  • Structural Dynamics in Industryby Alain Girard; Nicolas Roy

    Wiley 2010; US$ 268.00

    Structural Dynamics in Industry focuses on the behavior of structures subjected to a vibrational or shock environment. It takes a systematic approach to the basic concepts in order to enhance the reader's understanding and to allow industrial structures to be covered with the necessary degree of depth. The developments are explained with a minimum... more...

  • Constitutive Modeling of Soils and Rocksby Pierre-Yves Hicher; Jian-Fu Shao

    Wiley 2013; US$ 273.00

    This title provides a comprehensive overview of elastoplasticity relating to soil and rocks. Following a general outline of the models of behavior and their internal structure, each chapter develops a different area of this subject relating to the author's particular expertise. The first half of the book concentrates on the elastoplasticity of soft... more...

  • Materials with Rheological Propertiesby Constantin Cristescu

    Wiley 2010; US$ 191.00

    Materials with Rheological Properties presents the evolution of the mathematical models used to calculate the resistance structures and the conditions which enable progress to be made in this field. The author presents equations describing the behavior of each possible type of resistance structure (with discrete collaboration, continuous collaboration... more...

  • Finite-Elemente-Methoden im Stahlbauby Rolf Kindmann; Matthias Kraus

    Wiley 2008; US$ 75.00

    Die Finite-Elemente-Methode (FEM) bildet heute in der Praxis der Bauingenieure ein Standardverfahren zur Berechnung von Tragwerken. Nach einer Einführung in die Methodik konzentriert sich das Buch auf die Ermittlung von Schnittgrößen, Verformungen, Verzweigungslasten und Eigenformen für Stahlkonstruktionen. Neben linearen Berechnungen... more...

  • Building Physics -- Heat, Air and Moistureby Hugo S. L. Hens

    Wiley 2012; US$ 85.00

    Bad experiences with construction quality, the energy crises of 1973 and 1979, complaints about 'sick buildings', thermal, acoustical, visual and olfactory discomfort, the move towards more sustainability, have all accelerated the development of a field, which until 35 years ago was hardly more than an academic exercise: building physics. Through... more...

  • The History of the Theory of Structuresby Karl-Eugen Kurrer; Ekkehard Ramm

    Wiley 2012; US$ 168.00

    This book traces the evolution of theory of structures and strength of materials - the development of the geometrical thinking of the Renaissance to become the fundamental engineering science discipline rooted in classical mechanics. Starting with the strength experiments of Leonardo da Vinci and Galileo, the author examines the emergence of individual... more...

  • Bemessung von Befestigungen in Betonby Thilo Pregartner

    Wiley 2012; US$ 50.50

    Die Bemessung von Befestigungen mit Dübeln und Kopfbolzen in Beton wird in der Praxis häufig mit Computerprogrammen der Hersteller realisiert. Mit diesen Programmen sind die einfache Bemessung für unterschiedliche Randbedingungen, die Auswahl des optimalen Befestigungselementes und die Maximierung des Auslastungsgrades möglich.... more...

  • Introduction to Tunnel Constructionby David Chapman; Nicole Metje; Alfred Stärk

    Taylor and Francis 2010; US$ 179.95

    Tunnelling provides a robust solution to a variety of engineering challenges. It is a complex process, which requires a firm understanding of the ground conditions as well as structural issues. This book covers the whole range of areas that you need to know in order to embark upon a career in tunnelling. It also includes a number of case studies... more...

  • Ground Improvement By Deep Vibratory Methodsby Klaus Kirsch; Fabian Kirsch

    CRC Press 2010; US$ 154.95

    Vibro compaction and vibro stone columns are the two dynamic methods of soil improvement most commonly used worldwide. These methods have been developed over seventy years and are now in a position of unrivalled importance amongst modern foundation measures. The first works on granular soil by densification, and the second is used to displace and reinforce... more...

  • Unsaturated Soilsby E. J. Murray; V. Sivakumar

    Wiley 2010; US$ 119.00

    An understanding of the mechanical properties of unsaturated soils is crucial for geotechnical engineers worldwide, as well as to those concerned with the interaction of structures with the ground. This book deals principally with fine-grained clays and silts, or soils containing coarser sand and gravel particles but with a significant percentage of... more...
