In the past, the main difficulties in structural analysis lay in the solution process; now model development is a fundamental issue that is nevertheless largely ignored in existing textbooks. This book sets out basic principles for structural analysis modelling, discusses a basic process for using modern structural analysis software, and provides guidance for the modelling of structures with emphasis on linear elastic analysis of frame structures. It provides essential reference material for practising engineers and for learners, which was not previously collected together in a single volume and some of the content is unavailable in any other source.2.2.2 Estimate results before you analyse Some designers advise that if you do not have a good estimate of the likely values of the results before you do an analysis then you are not competent for the work. This is an extreme view since withanbsp;...
