Structural Analysis: Using Classical and Matrix Methods, 4th Edition
October 2006, ©2007
In addition to modern matrix methods, the author has included in this edition several of the classical methods because they give the student knowledge of the behavior of structures subject to varying loading. Students will develop a thorough understanding of the behavior of structural systems under load as they are introduced to the fundamentals of structural analysis for beams, trusses, and frames. The following classical methods are included in this edition: influence lines, conjugate-beam analysis for deflections, and approximate methods and moment distribution for statically indeterminate structures.
The availability of computational software has completely changed the practical application of structural analysis. Instead of applying classical methods, engineers often use computer programs prepared with matrix methods. For this reason, the educational version of the SAP2000 software, as well as the author-developed SABLE software, are available for download from the book website.
This text is suitable for the undergraduate level course. However, sufficient information is included for an additional course at the senior or graduate level.

Professor McCormac belongs to the American Society of Civil Engineers and served as the principal civil engineering grader for the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying for many years.
The load sections of Chapters 2 and 3 have been revised to conform to ASCE Standard 7-02 as well as to the International Building Code of 2003.
The matrix chapters (Chapters 22-25) have been complete revised and substantially expanded.
Most of the homework problems have been revised, and the number of homework problems has been substantially increased.
Classical methods (influence lines, conjugate-beam analysis for deflections, and approximate methods and moment distribution for statically indeterminate structures) are included in this edition.
SAP2000: The student version of a commercial structural analysis computational program commonly used in industry, SAP2000, is available for download from the book website.
SABLE32 (Structural Analysis and Behavior for Learning Engineering): This program was developed by Jack McCormac and Jim Nelson to introduce students to software for structural analysis, and to provide a tool to better obtain an understanding of structural behavior. Sable is available for download from the book website.
Matrix methods have been expanded to include a finite element formulation.
