This book is an introductory text on structural analysis and structural design. While the emphasis is on fundamental concepts, the ideas are reinforced through a combination of limited versatile classical techniques and numerical methods. Structural analysis and structural design including optimal design are strongly linked through design examples. Included computer software enhances the learning experience.
