FUNDAMENTALS OF STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING
|Author(s)||Jerome J. Connor, Susan Faraji|
This book on structural engineering is intended to provide industry with a well-balanced and seamless treatment of the established classic methods of analysis and modern computer-based techniques for the engineering structure design and conceptualizing. The principle goal of the volume is to foster a better understanding of the structural behavior on the basis of the problem-solving experience for the students of various fields of engineering who have exposed to fundamental concepts of mechanics. While most of the other books on the same subject are mainly focusing in the manual analysis methods and their application to the idealized and simple structure, this one encourages students to duly develop their intuition connected with the structural behavior. The approach applied by the authors of the title will assist in the development of such type of intuition through presentation of the realistic and extensive problems together with the numerous case studies and computer simulation, allowing for the exploration of how the mechanical structures are responding to the changes in their physical parameters of geometry. The content of the book has been found to be sufficiently comprehensive to be used for the students from elementary to high levels. The chapters have been organized by structural types and feature nine hundred figures and informative graphs.
