## Matrix Methods of Structural AnalysisPresents the subject of advanced structural analysis in a wider perspective. The chapters have been completely rewritten, emphasizing the general view of structure as an assembly of truss, beam and finite elements. New additions introduce analytical methods of dynamic and nonlinear problems. Includes all the essential features of programming considerations required in developing computer programs of structural analysis. |
