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.

    • David Lilley graduated with a BSc in Civil Engineering from University of Bristol (UK) in 1977 and obtained
      a PhD in Engineering from Bristol in 1983. He taught analysis and design of structures at the University of
      Newcastle upon Tyne (UK) from 1982 until 2009, when he was appointed to the Chair of Structural Engineering
      at Charles Darwin University in Darwin, Australia.

      He is a Fellow of the Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE), Institution of Civil Engineers, Institution of
      Mechanical Engineers, as well as the Institution of Engineers Australia. He was a member of IStructE Council
      (2002-2011), Chairman of IStructE Northern Counties Branch (2002-2004 and 2006-2008), and was awarded a
      Centenary Service Award by IStructE in 2008, and a Lewis Kent Award in 2012.

      He also has considerable experience working as a consultant in support of commercial and government organisations in both Australia and the UK.
