Matrix Structural Analysis By: Dr. Pramod K. Singh Matrix structural analysis is a very elementary and useful subject, which is a stepping stone towards understanding more advanced subjects such as detailed finite element analysis, structural dynamics, and stability of structures. In the present day context, where use of computers for analysis of structures having ever-increasing complexity and size is mandatory, knowledge of this subject is essential even at undergraduate level. Study of the subject, not only clarifies structural analysis concepts, but it is also helpful in understanding of the unified analysis and design softwares like STAAD.Pro, SAP etc. Key Features • Presents the unified approach of analysis for all types of skeletal structures. • Concept of degree(s) of freedom is used in the solutions. • The following web link can be used to download the soft copy of FORTRAN-90 program, its application file, data file and other supporting files. drive.google.com/open?id=1WBhAeAUBr-kWY7S7CZzV41Ysxlohbgh5 • Computer solutions of the 5 examples on direct stiffness matrix method, and 30 other solved examples are also given in the web link for ready reference.

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.

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.

The book describes in great detail the Matrix Methods of Structural Analysis used extensively for the analysis of skeletal or framed structures. The book gives complete coverage to the subject starting from the basics. It is organized in four parts: • Part 1 contains basic knowledge required to understand the subject i.e. Matrix operations, Methods for solving equations and concepts of flexibility matrix and stiffness matrix methods. • Part 2 deals with the applications of stiffness and flexibility matrix methods using system approach. By taking simple examples, the steps involved in both the methods are discussed and it is concluded why stiffness matrix method is more suitable for analysis of skeletal structures. • Part 3 covers the Stiffness matrix (displacement) method with member approach (direct Stiffness method) which is extensively used in the analysis of framed structures. It gives the details of the method, the steps involved in the method and its application to plane truss, space truss, beams, plane and space frames and grids. • Part 4 includes a unified computer program written in FORTRAN/C for the analysis of framed structure. The development of computer program, explanation of various subroutines, input output formats with examples is given in this section. An accompanying CD with the book contains source code, explanation of INPUT/OUTPUT and test examples. Though, the concepts have been presented in quite general form so that the book serves as a learning aid for students with different educational backgrounds as well as the practicing engineers, the primary objective is to present the subject matter in a simple manner so that the book can serve as a basic learning tool for undergraduate and postgraduate students of civil engineering.
