Structures: Theory and Analysis

Availability: Ready to download

A comprehensive textbook that encompasses the full range of material covered in undergraduate courses in Structures in departments of Civil and Mechanical Engineering. The approach taken aims to integrate a qualitative approach - looking at the physical reality of phenomena - with a quantitative approach - one that models the physical reality mathematically. An innovative A comprehensive textbook that encompasses the full range of material covered in undergraduate courses in Structures in departments of Civil and Mechanical Engineering. The approach taken aims to integrate a qualitative approach - looking at the physical reality of phenomena - with a quantitative approach - one that models the physical reality mathematically. An innovative introductory chapter looks at different types of structures - from the commonplace, such as chairs and aeroplanes, and the historically significant, such as the Pont du Gard in southern France, through to modern and novel structures such as the Bank of China building in Hong Kong - with a view to enthusing the reader into further study.

    Oh, where do I start? Trusses, beams, bending moments, bridges, 'Structures, Theory and Analysis' truly does have it all. Chapter one starts with a gentle yet thorough introduction to the world of trusses. Who would have thought that something I have always associated with my school's old gym could be so interesting! For aspiring bridge builders, Chapter two provides an overview of beams and bending moments, which when combined with the analysis of trusses provides all the tools needed to design Oh, where do I start? Trusses, beams, bending moments, bridges, 'Structures, Theory and Analysis' truly does have it all. Chapter one starts with a gentle yet thorough introduction to the world of trusses. Who would have thought that something I have always associated with my school's old gym could be so interesting! For aspiring bridge builders, Chapter two provides an overview of beams and bending moments, which when combined with the analysis of trusses provides all the tools needed to design a bridge of your very own. Worried that your bridge might fail catastrophically, leading its poor users to their miserable end? Well worry not; Chapter three introduces failure mechanisms, and how to ensure that anything that you design can truly withstand required loads. From energy methods to hinge analyses, Todd manages bring together all aspects of failure into one succinct chapter. What about buildings, I hear you ask! With modern skyscrapers reaching up to 2 miles high, it is of no surprise that Todd dedicated a whole two chapters to designing structures that go high as opposed to wide. Unfortunately this is as far as my reading takes me - I have had the book just two weeks. If the first four chapters are anything to go by, however, this book is certainly a keeper.
