Fundamentals of Structural Analysis fourth edition, introduces engineering and architectural students to the basic techniques for analyzing the most common structural elements, including beams, trusses, frames, cables, and arches. The text covers the classical methods of analysis for determinate and indeterminate structures, and provides an introduction to the matrix formulation on which computer analysis is based.

This edition features an expanded treatment of snow, earthquake, and wind loads that are part of the updated ANSI/ASCE 7 standards. We've also added Historical Notes to this addition that provide valuable insights to the development of today's techniques and practices. Additionally, about 30% of the text's problems are new or heavily revised.

New Features

  • Enhanced Treatment of Design Loads is given in Chapter two. Superior coverage of various loads including gravity, wind, earthquake, and snow loads that includes live and dead loads based on teh ANSI/ASCE 7 Standard.
  • Historical Notes have been added to various chapters providing points in the history of accomplishments and developments in structural analysis methods. These provide context and promote learning.
  • Example PowerPoints Expanding on the strength of the text?s numerous examples, please take advantage of this NEW resource to discuss the examples in-class without writing them on the blackboard! The in-text examples are provided with their step-by-step calculations AND their solutions...along with all their corresponding figures!

Key Features

  • Companion Website for Students and Instructors is available at http://www.mhhe.com/leet. The site offers as RISA-2D, an image bank of the text's art, helpful Web links, and solutions.
  • Money-Saving eBook Option An electronic eBook version of this title is available at CourseSmart.com -- ISBN: 9780077305987
  • Computer Problems guide student understanding of the behavior of trusses, frames, and other structural systems that are commonly used in buildings and bridges. RISA-2D software is available free of charge with the text to help solve these problems.
