Details: Product Description Master the basic principles of structural analysis using the classical approach found in Kassimali's distinctive STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS, 6th Edition. This edition presents concepts in a logical order, progressing from an introduction of each topic to an analysis of statically determinate beams, trusses and rigid frames, and then to the analysis of statically indeterminate structures. Practical, solved problems integrated throughout the presentation help illustrate and clarify the book's fundamental concepts, while the latest examples and timely content reflect today's most current professional standards. For further support, you can download accompanying interactive software for analyzing plane framed structures from this edition's companion website.
