Procedures for Analysis, in most sections of the text, along
with example problems illustrating the Procedures, provide a logical,
step-by-step method for students to follow when applying the theory
presented in each section.

Extensive homework problems depict realistic engineering
situations that students are likely to encounter in engineering practice.
Problems are clearly illustrated to show the necessary geometric relations
and loads.

Over 150 example problems demonstrate the application of
theory to practical engineering problems. Examples are explained and
illustrated to highlight important features of the geometry, and loads.

Answers to selected problems are provided at the back of
the book.
