This second volume on structural analysis describes analysis methods for statically indeterminate structures. It is intended for students of civil and mechanic domains seeking to acquire and improve their knowledge of these methods.

This book covers various methods of analysis, including the method of three moments, the method of forces, the slope-deflection method, the moment-distribution method, influence lines and the analysis of statically indeterminate arches.

Each chapter includes a general introduction, the theory of the proposed method, the numerical treatment of some examples and a concluding summary. It provides clear teaching objectives for the topics included and, at the end of each chapter, a series of problems to help the student master the method of analysis.

About the authors

Salah Khalfallah is Professor at the National Polytechnic School of Constantine (ENPC), Algeria. He teaches Continuum Mechanics, Mechanical Vibrations and Finite Element Methods. His research is focused on the analysis of the nonlinear behavior of structures, the dynamics of soil–structure interactions and, since his transfer to the ENPC, biomechanics.
