This text contains notes, worked examples, and solutions to tutorial questions that have been developed over a period of many years as a learning aid for undergraduate students studying Civil Engineering and/or Structural Engineering. Much of the material forms the basis for teaching within ENG469 Structural Analysis at Charles Darwin University (CDU), while the other material is similar in nature to that taught in Units in the earlier years of the BEng Degree in Civil Engineering at CDU. The text will be a useful learning and revision aid to students studying similar courses at other Universities in Australia and elsewhere.
The production and format of this document have been developed from notes developed over many years, and have incorporated helpful suggestions from past students. This approach to teaching "difficult" material to students has attracted favourable comments from students and academic staff alike.
