This book focuses on the fundamental principles of mechanics and the basic assumptions that are the heart of the linear theory of structures. Presents numerous examples to demonstrate that mastery of principles is all that is needed to be proficient in formulating and solving problems in the analysis of structures. It explores the important classical methods for the analysis of statically determinate and statically indeterminate structures, and presents a uniquely different mode of reasoning and derivation of the virtual work method for calculating small displacements of structures Contains many examples with detailed drawings to illustrate important geometric concepts. Those studying or working in civil engineering.
