The theory of statically indeterminate beam systems is initially presented, with the solution of numerous examples and the plotting of the corresponding diagrams of axial force, shearing force, and bending moment. For the framed structures, approached on the basis of the method of displacements, automatic computational procedures, normally involving the use of computers, are introduced in both the static and the dynamic regimes. The mechanics of linear elastic plates and shells are then studied adopting a matrix for- emulation, which is particularly useful for numerical applications. The kinematic, static, and constitutive equations, once composed, provide an operator equation that has as its unknown the generalized displacement vector.
