Reviews

Plaudits for the textbook, 'Understanding Structural Analysis'

We have had a number of positive and supportive messages regarding this textbook in recent months. But the one that covers all the bases is on Amazon from whom the book may be bought.

4.0 out of 5 stars - A must buy for structural engineers and students alike, 17 April 2011 by Daniel Nelson (Surrey, UK): Understanding Structural Analysis (Paperback):

This is not your typical structures book that you read to be able design structural elements using a bunch of equations and formulas where you don't even know where they have come from. This book instead gives you a deep understanding of structural analysis from basic principles using clear examples and diagrams, and in our time where the process of analysis and design of structures are done by computers more than ever, understanding structures and qualitative analysis is very important in order to ensure the validity of computer calculations. This book, along with Understanding Structures by Derek Seward were my bibles during my time in university while studying structural engineering, and are still the most useful of the bunch at work. An absolute joy to read, shame about the price though.(Still good value with the software download!)
