This comprehensive volume is unique in presenting the typically decoupled fields of Matrix Structural Analysis (MSA) and Finite Element Methods (FEM) in a cohesive framework. MSA is used not only to derive formulations for truss, beam, and frame elements, but also to develop the overarching framework of matrix analysis. FEM builds on this foundation with numerical approximation techniques for solving boundary value problems in steady-state heat and linear elasticity. Focused on coding, the text guides the reader from first principles to explicit algorithms. This intensive, code-centric approach actively prepares the student or practitioner to critically assess the performance of commercial analysis packages and explore advanced literature on the subject.

A Correlation Study of Methods of Matrix Structural Analysis describes the results of a survey and review of airframe matrix structural analysis. The book also explains concepts of force and displacement, as well as the techniques for determining the force-displacement properties of discrete elements employed in analytical idealizations of structures. The text investigates the results of extensive analyses of multiweb low aspect ratio wings, using past evaluative studies and idealizations contained in reports of the AGARD Structures and Materials Panel. The techniques describe in the Panel and other techniques in matrix structural analysis lead to identical formulations of the governing equations. The differences between various references with respect to idealization are independent of the formulation of the governing equations. The solutions to governing equations are precise solutions for the postulated discrete element system. The book also describes a recommended computer program development using whichever is more appropriate between a force approach or displacement approach to matrix structural analysis. The text is valuable for researchers in structural analysis, aeronautics, applied mechanics, and investigators of aircraft engineering.

The book describes in great detail the Matrix Methods of Structural Analysis used extensively for the analysis of skeletal or framed structures. The book gives complete coverage to the subject starting from the basics. It is organized in four parts: • Part 1 contains basic knowledge required to understand the subject i.e. Matrix operations, Methods for solving equations and concepts of flexibility matrix and stiffness matrix methods. • Part 2 deals with the applications of stiffness and flexibility matrix methods using system approach. By taking simple examples, the steps involved in both the methods are discussed and it is concluded why stiffness matrix method is more suitable for analysis of skeletal structures. • Part 3 covers the Stiffness matrix (displacement) method with member approach (direct Stiffness method) which is extensively used in the analysis of framed structures. It gives the details of the method, the steps involved in the method and its application to plane truss, space truss, beams, plane and space frames and grids. • Part 4 includes a unified computer program written in FORTRAN/C for the analysis of framed structure. The development of computer program, explanation of various subroutines, input output formats with examples is given in this section. An accompanying CD with the book contains source code, explanation of INPUT/OUTPUT and test examples. Though, the concepts have been presented in quite general form so that the book serves as a learning aid for students with different educational backgrounds as well as the practicing engineers, the primary objective is to present the subject matter in a simple manner so that the book can serve as a basic learning tool for undergraduate and postgraduate students of civil engineering.
