Book Description

The second edition of this highly informative book retains much original material covering the principles of structural mechanics and the strength of materials, together with the underlying concepts requisite to the theory of structure and structural design. Some of the material involving lengthy hand-drawing or hand-calculation has been replaced with more up-to-date relevant material and frequent reference is made to computer-aided learning techniques.
