Matrix Method of Structural Analysis is an essential topic for all universities.
This book covers all important topics in 7 chapters. Chapter 1 Introduction, that explain the statics Indeterminacy and Kinematic Indeterminacy, chapter 2, Consistent Deformation and Slope Deflection Methods, Chapter 3 Flexibility Matrix Method: Structures Approach, Chapter 4 Stiffness Matrix Method: Structures Approach, Chapter 5 Flexibility Matrix Method: Element Approach, Chapter 6 Stiffness Matrix Method: Element Approach, And Chapter 7 Computer Programming Preliminaries. This Book will be a useful reading for student of civil engineering.
The readers of this book are familiar with consistent deformation and slope deflection methods of structural analysis. The systematic development of these methods to suit computers application gave rise to Matrix method of Structural Analysis. The development of consistent deformation method led to flexibility Matrix Method, while the development of slope deflection method led to Stiffness Matrix Method.
