## Analysis of Structures: Strength and BehaviourDesigned for an introductory course, Analysis of Structures: Strength and Behaviour adopts a modern and practical approach to structural analysis by integrating and unifying various concepts belonging to a particular structure/member under a single topic. The book provides a comprehensive coverage of concepts, basic definitions, and analytical techniques that provide the foundation for the field of structural analysis. It also discusses many current topics like offshore structures, safety auditing of structures and experimental stress analysis, etc., which will equip students with the necessary cutting edge technology in this field. These topics are also of relevance to present day engineers. Innovative in its layout, the text is user-friendly with a large number of worked-out examples that encourages the reader towards independent problem-solving. A large number of illustrations aid the explanations provided in the text. |
