As with the first edition, this textbook provides a clear introduction to the fundamental theory of structural analysis as applied to vehicles, aircraft, spacecraft, automobiles, and ships. The emphasis is on the application of fundamental concepts of structural analysis in everyday engineering practice. No assumptions are made with regard to the method of analysis. All approximations are accompanied by a full explanation of their validity. Repetition is an important learning tool, and so some redundancy appears to dispel misunderstanding. The number of topics covered in detail is limited to those essential for modern structural engineering practice. In this new edition, more topics, figures, examples, and exercises have been added. A primary change has been a greater emphasis on the finite element methods of analysis. Three new chapters are now included, and clarity remains the hallmark of this text.

Martin J. Wiener is the Mary Jones Professor of History at Rice University. His previous books include Between Two Worlds: The Political Thought of Graham Wallas (1971), English Culture and the Decline of the Industrial Spirit (1980), and Reconstructing the Criminal (1990).
