This book takes a fresh, student-oriented approach to teaching the material covered in the senior- and first-year graduate-level matrix structural analysis course. Unlike traditional texts for this course that are difficult to read, Kassimali takes special care to provide understandable and exceptionally clear explanations of concepts, step-by-step procedures for analysis, flowcharts, and interesting and modern examples, producing a technically and mathematically accurate presentation of the subject.


Written for a senior undergraduate and first year graduate-level matrix structural analysis course, this text focuses on the stiffness approach, while also including the fundamentals of the flexibility approach. It covers the analysis of two- and three- dimensional framed structures in static equilibrium and includes solved examples to clarify concepts and illustrate applications. The included CD-ROM contains Windows 95-based software allowing simulation of realistic structural, loading, and support configurations. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
