Berkeley, CA, February 26, 2004 – Computers and Structures, Inc., is pleased to release the latest revision to Dynamics of Structures, 2nd Edition by Professors Clough and Penzien. A classic, this definitive textbook has been popular with educators worldwide for nearly 30 years. This release has been updated by the original authors to reflect the latest approaches and techniques in the field of structural dynamics for civil engineers.
During the past 50 years, Drs. Ray Clough and Joseph Penzien have earned pre-eminence in the engineering community, dedicating their academic lives to improving the understanding of how structures behave when subjected to nature's forces. This 700-page book represents the culmination of that work. It introduces topics suitable for advanced undergraduate students and progresses through more advanced topics, such as non-deterministic analysis of earthquake response, appropriate for the graduate student and practicing engineer.
This book belongs on every engineer’s shelf. Historically, few books in structural engineering have had as much influence on expanding the knowledge base in structural engineering. With this revision, the book remains an extraordinary tool for those teaching structural dynamics and a timely reference for those in professional practice.
Volume and educational pricing are available through Computers and Structures, Inc.
