Preface to Advanced Methods of Structural Analysis by Igor A. Karnovsky and Olga Lebed

Idea of the engineering buildings is a basic science. Statements and strategies of this science are broadly utilized in completely different fields of engineering.

Amongst them are the civil engineering, ship-building, plane, robotics, area buildings, in addition to quite a few buildings of particular sorts and functions – bridges, towers, and many others.

In recent times, even micromechanical units develop into objects of structural evaluation. Idea of the engineering buildings is alive and is a really vigorous science.

This concept gives an engineer-designer an enormous assortment of classical strategies of evaluation of varied sorts of buildings.

These strategies comprise in-depth basic concepts and, at the moment, they’re developed with adequate completeness and commonness, aligned in a well-composed system of conceptions, procedures, and algorithms, use fashionable mathematical methods and are dropped at elegant simplicity and perfection.

We now stay in a computerized world. A job and affect of fashionable engineering software program for evaluation of buildings can’t be overestimated.

The fashionable pc packages permit offering differing kinds of evaluation for any refined construction. As this takes place, what’s the function of classical concept of buildings with its in-depth concepts, outstanding conceptions, strategies, theorems, and ideas?

Realizing classical strategies of Structural Analysis is critical for any sensible engineer. An engineer can’t rely solely on the outcomes offered by a pc.

Pc is a superb assist in modeling completely different conditions and rushing up the method of calculations, however it’s the sole accountability of an engineer to test the outcomes obtained by a pc.

If customers of pc engineering software program don’t have adequate information of fundamentals of structural evaluation and of understanding of bodily theories and principal properties of buildings,

then he/she can’t test obtained numerical outcomes and their correspondence to an adopted design diagram, in addition to clarify outcomes obtained by a pc.

Pc packages “. . . could make a very good engineer higher, however it may well make a poor engineer extra harmful” (Prepare dinner R.D, Malkus D.S, Plesha M.E (1989) Ideas and functions of finite aspect evaluation, third edn. Wiley, New York).


Solely the information of basic concept of buildings permits to estimate and analyze numerical knowledge obtained from a pc; predict the habits of a construction consequently of altering a design diagram and parameters; design a construction which satisfies sure necessities;

carry out critical scientific evaluation; and make legitimate theoretical generalizations. Regardless of how refined the structural mannequin is,

irrespective of how efficient the numerical algorithms are, irrespective of how highly effective the computer systems are that implement these algorithms, it’s the engineer who analyzes the top end result produced from these algorithms.

Solely a person who has a deep information and understanding of the structural mannequin and evaluation methods can produce a qualitative evaluation.

In 1970, one of the authors of this Advanced Methods of Structural Analysis ebook was a professor at a structural engineering college in Ukraine. At the moment computer systems had been began to be applied in all fields of science, structural evaluation being one of them.

We, the professors and instructors, had been going through a critical methodical dilemma: given the brand new applied sciences, the way to correctly train the scholars?

Would we first give college students a powerful foundation in classical structural evaluation and then introduce them to the associated software program, or would we immediately dive into the software program after giving the scholar a comparatively insignificant introduction to classical evaluation.

We didn’t know the optimum means for fixing this downside. On this topic we’ve performed seminars and discussions regularly.

We now have used these two foremost instructing fashions, and many various variations of them. The end result was considerably stunning.


The scholars who had been first given a powerful basis in structural evaluation rapidly realized the way to use the pc software program, and had been in a position to give a very good qualitative evaluation of the outcomes.

The scholars who got a short introduction to structural evaluation and a powerful emphasis on the pc software program, on the finish weren’t in a position to present qualitative outcomes of the evaluation.

The attention-grabbing factor is that the scholars themselves had been criticizing the later instructing technique. Due to this fact, our imaginative and prescient of instructing structural evaluation is as follows:

on step one, it’s essential to study analytical strategies, carry out detailed evaluation of completely different buildings by hand with a view to really feel the habits of buildings, and correlate their habits with obtained outcomes; the second step is a pc software of engineering software program.

Authors wrote the Advanced Methods of Structural Analysis ebook on the premise of their a few years of expertise of instructing the Structural Analysis on the universities for graduate and postgraduate college students in addition to on the premise of their expertise in consulting corporations.

This Advanced Methods of Structural Analysis ebook is written for college kids of universities and schools pursuing Civil or Structural Engineering Applications, instructors of Structural Analysis, and engineers and designers of completely different buildings of fashionable engineering.

The target of the Advanced Methods of Structural Analysis ebook is to assist a reader to develop an understanding of the concepts and strategies of structural evaluation and to show a reader to estimate and clarify numerical outcomes obtained by hand;

this can be a basic stone for preparation of reader for numerical evaluation of buildings and to be used of engineering software program with full understanding.


The textbook gives the reader the elemental theoretical ideas of Structural Analysis, classical analytical strategies, algorithms of their software,

comparability of completely different strategies, and an enormous assortment of distinctive issues with their detailed resolution, clarification, evaluation, and dialogue of outcomes; many of the issues have a fancy character.

Thought-about examples exhibit options of buildings, their habits, and peculiarities of utilized strategies. Answer of all the issues is dropped at remaining components or quantity.

Analyses of the next buildings are thought-about: statically determinate and indeterminate multispan beams, arches, trusses, and frames.

These buildings are subjected to fastened and transferring masses, adjustments of temperature, settlement of helps, and errors of fabrication.

Additionally the cables are thought-about intimately. In lots of circumstances, similar construction below completely different exterior actions is analyzed.

It permits the reader to be focused on one design diagram and carry out complicated evaluation of habits of a construction.

In lots of circumstances, similar construction is analyzed by completely different strategies or by one technique in several types (for instance,

Displacement technique in canonical, and matrix types). It permits to carry out comparability evaluation of utilized strategies and see benefits and disadvantages of completely different strategies.
