"Ebook Library" Matrix Analysis of Structures PDF
By Robert E. Sennett
“A room without books is like a body without a soul.” -Cicero
Matrix analysis of structures has become a widely used method in virtually all engineering disciplines. Sennett's outstanding volume clearly presents the displacement method of matrix analysis from its use with a one-dimensional bar element through two-dimensional trusses and frames, finishing with three-dimensional transformations. Special topics, energy methods, and a brief introduction to the finite element method also are included. Computer programming, an essential part of engineering, perm...
