Summary

A balanced approach to structural analysis, including both classical techniques and computer-based analysis

The  second edition of Structural Analysis: Understanding Behavior a team delivers a complete approach to the subject, expertly balancing the classical techniques of analysis with computer-based analysis experiences involving parametric studies. The book provides students with foundational knowledge in the concepts that come from studying a subset of classical techniques, and strengthens this foundation with the use of structural analysis software in activities designed to promote self-discovery of structural concepts and behaviors. Most problem sets include parametric exercises that are designed to let students discover the influence that various modeling parameters have upon the response of structures. Practicing engineers influenced topical coverage, such as the inclusion of the chapter on the lateral load path in a building and its relevant components¯a topic for which many graduating students would otherwise find themselves ill prepared. The author has also provided video examples for each chapter demonstrating the processes in the text, and showing problems worked out from start to finish.
