Applying theory to structural modeling and analysis
Russell Hibbeler’s Structural Analysis 10th Edition (PDF), presents the applications and theory of structural analysis as it applies to beams, trusses, and frames. Through its reader-friendly, clear organization, the textbook emphasizes developing the ability to analyze and model a structure in preparation for professional practice.
The textbook is designed to ensure those taking their 1st 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 weight. The large number of problems cover very realistic situations involving various levels of difficulty.
The updated 10th edition features 30% new real problems and an expanded discussion of structural modeling, specifically the importance of modeling a given structure so it can be used in computer analysis. Newly added material includes a discussion of catenary cables, an update to the ASCE/SEI 2106 specifications, and further clarification for drawing moment and deflection diagrams for frames and beams.
Procedures for Analysis, provides readers with a logical, orderly method to follow when applying theory.
