Description - Structures by Alan Jennings

Structures: From Theory to Practice provides a comprehensive introduction to the analysis and design of structures. Aspects of structural behaviour, good design practice and effective computational techniques are used to illustrate the importance of the fundamental theoretical concepts presented. The overriding importance of equilibrium is emphasized and, together with related topics, is the subject of the first five chapters. After deflections have been introduced in chapter six, elastic theory, buckling, plastic theory and energy methods are all introduced and their range of applicability discussed. Numerous case-studies are provided to help readers gain an appreciation of how theory relates to real life structures in practice. With a broad range of worked examples, questions, and references to further reading, Structures: From Theory to Practice is the ideal course text for entry-level students on degree, HNC and HND courses.
