About this title


The purpose of this text is to develop students’ fundamental understanding of the principles of structural analysis in the modern engineering office. Matrix methods and computer applications have in effect made many of the older “classical” methods of structural analysis redundant. Matrix methods, and structural analysis software such as SAP2000 are the tools that most engineers use in industry today. However, matrix methods alone may not give students the same “feel” for the behavior of structures subject to loads as does the practice of classical methods.

In addition to modern matrix methods, the author has included in this edition several of the classical methods because they give the student knowledge of the behavior of structures subject to varying loading. Students will develop a thorough understanding of the behavior of structural systems under load as they are introduced to the fundamentals of structural analysis for beams, trusses, and frames. The following classical methods are included in this edition: influence lines, conjugate-beam analysis for deflections, and approximate methods and moment distribution for statically indeterminate structures.

The availability of computational software has completely changed the practical application of structural analysis. Instead of applying classical methods, engineers often use computer programs prepared with matrix methods. For this reason, the educational version of the SAP2000 software, as well as the author-developed SABLE software, are available for download from the book website.

This text is suitable for the undergraduate level course. However, sufficient information is included for an additional course at the senior or graduate level.

Course Hierarchy:
Found in Civil Engineering, Architecture, Architectural Engineering, and Construction
Course is called Structural Analysis
Junior level course


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.
