughout the text include newly added two-colour art, as well as photorealistic illustrations representing the 3-D nature of structural engineering.
  • A rigorous Triple Accuracy Checking review of the 10th SI edition includes the author’s review of all content
  • End-of-chapter review summarises chapter content and accompanies each important point with the chapter’s relevant equation and art.
  • This edition includes many new problems, designed to test students’ ability to apply theory to realistic practical situations. All units are SI units.
