Many of the modern methods of structural analysis based on concepts
of virtual work and energy were developed and popularised in Italy
in the latter half of the nineteenth century. Building on the work
of Luigi Menabrea, the mathematician Carlo Alberto Castigliano
(1847-84) provided the first full proof of these methods in his
1873 dissertation while based in Turin. Equally important was his
popularisation of the theory in his Theorie de l'equilibre des
systemes elastiques et ses applications (1879), in which he applied
his theory to a wide range of important real-world cases. The work
is here reissued in its 1919 English translation, by the consulting
engineer and lecturer Ewart S. Andrews. Castigliano covers the
basic theory of elastic stresses, introducing useful
approximations; he then moves on to the analysis of real
structures, including roof trusses, arches and bridges in both iron
