Braced frameworks are a particular type of construction that has application in almost every branch of engineering. The book also explains the statically determinate trusses and redundant trusses. Secondary stresses and the failure of braced frameworks are also addressed. This text lastly describes the design of a braced framework to perform certain specified functions. This book will be very useful to students engaged in various branches of engineering since the ideas incorporated in this book are applicable to all kinds of structural systems.
