Preface to the SI Edition: This edition of Structural Analysis has been adapted to incorporate the International System of Units (Le Syste`me International d’Unite´s or SI) throughout the book. Amit Prashant wishes to acknowledge the contributions made by his colleagues, Arindam Dey, and Kaustubh Dasgupta to this SI Edition.

Le Syste`me International d’Unite´s The United States Customary System (USCS) of units uses FPS (foot-poundsecond) units (also called English or Imperial units). SI units are primarily the units of the MKS (meter-kilogram-second) system. However, CGS (centimetergram-second) units are often accepted as SI units, especially in textbooks.

Using SI Units in this Book
In this book, we have used both MKS and CGS units. USCS units or FPS units used in the US Edition of the book have been converted to SI units throughout the text and problems. However, in case of data sourced from handbooks, government standards, and product manuals, it is not only extremely dificult to convert all values to SI, it also encroaches upon the intellectual property of the source. Also, some quantities such as the ASTM grain size number and Jominy distances are generally computed in FPS units and would lose their relevance if converted to SI. Some data in figures, tables, examples, and references, therefore, remains in FPS units. For readers unfamiliar with the relationship between the FPS and the SI systems, conversion tables have been provided inside the front and back covers of the book.

To solve problems that require the use of sourced data, the sourced values can be converted from FPS units to SI units just before they are to be used in a calculation. To obtain standardized quantities and manufacturers’ data in SI units, the readers may contact the appropriate government agencies or authorities in their countries/regions.

Instructor Resources
A Printed Instructor’s Solution Manual in SI units is available on request. An electronic version of the Instructor’s Solutions Manual, and PowerPoint slides of the figures from the SI text are available through www.cengage.com/engineering. The readers’ feedback on this SI Edition will be highly appreciated and will help us improve subsequent editions.

Preface: The objective of this book is to develop an understanding of the basic principles of structural analysis. Emphasizing the intuitive classical approach, Structural Analysis covers the analysis of statically determinate and indeterminate beams, trusses, and rigid frames. It also presents an introduction to the matrix analysis of structures.

The book is divided into three parts. Part One presents a general introduction to the subject of structural engineering. It includes a chapter devoted entirely to the topic of loads because attention to this important topic is generally lacking in many civil engineering curricula. Part Two, consisting of Chapters 3 through 10, covers the analysis of statically determinate beams, trusses, and rigid frames. The chapters on deflections (Chapters 6 and 7) are placed before those on influence lines (Chapters 8 and 9), so that influence lines for deflections can be included in the latter chapters. This part also contains a chapter on the analysis of symmetric structures (Chapter 10). Part Three of the book, Chapters 11 through 18, covers the analysis of statically indeterminate structures. The format of the book is flexible to enable instructors to emphasize topics that are consistent with the goals of the course.

Each chapter of the book begins with an introductory section defining its objective and ends with a summary section outlining its salient features. An important general feature of the book is the inclusion of step-by-step procedures for analysis to enable students to make an easier transition from theory to problem solving. Numerous solved examples are provided to illustrate the application of the fundamental concepts.

A computer program for analyzing plane framed structures is available on the publisher’s website www.cengage.com/engineering. This interactive software can be used to simulate a variety of structural and loading configurations and to determine cause versus e¤ect relationships between loading and various structural parameters, thereby enhancing the students’ understanding of the behavior of structures. The software shows deflected shapes of structures to enhance students’ understanding of structural response due to various types of loadings. It can also include the e¤ects of support settlements, temperature changes, and fabrication errors in the analysis. A solutions manual, containing complete solutions to over 600 text exercises, is also available for the instructor.

A NOTE ON THE REVISED EDITION
In this fourth edition, while the major features of the third editon have been retained, over 15 percent of the problems from the previous edition have been replaced with new ones. The chapter on loads has been revised to meet the provisions of the ASCE 7-05 Standard, and the treatment of the structures with internal hinges has been expanded in Chapter 3. The computer software has been upgraded to make it compatible with the latest versions of Microsoft Windows. Finally, most of the photographs have been replaced with new ones, and the page layout of the book has been redesigned to enhance clarity.
