T.H.G. Megson is a professor emeritus with the Department of Civil Engineering at Leeds University (UK).
"I would like to show my appreciation for T.H.G. Megson's book on the subject of Structural and Stress Analysis. I was having difficulty grasping this subject at uni but this book explains and shows worked examples from the basic concepts. I would also like to thank the publishers for providing an excellent online solution manual for free unlike most..." - Elsevier website customer feedback
