Recent advancements in the selection of various geometric structural forms demand understanding of structural analysis using computer-aided tools. This book presents various important aspects of computer-aided tools and programming for advanced structural analysis, and includes exercises, exams with solutions, and MATLAB input-output code to provide a complete understanding of concepts. The content has been well received by graduate students and faculty colleagues. Demand from the students for a full-length textbook motivated the author to develop the present book, which follows a classroom model of explaining the concepts through clear explanations, illustrations, and tutorials.
