For courses in Structural Analysis.
This book provides students with a clear and thorough presentation of the theory and application of structural analysis as it applies to trusses, beams, and frames. Emphases are placed on teaching students to both model and analyse a structure. Procedures for Analysis, Hibbeler's problem solving methodologies provide student with a logical, orderly method to follow when applying theory.
