A complete guide to skeletal structural analysis
This authoritative resource discusses structural analysis based on force, displacement, and iterative methods, and explains how to use mechanical dynamics to analyze structural loads and forces.
Dynamic Analysis of Skeletal Structures covers determinacy and indeterminacy, plastic analysis, stiffening of structures for increased capacities, ductility, virtual work principles, earthquake design of tall buildings, maintenance of large structural systems, and more. Detailed examples, illustrations, and worked equations are included throughout. The concepts presented in the book will help you solve challenging problems encountered in professional practice and design safe, efficient structures.
Comprehensive coverage includes:
- General concepts and energy principles
- Force method
- Plastic analysis
- Approximate methods of analysis of tall building frames
- Matrix approach for force method
- Displacement method
- Iterative techniques
- Introduction to applied dynamics and design of tall buildings
