This textbook provides students with an aid to consolidating understanding of the principles and applications of structural mechanics.  It is not a standard textbook, but a support for a main course text and/or lecture material.  Each chapter begins with a summary of essential theory, important facts, then relevant equations are presented and summarised in a Fact Sheet.  This is followed by a series of carefully paced and sequenced worked examples using real exam questions, with additional explanatory notes.  At the end of each chapter there are additional problems with answers given, for further problem-solving practice.  The text reinforces knowledge learnt in lectures and through companion textbooks, completes understanding, and helps in preparing for exams.

Structural Mechanics: Worked Examples is an ideal companion resource for undergraduate courses in Civil Engineering and Construction.  It works well alongside Hulse and Cain’s Structural Mechanics text, but can equally well be used alongside any other introductory textbook.
