From the Back Cover:

This book gives structural engineers and students the background knowledge necessary to make safe and efficient use of commercial frame analysis programs by enabling them to:


  • Prepare input data knowing broadly how it will be used by the computer

  • Interpret the computer output

  • Select the most suitable computer program for the job in hand

  • Know when and why a structure is beyond the capabilities of a particular program

  • Devise cross checks when problems arise

The book aids understanding by providing a series of short computer programs, written in basic and designed to run on any computer from a desktop micro to a mainframe, to perform each of the standard procedures used in commercial structural analysis programs.

The new edition features programs upgraded to tackle larger problems and includes a new chapter on structural dynamics.

The two utility programs and six analysis programs make up an integrated structural analysis suite are available on disk from the author.
