Fundamentals of Structural Analysis, Second Edition offers a comprehensive and well-integrated presentation of the foundational principles of structural analysis. It presents a rigorous treatment of the underlying theory and a broad spectrum of example problems to illustrate practical applications. The book is richly illustrated with a balance between realistic representations of actual structures and the idealized sketches customarily used in engineering practice. There is a large selection of problems that can be assigned by the instructor that range in difficulty from simple to challenging.
Cameron West author of the "New York Times" bestselling memoir "First Person Plural", has a doctorate in psychology.
