Matrix 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.

An Introduction to Matrix Structural Analysis and Finite Element Methods

This comprehensive volume is unique in presenting the typically decoupled fields of Matrix Structural Analysis (MSA) and Finite Element Methods (FEM) in a cohesive framework. MSA is used not only to derive formulations for truss, beam, and frame elements, but also to develop the overarching framework of matrix analysis. FEM builds on this foundation with numerical approximation techniques for solving boundary value problems in steady-state heat and linear elasticity. Focused on coding, the text guides the reader from first principles to explicit algorithms. This intensive, code-centric approach actively prepares the student or practitioner to critically assess the performance of commercial analysis packages and explore advanced literature on the subject.

A Correlation Study of Methods of Matrix Structural Analysis describes the results of a survey and review of airframe matrix structural analysis. The book also explains concepts of force and displacement, as well as the techniques for determining the force-displacement properties of discrete elements employed in analytical idealizations of structures. The text investigates the results of extensive analyses of multiweb low aspect ratio wings, using past evaluative studies and idealizations contained in reports of the AGARD Structures and Materials Panel. The techniques describe in the Panel and other techniques in matrix structural analysis lead to identical formulations of the governing equations. The differences between various references with respect to idealization are independent of the formulation of the governing equations. The solutions to governing equations are precise solutions for the postulated discrete element system. The book also describes a recommended computer program development using whichever is more appropriate between a force approach or displacement approach to matrix structural analysis. The text is valuable for researchers in structural analysis, aeronautics, applied mechanics, and investigators of aircraft engineering.

Designed as a textbook for the undergraduate students of civil engineering and postgraduate students of structural engineering, this comprehensive book presents the fundamental aspects of matrix analysis of structures. The basic features of Matrix Structural Analysis along with its intricacies in application to actual problems backed up by numerical examples, form the main objective of writing this book. The text begins with the chapters on basics of matrices and structural systems. After providing the foundation for matrix structural representation, the text moves onto dimensional and behavioral aspects of structural systems to classify into pin-jointed systems, then onto beams and finally three-dimensional rigid jointed systems. The text concludes with a chapter on special techniques in using matrices for structural analysis. Besides, MATLAB codes are given at the end to illustrate interfacing with standard computing tool. A large number of numerical examples are given in each chapter which will reinforce the understanding of the subject matter.

Matrix analysis of structures is a vital subject to every structural analyst, whether working in aero-astro, civil, or mechanical engineering. It provides a comprehensive approach to the analysis of a wide variety of structural types, and therefore offers a major advantage over traditional metho~ which often differ for each type of structure. The matrix approach also provides an efficient means of describing various steps in the analysis and is easily programmed for digital computers. Use of matrices is natural when performing calculations with a digital computer, because matrices permit large groups of numbers to be manipulated in a simple and effective manner. This book, now in its third edition, was written for both college students and engineers in industry. It serves as a textbook for courses at either the senior or first-year graduate level, and it also provides a permanent reference for practicing engineers. The book explains both the theory and the practical implementation of matrix methods of structural analysis. Emphasis is placed on developing a physical understanding of the theory and the ability to use computer programs for performing structural calculations.
