Review

This book...shows how some very simple calculations can produce answers almost identical to those generated from full 3D finite element analyses. this book shows that engineers don't always need a lot of computer power to perform seismic analyses and the techniques described should be useful for any designers who need quick anwsers to what may appear to be very difficult analysis problems - The Structural Engineer.

The advent of computerised structural analysis and, in particular, of finite element programs has opened up vast possibilities for a fundamental reappraisal of existing approximate methods, including a more accurate definition of their scope and limits. A number of new methods are proposed. Many numerical examples and comparisons with accurate methods are given - Concrete International

'...will be very useful for designers...a very good addition to the libraries of consulting engineers, engineering organisations, and academic institutions. ...useful book with excellent printing, illustrations, and binding.' - Journal of Structural Engineering

Product Description

This book examines the recent developments in computerized structural analysis and finite element analysis to re-appraise existing approximate techniques and to define their scope and limits more accurately. The book proposes new techniques and provides many numerical examples and comparisons with 'accurate' methods.
