Unique in approach and content, this book presents the theory of The Force method, explaining in detail the theoretical fundamentals of the method and exploring its application as a design/modeling tool also for large structures. The book covers truss element, beam element for beam and frame structures, quadrilateral and triangular elements for plates and shells, solid element for three-dimensional analysis. Examples of large structures and computer outputs are provided for the reader to formulate a qualitative understanding of outputs and simulations.
The Force Method together with the Explicit Finite Element Method, written by the same Author, represent a modern, comprehensive and powerful tool in advanced studies on structural analysis.
Thanks to the clarity of the exposition and to the basic principles enclosed in the book, it can be used for educational, research, industrial, and applied purposes.

The text can be used for educational, research, industrial and applied purposes.

Preface. Contents. The Truss Element. The Beam Element. The Quadrilateral Element. The Triangular Element. The Solid Element. The Connection of Elements.
