<p><b><i>Fundamentals of Structural Analysis</i></b> offers a comprehensive and well-integrated presentation of the foundational principles of structural analysis. It presents a rigorous treatment of the underlying theory and a broad spectrum of example problems to illustrate practical applications. The book is richly illustrated with a balance between realistic representations of actual structures and the idealized sketches customarily used in engineering practice. There is a large selection of problems that can be assigned by the instructor that range in difficulty from simple to challenging.</p>
