This practical work is one of the most popular books on structural stability and is an outstandingly practical resource providing students and professional engineers in structural mechanics ad engineering with necessary background for easier transition from theory to practical design rules and, finally, to the computer implementation. It is a concise and very comprehensive intro applying the theory and principles of structural stability to the solution of the problems related to the practical building frame design. The special features of this book include classical solutions and the most important governing equations used in design, some selected examples of numerical and analytical methods, detailed info on the stability design rules, clear tables and illustrations, modern structural stability theories of frames and theories etc.
