This book provides a methodology for analyzing statically determinate structures. It is aimed at students of civil, mechanical, aeronautical and maritime engineering as well as those interested in structural analysis.
The book is composed of two parts: (1) a general introduction to the analysis of structures and the evaluation of the different loads that can be applied, and (2) a description of the analysis methods of statically determinate structures.
Each chapter includes a general introduction, the theory of the proposed method, the numerical treatment of some examples and a concluding summary. It provides clear teaching objectives for the topics included and, at the end of each chapter, a series of problems to help the student master the method of analysis.
1. Introduction to Structural Analysis.

10. Influence Lines.
Salah Khalfallah is Professor at the National Polytechnic School of Constantine (ENPC), Algeria. He teaches Continuum Mechanics, Mechanical Vibrations and Finite Element Methods. His research is focused on the analysis of the nonlinear behavior of structures, the dynamics of soil–structure interactions and, since his transfer to the ENPC, biomechanics.
