R.C. Hibbeler graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana with a BS in Civil Engineering (major in Structures) and an MS in Nuclear Engineering. He obtained his PhD in Theoretical and Applied Mechanics from Northwestern University. Hibbelerrsquo;s professional experience includes postdoctoral work in reactor safety and analysis at Argonne National Laboratory, and structural work at Chicago Bridge and Iron, as well as Sargent and Lundy in Tucson. He has practiced engineering in Ohio, New York, and Louisiana. Hibbeler currently teaches at the University of Louisiana, Lafayette. In the past he has taught at the University of Illinois at Urbana, Youngstown State University, Illinois Institute of Technology, and Union College.

NEW--Approximately 15% NEW problems
Example problems demonstrate the application of theory to practical engineering problems
NEW--Project Problems that involve realistic structural systems. These projects will give the user a sense of what is required to model and then analyze an actual structure
Photographs of the structure will be given
The determination of the loads will be required
The members will have to be represented by an idealized model
The theory will be applied to obtain the reactions and construct the shear and moment diagrams
NEW--Over 100 photographs dispersed throughout the book present the solution of realistic applications and explanations of the theory. Some of these photos are used in the problem sets
NEW--Expands Chapter 1 on loadings to include a more detailed discussion of loadings
NEW--Includes a simple analysis of shear wall loadings
NEW--Enhances the use of the computer program STRAN from previous editions to include the construction of shear and moment diagrams for frames. The program is easy to understand and use, and works in a Windows environment, rather than in DOS
NEW--Expanded coverage of the matrix stiffness method
NEW--Uses STRAN, or any other suitable structural analysis program, as a means to check the solutions of the problems. This encourages the student to consider computer applications earlier in the course, rather than at the end, when the Stiffness Method is covered
Features exceptional illustrations, photographs, and design elements to enhance the realism of examples
Includes Procedures for Analysis in most sections of the text, along with example problems illustrating the procedures, to provide a logical, method to follow when applying the theory presented in each section
