This book presents students with the key fundamental elements of structural analysis and covers as much material as is needed for a single-semester course, allowing for a full understanding of indeterminate structural analysis methods without being overwhelming. Authored by four full professors of engineering, this class-tested approach is more practical and focused than what’s found in other existing structural analysis titles, and therefore more easily digestible and accessible. It also allows students to solve indeterminate structural analysis problems by utilizing different methods, enabling them to compare the merits of each, and providing a greater understanding of the subject material.


  • Includes practical examples to illustrate the concepts presented throughout the book
  • Examines and compares different methods to solve indeterminate structural analysis problems
  • Presents a focused treatment of the subject suitable as a primary text for coursework
