A revised edition of this complete course in structural analysis from undergraduate work on theory of structures up to more advanced work for the senior student and practising engineer. New sections review the basic mechanics of statically determinate structures, deal with structural symmetry and expand on the analysis of the effects of temperature and prestressing. The coverage of the finite element method and the use of computers in structural analysis has been totally rewritten and expanded by the addition of two new chapters.

'This book has much to commend it. It will be of use to a student as a standard work on indeterminate structures. The work will also be of interest to an older engineer who studied his theory of structures before matrix methods were introduced. The book will enable him to see the relations between the new and old methods and bridge the gap between the two.' - Magazine of Concrete Reasearch 'A virtual encyclopaedia of structural analysis' - Choice 'Undoubtedly one of the best and most comprehensive books written on the subject' - Endeavour 'The book is exemplary and stimulating for the future shaping of education in structural analysis.'
