Eurocodes, Third Edition Fiona Cobb Consulting Engineer, UK

Now in its third edition, the Structural Engineer’s Pocket Book remains a comprehensive pocket reference guide for professional and student structural engineers, particularly those taking the IStructE Part 3 exam. The combination of tables, data, facts, formulae, and rules of thumb make it an invaluable aid in scheme design for structural engineers in the office, in transit, or on site. By bringing together data from many different sources, this pocket book is a compact source of job-simplifying information at an affordable price. It acts as a reliable first point of reference and saves valuable time otherwise spent trying to track down information that is needed on a daily basis. Concise and precise, this third edition is updated to reflect the industry changeover to the Eurocodes which are used and referenced throughout. Chapters cover all the main structural materials as well as providing basic design data and information on environmental sustainability. The Eurocodes use considerable notation and symbols. The front and back covers include fold-out leaves which summarise the most commonly used symbols for easy reference alongside the main text. This heavily revised, third edition is not "yet another guide to the Eurocodes." It is intended as a day-to-day reference and hopes to satisfy a number of different groups of engineers in the transition from British Standards to Eurocodes. Catalog no.

Introduction to Structural Analysis Displacement and Force Methods S. T. Mau California State University, Northridge, USA

"This book has two important features that make it unique. Both the force and displacement methods of analysis are given equal emphasis, and the matrix method is introduced at a very early stage. While the force method is important for students to learn how structures behave, the displacement method on which the matrix method is based has indubitable practical significance. Dr. Mau has done a superb job in espousing both theory and practice in his textbook." —Eric Lui, Syracuse University, New York, USA

This indispensable textbook is designed to bridge 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. • Explains complicated analysis using simplified methods and numerous examples • Provides an understanding of the underlying methodologies of finite element analysis • Includes a matrix operations tutorial and supplementary review notes as appendices • Contains more than 500 illustrations to supplement the text

Today, the web of structural mechanics is so finely woven that it hides the role of experience in design, leading to high levels of risk. An exploration of essential design and construction details of safe structures, this book explains how buildings and bridges resist gravity, wind, and earthquake loads. Employing an interactive presentation of topics, it spans elementary concepts, from force in trusses to bending of beams and the response of multi-story, multi-bay frames. This book features free access to GOYA software, which runs easily on JAVA-enabled systems. Developed by the authors to improve understanding of structures through repetition, GOYA enables readers to solve problems of increasing complexity with relative ease, thereby expediting the process of safe structure 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. A thoroughly written and practical book on the topic, this volume comprehensively presents current optimization strategies. 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, particularly with respect to seismic forces.

Problem Solving for Engineers David G. Carmichael University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia

"Problem solving and systems are given a very broad perspective, encompassing key engineering tasks such as design, investigation, decision making and optimization. ...the examples and exercises make it an easy-to-read book. The exercises are not merely drill type ones, but also ones that make the reader think – this is to be commended..." ––Priyan Dias, Senior Professor, University of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka, Associate Editor, Civil Engineering & Environmental Systems

This book takes a systematic approach to problem definition, generation of alternative solutions, analysis, and selection of the preferred solution. The book introduces some fundamental terms needed to think systematically and undertake systematic problem solving. It covers both individual and group problem solving.

Modelling is a vital part of all engineering design, yet many hydraulic engineers are not fully aware of the assumptions involved in the process. These assumptions can have important consequences when choosing the best model to inform design decisions. This book helps identify the most appropriate form of analysis for the hydraulic engineering application in question. The book also provides guidance on the range of accuracy to be expected of the model simulations and how they should be related to the prototype. Applications to models include open channel systems, closed conduit flows, storm drainage systems, estuaries, coastal and near shore structures, and hydraulic structures. Catalog no.
