Matrix methods of structural analysis are used for the analysis of the framed structures, i.e., structures composed of one-dimensional elements. Kindly consider the below mentioned most important reference books on matrix methods of structural analysis.
The solution procedures used in this method are systematic and general. Hence, it is easier to write computer programs using this method.
The matrix method of analysis is an important topic in the !eld of structural engineering. Proper knowledge in this area is necessary to understand advanced topics like !nite element method, structural dynamics, structural stability, etc.
The software available for the analysis of structures is developed using this method. Hence, it is necessary to have a background in this subject for the proper application of these software tools.
The method is carried out, using either a stiffness matrix or a flexibility matrix. “The flexibility method is not conducive to computer programming” – Weaver, Gere.
Kindly enroll in this free online course on matrix methods of structural analysis offered by NPTEL.
