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.
