Unilateral Problems in Structural Analysis — 2 Book Review:

The volume collects the contributions presented at the second meeting on Unilateral Problems, organized by CISM and held near Udine in June 1985. It gives an updated account of the state-of-the-art in the field of unilateral problems, with an outlook on open problems and on perspectives of application to structural analysis. The topic is presently the object of growing interest and is undergoing very rapid development. One of the most noticeable characteristics of unilateral problems is their interdisciplinary nature; they involve sophisticated mathematics, fundamental questions in mechanics, modern techniques in numerical analysis, re-inspection of the present knowledge of physical phenomena, and engineering applications. This volume succeeds in collecting and coordinating contributions from all these areas. For this reason, it is an excellent source of information for researchers working in the field.

Examples in Structural Analysis, Second Edition Book Review:

This second edition of Examples in Structural Analysis uses a step-by-step approach and provides an extensive collection of fully worked and graded examples for a wide variety of structural analysis problems. It presents detailed information on the methods of solutions to problems and the results obtained. Also given within the text is a summary of each of the principal analysis techniques inherent in the design process and where appropriate, an explanation of the mathematical models used. The text emphasises that software should only be used if designers have the appropriate knowledge and understanding of the mathematical modelling, assumptions and limitations inherent in the programs they use. It establishes the use of hand-methods for obtaining approximate solutions during preliminary design and an independent check on the answers obtained from computer analyses. What’s New in the Second Edition: New chapters cover the development and use of influence lines for determinate and indeterminate beams, as well as the use of approximate analyses for indeterminate pin-jointed and rigid-jointed plane-frames. This edition includes a rewrite of the chapter on buckling instability, expands on beams and on the use of the unit load method applied to singly redundant frames. The x-y-z co-ordinate system and symbols have been modified to reflect the conventions adopted in the structural Eurocodes. William M. C. McKenzie is also the author of six design textbooks relating to the British Standards and the Eurocodes for structural design and one structural analysis textbook. As a member of the Institute of Physics, he is both a chartered engineer and a chartered physicist and has been involved in consultancy, research and teaching for more than 35 years.

Basic Structural Analysis Book Review:

The third edition of this well-accepted textbook continues in its tradition of presenting the applications of principles, with the addition of a new chapter ""Double Integration Method"" for a complete treatment on ""Analysis of Determinate Structures''. This new chapter will make the reader understand the development of deflection analysis. This book caters to the needs of the student who enters the portals of Civil Engineering Department in the second year of UG programs. It will also be useful to understand the basic principles of structural analysis, energy principles, concepts of loads, arches, bridges, beams, analysis of statically determinate structures, and importance of influence line diagrams in analyzing problems on indeterminate beams. Moreover, the book can aid solving of basic structural engineering problems in an easy-to-follow and simple manner, avoiding unnecessary mathematical gymnastics and, instead, emphasizing on the engineering applications. The book takes an outcome-based learning approach, where the authors ensure that the students engage well with the contents of each chapter and the expected learning outcomes are achieved by them. Realizing the importance for a systematic approach to problem solving, Bloom's Taxonomy has been applied while designing the contents of the book, so that the students systematically learn to remember, understand, analyze, apply, evaluate and create learning. A large number of practical problems from various university and competitive examinations, presented in the book, will help students get a feel of the problems encountered in the real world. These will also help them during taking their own examinations. Updated chapters and inclusion of a new ""Double Integration Method"" extends the scope of the book, making it suitable to postgraduate level courses as well. Every topic is illustrated with a large number of worked out numerical examples. Contains problems from university and competitive examinations. Provides exercises in every chapter in an orderly way for self-study.
