In recent years an increasing emphasis has been placed on numerically based methods of structural analysis. This has been reflected in the production of structural mechanics texts that are orientated towards particular numerical methodologies, especially the finite element method. Whilst this approach serves the needs of potential 'research' engineers, a concentration on the numerical analysis aspects of structural mechanics is of less relevance to 'professional' engineers, who are likely to be concerned with the use and interpretation of numerical analyses, but not in the development of the methodologies. It is to this group that Advanced Structural Mechanics is especially addressed, offering a broad introduction to the principal themes of continuum mechanics and structural dynamics. This new edition of the popular book includes a greater focus on worked examples, problems and solutions to engage the reader.This new edition of the popular book includes a greater focus on worked examples, problems and solutions to engage the reader.
