This book deals with matrix methods of structural analysis for linearly elastic framed structures. It starts with background of matrix analysis of structures followed by procedure to develop force-displacement relation for a given structure using flexibility and stiffness coefficients. The remaining text deals with the analysis of framed structures using flexibility, stiffness and direct stiffness methods. Simple programs using MATLAB for the analysis of structures are included in the appendix.
