High Level[edit]

Advanced Structural Analysis contains two main sections: Part I - Theory and Part II - Application. The idea is that Part I - Theory provides the foundation for the analysis described in Part II - Application. Ideally, all the reasoning described in Part II - Application should stem from and refer to statements in Part I - Theory.

Furthermore, the global structure should, if possible, comply with the following concepts:

  • "All-encompassing" - all matters related to structural analysis should be covered as thoroughly as possible
  • Non-repetitive - a non-redundant layout where efforts are focused and not repeated
  • Stringent - the topics should be organized in a logical sequence where the foundation for each section is established previous sections
  • Categorized - natural groupings of content
  • Transparent - the branch-like architecture should be intuitively understood and easy to browse
  • Concise - a minimal amount of excessive material
  • Maintainable - an untangled structure where things can be added without major structural changes

Part I - Theory[edit]

Specific principles, key-points and recommendations should be highlighted like the following example:

\sigma = \frac {F}{A} 

Part II - Application[edit]
