About the BookContent

This book is intended for a beginner with elementary knowledge of structural mechanics
and Fortran Programming. Stiffness and flexibility methods are commonly known as matrix
methods. Of these, the stiffness method using member approach is amenable to computer
programming and is widely used for structural analysis.
The emphasis in the book is on explaining basic fundamentals of this approach and on
developing programs. This is achieved through extremely simple style of presentation in lucid
language and proceeding in stages from simple to complex structures. Unified theory with
a single complex program is totally avoided. Instead, each skeletal structure is discussed
in a separate chapter with simple, short and transparent program. Theory is presented in
matrix notations along with clear mention of scalar components for proper understanding
of the physical quantities. Illustrative solved examples explain data preparation, data file
and interpretation of the results. Alternate possibilities of data preparation are mentioned
and used. The information about data generation, skyline storage, variable dimensioning
and frontal technique is intentionally presented separately at a later stage to help reader in
modifying initial simple programs.
The treatment of flexibility and direct stiffness method is limited to introduction of elementary
concepts. Transfer matrix method, plastic analysis by stiffness method and sub-structure
method are included as additional topics of interest. A chapter is devoted to present an
alternate view of stiffness method as a variational approach. Non-linear structural behaviour
and techniques commonly adopted to evaluate non-linear response are discussed. Formulae
for displacements in beams and restraining actions are included in Appendices A and B.
Appendix C discusses various methods of solution of simultaneous algebraic equations.
Exercises are included at the end of each chapter.
The book will be useful to undergraduate and postgraduate civil engineering students and
also to those preparing for competitive examinations.
