Written by authors who have considerable teaching experience, this book features: a 'recipe' format that allow chapters to be read independently and out of sequence; extra learning support from an associated website with regularly updated content; and, practical examples to help bridge the gap between theory and practice. Over twenty structural concepts are illustrated using physical models and engineering examples. Each concept is covered with a succinct summary, followed by examples and consideration of its theoretical basis. Demonstration models are presented using photographs to enable the concept to be visualised. Examples are given to show how the concept is used in practice, and in some cases the verification and applications of the concept are discussed further. The authors also maintain a companion website to this book."@en ;
