Structural Analysis by Felix Udeyo is intended to teach students the methods and techniques for the analysis of structures. This textbook is designed for upper-level undergraduates studying civil engineering, construction engineering and management, and architecture. It is also useful for construction professionals seeking licensure in their field of practice.
The objective of these modules is to introduce various concepts of solid mechanics and finite element analysis to interested Engineering students. As solid mechanics borrows many of its ideas from linear analysis, I have included an introductory section on linear algebra with the hopes that a student would differentiate between pure “Mathematical” and “Physical” concepts.
With “Sustainability: A Comprehensive Foundation”, first and second-year college students are introduced to this expanding new field, comprehensively exploring the essential concepts from every branch of knowledge – including engineering and the applied arts, natural and social sciences, and the humanities.
The goals of this textbook are to help students acquire the technical skills of using software and managing a database, and develop research skills of collecting data, analyzing information and presenting results.
Today’s infrastructure systems are rapidly changing, becoming more web-based, interconnected and transnational, while new technologies are on their way. This open course examines these challenges and includes case studies on sustainable energy, smart grids, and water scarcity.
Transportation moves people and goods from one place to another using a variety of vehicles across different infrastructure systems. This book is aimed at undergraduate civil engineering students, though the material may provide a useful review for practitioners.
