Deflections tend to have more significance in modern structures, especially those that are either taller, longer, or have wider spans than earlier designs. It is also necessary to provide desirable distributions of internal forces in order to achieve effective, efficient and elegant structures.

This book presents four structural concepts relating to deflections and internal forces in structures. It demonstrates a number of routes and physical measures together with their implementation for creating desirable distributions of internal forces and for designing structures against deflection. Hand calculation examples, with and without using the implementation measures, are provided to quantify the effectiveness and efficiency of the structural concepts. Practical examples, including several well-known structures, are considered qualitatively to illustrate the practical implementation of the structural concepts and show their structural rationale.

The book is especially suitable for advanced undergraduate and graduate students studying civil engineering or architecture, and should enhance the holistic comprehension of structural engineers and architects.


  • Develops the concepts from their principles through to their implementation
  • Provides worked examples in pairs, and analyses real structures
  • Especially suits final year undergraduates and graduate students in structural engineering
