Introduction
1011100IntroductionThe widespread use of personal computers, which have the power to solve problems solvable in the past only on mainframe computers, has influenced the tabulated format of this book. Computer programs for structural analysis, employing techniques such as the finite element method and the boundary element method, are also available for general use. These programs are very powerful; however, in many cases, elements of structural systems can be analyzed quite effectively independently without the need for an elaborate finite element model. In some instances, finite element models or programs are verified by comparing their solutions with the results given in a book such as this. Contained within this boo…
