There are lots of great material on Structural Mechanics subject in the internet, buts its always a challenge to figure out a ready list of top books on Structural Mechanics that one can refer to immediately. Even though online materials are good, but nothing can beat the depth of coverage that a book can offer. Hence, we researched the list of Structural Mechanics books which are used by students worldwide and came up with top 10 Book Recommendations on Structural Mechanics subject. These books can be used as a great starting point for anyone studying Structural Mechanics and can also be used as a ready reference for Under-Graduate and Post-Graduate programs.
Most of these Structural Mechanics books are also in the best-seller lists in Amazon website. We have added a brief description of these best books and have also included direct links to Amazon site (as affiliate). This allows anyone to directly visit the site and order printed copies of these best books.
Here is the full list of best reference books on Structural Mechanics.
|1. “Fundamentals of Structural Analysis” by H.H. West
Book Review: This book offers a very good presentation of the introductory and fundamental principles of structural analysis. The book also provides rigorous theoretical concepts as well as numerous problems that are used to demonstrate practical applications. The book also establishes a balance between realistic representations of structures and the sketches that are used in engineering practice. The examples and problems range from simple to challenging and are very useful to the readers.
|2. “Elementary Structural Analysis” by C.H. Norris, J.B. Wilbur and S. Utku
Book Review: This book is very suitable for courses in structural analysis which is mostly taught in the departments of civil engineering and aeronautical engineering. This book is very useful in teaching the students both the basics and theoretical aspects of structural analysis and structural behavior. The book also sets up a strong foundation in the field of elementary structural analysis and additionally the book also covers many new techniques in the field of systematic analysis using matrices and machine computations.
|3. “Basic Structural Analysis” by C.S. Reddy
Book Review: This book presents the readers with structural analysis with the help of matrix and classic methods. Method analysis is done using matrix formulation and computation techniques that are solved through matrix method. The book also contains various problems, questions and examples on uniform and varying loads, point loads, rotation support and many more. The book also provides computer programs with needed flowcharts and diagrams. The book contains chapters on plane and space trusses, rolling loads and influence lines.
|4. “Structural Analysis” by Russell C. Hibbeler
Book Review: This book provides the readers with a clear understanding of the theory and application of structural analysis and deals with the applications of trusses, beams and frames. The book focuses on both modeling and analysis of structure. The author has BS and MS degree in civil engineering from university of Illinois and northwestern university. The author also has worked on reactor safety and analysis and currently teaches at the university of Louisiana.
