Understanding Structures: An Introduction to Structural Analysis

1st Edition

Mete A. Sozen, Toshikatsu Ichinose
July 10, 2008

Before structural mechanics became the common language of structural engineers, buildings were built based on observed behavior, with every new solution incurring high levels of risk. Today, the pendulum has swung in the other direction. The web of structural mechanics is so finely woven that it...
