For courses in structural analysis. This ISBN is for the Pearson eText access card. Teach students to develop their intuition and the habit of evaluating their results Structural Analysis: Skills for Practice encourages engineering students to develop their intuition and the habit of evaluating the reasonableness of structural analysis results. The author presents examples and homework problems that incorporate a consistent thought process structure--guess, calculate, and evaluate their results--helping students develop the metacognitive skill of thinking about their own thought process. The text presents content not seen in other structural analysis books that students need to know to pass their licensure exam, and frames ideas in the context of how they will apply it on the job. Drawing upon the evaluation skills gathered from a six year project with experienced structural engineers, Hanson's Structural Analysis helps students learn skills to transition from novice to expert faster and become more competent in their careers.
