About the Authors
  • This volume provides a concise, historical review of the methods of structural analysis and design--from Galileo in the seventeenth century, to the present day. Through it, students in structural engineering and professional engineers will gain a deeper understanding of the theory behind the modern software packages they use daily in structural design. This book also offers the reader a lucid examination of the process of structural analysis and how it relates to modern design. The first three chapters cover questions about the strength of materials, and how to calculate local effects. An account is then given of the development of the equations of elastic flexure and buckling, followed by a separate chapter on masonry arches. Three chapters on the overall behavior of elastic structures lead to a discussion of plastic behavior, and a final chapter indicates that there are still problems needing solution.

    • A detailed account of the development this century of plastic methods - the fundamental theory of design used by today's engineers
    • A concise history of structural analysis over the last 350 years
    • Provides students in structural engineering and professional engineers with invaluable insight into the theory behind the software packages they use daily for structural design
