Matrix Analysis Framed Structures Book Review:

Matrix analysis of structures is a vital subject to every structural analyst, whether working in aero-astro, civil, or mechanical engineering. It provides a comprehensive approach to the analysis of a wide variety of structural types, and therefore offers a major advantage over traditional metho~ which often differ for each type of structure. The matrix approach also provides an efficient means of describing various steps in the analysis and is easily programmed for digital computers. Use of matrices is natural when performing calculations with a digital computer, because matrices permit large groups of numbers to be manipulated in a simple and effective manner. This book, now in its third edition, was written for both college students and engineers in industry. It serves as a textbook for courses at either the senior or first-year graduate level, and it also provides a permanent reference for practicing engineers. The book explains both the theory and the practical implementation of matrix methods of structural analysis. Emphasis is placed on developing a physical understanding of the theory and the ability to use computer programs for performing structural calculations.

An Introduction to Matrix Structural Analysis and Finite Element Methods Book Review:

This comprehensive volume is unique in presenting the typically decoupled fields of Matrix Structural Analysis (MSA) and Finite Element Methods (FEM) in a cohesive framework. MSA is used not only to derive formulations for truss, beam, and frame elements, but also to develop the overarching framework of matrix analysis. FEM builds on this foundation with numerical approximation techniques for solving boundary value problems in steady-state heat and linear elasticity. Focused on coding, the text guides the reader from first principles to explicit algorithms. This intensive, code-centric approach actively prepares the student or practitioner to critically assess the performance of commercial analysis packages and explore advanced literature on the subject.

Matrix Methods of Structural Analysis Book Review:

Matrix Methods of Structural Analysis, 2nd Edition deals with the use of matrix methods as standard tools for solving most non-trivial problems of structural analysis. Emphasis is on skeletal structures and the use of a more general finite element approach. The methods covered have natural links with techniques for automatic redundant selection in elastic analysis. This book is comprised of 11 chapters and begins with an introduction to the concepts and notation of matrix algebra, along with the value of a systematic approach; structure as an assembly of elements; boundaries and nodes; linearity and superposition; and how analytical methods are built up. The discussion then turns to the variables which form the basis of much of structural analysis, as well as the most important relationships between them. Subsequent chapters focus on the elastic properties of single elements; the equilibrium or displacement method; the equilibrium equations of a complete structure; plastic analysis and design; transfer matrices; and the analysis of non-linear structures. The compatibility or force method is also described. The final chapter considers the limits imposed by the size and accuracy of the computer used in structural analysis and how they can be extended. This monograph will be of interest to structural engineers and students of engineering.

MATRIX METHODS OF STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS Book Review:

The book describes in great detail the Matrix Methods of Structural Analysis used extensively for the analysis of skeletal or framed structures. The book gives complete coverage to the subject starting from the basics. It is organized in four parts: • Part 1 contains basic knowledge required to understand the subject i.e. Matrix operations, Methods for solving equations and concepts of flexibility matrix and stiffness matrix methods. • Part 2 deals with the applications of stiffness and flexibility matrix methods using system approach. By taking simple examples, the steps involved in both the methods are discussed and it is concluded why stiffness matrix method is more suitable for analysis of skeletal structures. • Part 3 covers the Stiffness matrix (displacement) method with member approach (direct Stiffness method) which is extensively used in the analysis of framed structures. It gives the details of the method, the steps involved in the method and its application to plane truss, space truss, beams, plane and space frames and grids. • Part 4 includes a unified computer program written in FORTRAN/C for the analysis of framed structure. The development of computer program, explanation of various subroutines, input output formats with examples is given in this section. An accompanying CD with the book contains source code, explanation of INPUT/OUTPUT and test examples. Though, the concepts have been presented in quite general form so that the book serves as a learning aid for students with different educational backgrounds as well as the practicing engineers, the primary objective is to present the subject matter in a simple manner so that the book can serve as a basic learning tool for undergraduate and postgraduate students of civil engineering.

Modern Structural Analysis Book Review:

This companion to the previously published book [BO]Classical Structural Analysis[BX], also by the same author, focuses on advanced structural analysis using matrix methods for the element method of design calculations. With this method, the structural properties of each structural member (or element) taken together, of an entire structure, are used to calculate load behaviour and construction needs of a whole building or other structure. The matrix method is particularly suited to computer methods that must employ thousands of reiterate calculations. The book contains dozens of worked-out problems and design exercises, as well as an actual computer program at the end of the book for matrix method calculations.
