• Enables the student to obtain a thorough understanding of the techniques available to analyze and predict stress in any structure.
• Provides a clear explanation of theory applied to real structures/practical situations.
• Well-supported by worked examples and problems throughout.
• Wealth of practical, real-life examples reinforce learning and demonstrate the subject's practical relevance.
• Addresses the needs of today's mathematically poor undergraduates by covering extra introductory material.
• Written in readable, accessible style which is less theoretical than competitive texts.
