This textbook presents the principal methods of stress analysis for the design of frame structures, beginning with a description of the basic criteria for probabilistic safety verification used in modern codes. The Force Method and the Displacement Method are dealt with, together with their applications to more common structural situations. A special chapter is dedicated to the second order analysis required for slender structures and for the elaboration of instability problems. In turn, a thorough set of numerical examples rounds out the text.
Given its scope, the book offers an ideal learning resource for students of Civil and Building Engineering and Architecture, and a valuable reference guide for practicing structural design professionals.

Giandomenico Toniolo was full professor of Structural Analysis and Design at Politecnico di Milano, Italy. Besides his academic tasks and a professional engagement as structural designer, he carried out a long activity in regulations and standards in Italy and Europe, joining the National Commission for Technical Standards for Constructions and also several committees of the European Committee for Standardization CEN such as CEN/TC250/SC2 for Eurocode 2 (concrete structures), CEN/TC250/SC8 for Eurocode 8 (seismic code), CEN/TC229 for precast concrete products. Within this latter committee he chaired for many years the WG1 on precast concrete structural products. He has been the coordinator of important European research projects on seismic design of concrete precast structures. He has also developed an extensive editorial activity by authoring many scientific works and a number of university textbooks.
