    Nowadays, engineers usually predict structural performance using computerised methods of analysis. Program availability for this task is an enormous boon — saving time and cost, as well as offering insights into behaviour, that used to be simply unimaginable. Nonetheless, there are dangers — exemplified by certain catastrophic failures — as a consequence of misuse. Structural engineers need to understand the basics of structural theory and how it has developed. This understanding both ensures that we realise the limitations in our analytical abilities and enables us to validate computer output effectively.

    This Text presents the fundamental thought processes of conceptual design and the basic principles that underpin all structural systems. These general processes and principles are applied to bridges, towers and low-rise, long-span structures. The essential interaction between selection of structural form and choice of structural material(s) is emphasised.
