This book by Dr. Wilson describes in physical and practical terms the underlying theory used in the structural software of Computers & Structures, Inc.
Dr. Powell presents in this new book a common-sense approach for the modern world, where structural analysis is typically done by computer, and where modeling and interpretation can be more important than analysis theory and computational methods.
A classic, this definitive textbook has been popular with educators worldwide for nearly 30 years and now updated reflect the latest approaches and techniques in the field of structural dynamics for civil engineers.
Professor Mario Paz’s latest textbook offers a thoroughly updated look at matrix structural analysis, thoughtfully integrating theoretical discussions with practical engineering problems.
The book covers a wide variety of topics ranging from basic structural numerical analysis to practical implementation of complex concepts such as Ritz Analysis, Fast Nonlinear Analysis (FNA), Soil-Structure Interaction, Fluid-Structure Interaction, and more.
Written for the student with a background in structural dynamics and an interest in structural mechanics, this book introduces the theory of isolation with a focus on foundational concepts.
