This book provides students with a clear and thorough presentation of the theory and application of structural analysis as it applies to trusses, beams, and frames. Emphases are placed on teaching readers to both model and analyze a structure. A hallmark of the book, Procedures for Analysis, has been retained in this edition to provide learners with a logical, orderly method to follow when applying theory.

Emphasis is placed on teaching readers to both model and analyze a structure. Procedures for Analysis, Hibbeler’s problem solving methodologies, provides readers with a logical, orderly method to follow when applying theory.
