A primary aim of this book since its first publication in 1998 has been to develop and present basic structural concepts in an easily understood manner using “building” examples and illustrations to supplement the text. Much of this material has been “field tested,” revised, and modified over the course of 40 years of teaching, and it will continue to be modified in the future. There was a great temptation to add many new topical areas to this revision, but I decided to keep this book focused primarily on statics and strength of materials.
