About the Book

Structural Analysis, or the 'Theory of Structures', is an important subject for civil engineering students who are required to analyze and design structures. It is a vast field and is largely taught at the undergraduate level. A few topics like Matrix Method and Plastic Analysis are also taught at the postgraduate level and in structural  engineering electives. The entire course has been covered in two volumes - Structural Analysis I and II. Structural Analysis I deals with the basics of structural analysis, measurements of deflection, various types of deflections, loads and influence lines, etc.
