Theory of Matrix Structural Analysisby J S Przemieniecki
Synopses & ReviewsPublisher Comments:This pioneering aerospace engineering text belongs on the shelf of every aerospace and structural engineering graduate student and professional engineer. Originally published in 1968, the treatment remains a valuable guide, tracing each procedure in a clear, stepbystep fashion and employing minimal mathematical rigor in its examples. The text begins with an overview of matrix methods and their application to the structural design of modern aircraft and aerospace vehicles. Subsequent chapters cover the basic equations of elasticity, energy theorems, structural idealization, Castigliano's theorem, derivation of stiffness matrices from flexibility, and constantshearflow panels. Additional subjects include a comparison of force and displacement methods, analysis of substructures, structural synthesis, and nonlinear structural analysis. Abundant endofchapter supplements provide materials for classroom use. Synopsis:Pioneering text unsurpassed in the treatment of many topics; available first time in paperback. Invaluable for structural engineers and graduate students. 170 illus. Synopsis:Classic text covers basic equations of elasticity, energy theorems, structural idealization, a comparison of force and displacement methods, analysis of substructures, structural synthesis, nonlinear structural analysis, and other topics. 1968 edition.
About the AuthorJohn Przemieniecki was a professor and Associate Dean for Research at the U.S. Air Force Institute of Technology and a member of the U.S. Senior Executive Service. President Reagan conferred upon him the rank of Distinguished Executive, and in 1999 he received an honorary doctorate from the Warsaw University of Technology. Table of ContentsPREFACE
