9780470484692: Structural Analysis: Using Classical and Matrix Methods

Presenting an introduction to elementary structural analysis methods and principles, this book will help readers develop a thorough understanding of both the behavior of structural systems under load and the tools needed to analyze those systems. Throughout the chapters, theyll explore both statically determinate and statically indeterminate structures. And theyll find hands-on examples and problems that illustrate key concepts and give them opportunity to apply what theyve learned."

From the Back Cover:

Principles, methods, and professional tools you can build on!

Jack McCormac presents elementary analysis methods and principles, as well as use of computational software, so you can develop a thorough understanding of both the behavior of structural systems under load and the tools engineers use to analyze those systems. You′ll explore both statically determinate and statically indeterminate structures, and gain valuable experience with professional software. Throughout the text, hands–on examples and problems illustrate key concepts and give you the opportunity to apply what you′ve learned.

Highlights of the Fourth Edition

  • The load sections of Chapter 2 and 3 are revised to conform to SEI/ASCE 7–02 as well as to the 2003 International Building Code.
  • The matrix chapters (Chapters 22–25) are completely revised and substantially expanded. Matrix notation and methods of equation solving are used in many examples to facilitate solving the equations.
  • Includes many new homework problems. Many of the existing homework problems are revised.
  • Covers classical methods such as influence lines, conjugate–beam analysis for deflections, and approximate methods and slope deflection for statically indeterminate structures.
  • Features many illustrations graphically showing the principles discussed as well as detailed examples with clear explanations of the procedures.
  • The accompanying website includes the educational version of SAP2000 structural analysis software as well as the author–developed SABLE (Structural Analysis and Behavior for Learning Engineering) Software.

About the Author:

Jack C. McCormac is Alumni Distinguished Professor o Civil Engineering, Emeritus at Clemson University. He holds a BS in civil engineering from the Citadel, an MS in civil engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and a Doctor of Letters from Clemson University. His contributions to engineering education and the engineering profession have been recognized by many, including the American Society for Engineering Education, the American Institute of Steel Construction, and the American Concrete Institute. Professor McCormac was included in the International Who′s Who in Engineering, and was named by the Engineering News–Record as one of the top 125 engineers or architects in the world in the last 125 years for his contributions to the construction industry. He was one of only two educators living in the world today to receive this honor.

Professor McCormac belongs to the American Society of Civil Engineers and served as the principal civil engineering grader for the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying for many years.
