View: 8357Matrix Structural Analysis focuses on the theory and practical application of matrix structural analysis. Organized into seven chapters, this book first describes the matrix algebra and the fundamental structural concepts and principles which are directly related to the development of the matrix methods. Subsequent chapters present the theory and application of the direct stiffness matrix method and matrix force method to structural analysis. The element stiffness matrices of lifting surface type structures and the general theory of analysis by structural partitioning are also presented. This book will be useful for students and practicing engineer as a quick reference material in this field of interest.
