Structural Engineering Introduction to Structural Analysis

Damage to Concrete Structures

Displacement and Force Methods

Geert De Schutter

S.T. Mau

This bridges the gap between engineering practice and education. Acknowledging the fact that virtually all computer structural analysis programs are based on the matrix displacement method of analysis, the author begins with the displacement method and then introduces the force method of analysis. The book also shows how these methods are applied, particularly to trusses and to beams and rigid frames. Other topics include influence lines, non-prismatic members, composite structures, secondary stress analysis, and the limits of linear and static structural analysis.

This book summarizes the state-of-the-art information on the degradation of concrete structures, and gives a clear and comprehensive overview of what can go wrong. Presented in an easyto-understand, pedagogical way, the book describes the different causes of damage to concrete, including inappropriate design, errors during execution, mechanisms occurring during hardening of concrete, and actions or degradation mechanisms during service life (hardened concrete). The degradation mechanisms are illustrated with numerous real-world examples and many drawings and photographs taken of actual structures.

• Bridges the gap between what is traditionally taught in classrooms and what is actually practiced in engineering firms

Series: Structural Engineering: Mechanics and Design

Today’s biggest structural engineering challenge is to design stronger structures, and a key issue is the need to take an integrated approach that balances control of costs with the requirement for withstanding earthquakes and other dynamic forces. Structural optimization is based on rigorous mathematical formulation and requires computation algorithms for sizing structural elements and synthesizing systems. Illustrated with sufficient examples of the design of elements and systems and presenting descriptions of the process and results, it places strong emphasis on dynamic loading. Catalog no.
