This textbook really helped me to learn structures. The book was easy to read and understand with pleanty of pictures along the way for visual representations of the concepts involved. Each step was clearly stated and explained. The example problems were very helpful and mostly easy to follow. Overall, a good engineering structures text.

This one's a keeper. I bought it for P.E. exam review, which it is very good for, but also good as an introduction to Structural Analysis. Up to date issue. Easy to read and understand, excellent example and practice problems. A nice book. The reviews I read on it were good compared to others. Glad I bought it.

This book is really good. The explanations of the theories are very detailed and understandable. The sample problems are throughly explained and similar to homework problems and the book is laid out very well. I recommend this book to anyone taking structural analysis.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By beebee on December 21, 2012
Format: Hardcover
Hibbeler's text on structural analysis generally contains many and helpful example problems throughout the text that do relate to homework problems at the end of the chapters, and all but a few of the problems have answers at the end of the book (I only missed two points out of 200 on homeworks because we could always check answers!). I have found a few, but minor mistakes in the answers, usually involving incorrect units in answers. There is no way I could have done well in the class without the well-developed example problems. The course TA using this book should have a complete solutions guide to the book where students can get help if they can't come up with the answer in the back of the book for a problem. Don't order the international edition of this book - I did and later ordered the expensive US edition because of the hassle of dealing with the purely SI unit international edition.

Format: Hardcover
Overall, it appears to be a useful book. However, it frequently skips steps in examples and assumes that the reader understands what is going on. It could use better explanations and having less "fluff" in the text. More example problems needed.

This book is written in a format that is easy to follow and understand, examples are plenty and explained well. Includes plenty of problems to work through; this is one of the few books were I can't say that the problems are much harder/different than the given examples because the basic fundamentals and steps applied to an example will solve any problem in the chapter.

By C.J. Wilkes on September 17, 2013

After about a good week of solid programming and scratching my head I've finally managed to add the requisite Matrix Analysis to my Truss Calculator. Thank-you R.C. Hibbeler for your Structural Analysis text on the subject (ch. 14 - 16), if the subject had not clearly laid out in front of me I would never have figured out the numerous steps to arrive at the solutions.

Here is an example of the output of my matrix analyzer for the Fink truss:

[...]

I've even inserted the correct code to account for the additional loading/moments if there are overhangs. I double checked my work by modeling up identical trusses (beams and trusses members) in both Strand7 and Solidworks (COSMOS/Simulator). My result were within 1.5% or better, so I'm really happy about that.
