Emphasizes the matrix formulation of the equations that describe the response of statically indeterminate systems, and it also provides an introduction to plastic analysis, approximate methods of analysis, and structural dynamics for seismic applications. Implements a modern approach which integrates theory and computational analysis to solve a wide-range of civil engineering structures for vertical and lateral loads.
