The book provides a balanced coverage of concepts, basic definitions, and analytical techniques in the field of structural analysis. Starting with the coverage of basic topics such as loads and forms of structures, analysis and deflection of simple beams, and strain energy theorems, itdiscusses specific analysis methods for statically indeterminate structures, such as slope deflection, moment distribution, and Kani's methods. It also discusses certain advanced topics such as finite element method, plastic analysis of structures, and beams on elastic foundation.The text is user-friendly with a large number of worked-out examples and problems to encourage the reader towards independent problem solving. Undergraduate students of engineering and AMIE as well as practising professionals would find this book extremely useful for its exhaustive coverage ofanalysis techniques.
