Abstract:

The book deals with applications of high-speed electronic computers to structural mechanics. The information required to understand the operating principles, potential, and methods of utilizing the electronic computers is given in brief form it is shown how even an elementary method for using computers application of general mathematical standard routines permits a new approach to the solution of many complex problems in structural mechanics. Considerable space is devoted in the book to a general algorithm for automating the design of any plane rod system using the method of forces. The design of bar systems by computer for natural and forced oscillations, stability, and stable strength is discussed. The book is intended for workers at design and scientific-research organizations in the field of construction, as well as for teachers, graduate students, and students in departments of civil engineering.
