This book is concerned with the static and dynamic analysis of structures. Specifi- cally, it uses the stiffness formulated matrix methods for use on computers to tackle some of the fundamental problems facing engineers in structural mechanics. This is done by covering the Mechanics of Structures, its rephrasing in terms of the Matrix Methods, and then their Computational implementation, all within a cohesivesetting. Although this book is designed primarily as a text for use at the upper-undergraduate and beginning graduate level, many practicing structural engineers will find it useful as a reference and self-study guide. Several dozen books on structural mechanics and as many on matrix methods are currently available. A natural question to ask is why another text? An odd devel- opment has occurred in engineering in recent years that can serve as a backdrop to why this book was written. With the widespread availability and use of comput- ers, today's engineers have on their desk tops an analysis capability undreamt of by previous generations. However, the ever increasing quality and range of capabilities of commercially available software packages has divided the engineering profession into two groups: a small group of specialist program writers that know the ins and outs of the coding, algorithms, and solution strategies; and a much larger group of practicing engineers who use the programs. It is possible for this latter group to use this enormous power without really knowing anything of its source.

MEDIA REVIEWS
` I recommend this book to both individuals and libraries. '
Applied Mechanics Review
' It will be an excellent reference work for postgraduates in appropriate disciplines as well as for the fundamental principles and computer methods that are used in the structural software package. ' Journal of Mech. Engineering Sciences 205 1992
