Structural engineering (General)

Most popular at the top

  • Thermo-Dynamics of Plates and Shellsby Jan Awrejcewicz; Anton V. Krysko; Vadim A. Krysko

    Springer 2007; US$ 379.00

    Provides information on nonlinear dynamics of thin plates and shells with thermosensitive excitation. This book tells how certain proposed mathematical models and the methods of their solutions allow to achieve more accurate approximation to the real processes exhibited by dynamics of shell (plate) type structures with thermosensitive excitation. more...

  • Plate Buckling in Bridges and Other Structuresby Björn Åkesson

    Taylor and Francis 2007; US$ 91.95

    Covers theory and background of local buckling, presenting simple design calculations which address this intriguing phenomenon. Attempts to master the process of buckling are described, citing both successes and failures. A number of failure case studies are presented as well. The final section of the book presents easy-to-follow design... more...

  • Lightweight Sandwich Constructionby J. M. Davies

    Wiley 2008; US$ 225.00

    Sandwich panels are being used increasingly as the cladding of buildings like factories, warehouses, cold stores and retail sheds. This is because they are light in weight, thermally efficient, aesthetically attractive and can be easily handled and erected. However, to date, an authoritative book on the subject was lacking. This new reference work... more...

  • Concrete Construction Engineering Handbookby Edward G. Nawy

    Taylor and Francis 2008; US$ 220.00

    The first edition of this comprehensive work quickly filled the need for an in-depth handbook on concrete construction engineering and technology. Living up to the standard set by its bestselling predecessor, this second edition of the Concrete Construction Engineering Handbook covers the entire range of issues pertaining to the construction and... more...

  • Structural Sensitivity Analysis and Optimization, 1by Kyung K. Choi; Nam Ho Kim

    Springer 2006; US$ 249.00

    Covers the theory and practical numerical methods of structural design sensitivity analysis. This 2-volume set presents first - and second-order design sensitivity analyses for static and dynamic responses of both linear and nonlinear elastic structural systems. It also introduces structural design concepts that include the CAD-based design model. more...

  • Structural Sensitivity Analysis and Optimization, 2by Kyung K. Choi; Nam Ho Kim

    Springer 2006; US$ 249.00

    Covers the theory and practical numerical methods of structural design sensitivity analysis. This volume presents the first - and second-order design sensitivity analyses for static and dynamic responses of both linear and nonlinear elastic structural systems. It also discusses practical design tools and applications. more...

  • Modern Bamboo Structuresby Yan Xiao; Masafumi Inoue; Shyam K. Paudel

    Taylor and Francis 2008; US$ 184.95

    Bamboo materials are well available in the world. Bamboo has much shorter maturity than trees, thus can be harvested with shorter cycles of plantation. Despite the fact that human society has a long history of using bamboo, there is still a lack of modern and industrialized application of bamboo materials in construction. Promoting the application... more...

  • Handbuch Umformtechnikby Eckart Doege; Bernd-Arno Behrens

    Springer 2007; US$ 109.00

    Das Handbuch Umformtechnik ist das neue Standardwerk für Ingenieure, ambitionierte Studenten und Wissenschaftler. Es überzeugt durch die kompakte und übersichtliche Darstellung grundlegenden Wissens und komplexer Inhalte für die wissenschaftliche Arbeit und die industrielle Praxis. In den Kapiteln Grundlagen der Umformtechnik, Blechumformung, Massivumformung... more...

  • Geotechnical Earthquake Engineeringby Milutin Srbulov

    Springer 2008; US$ 159.00

    Describes simplified dynamic analyses that bridge the gap between the rather limited provisions of design codes and the rather eclectic methods used in sophisticated analyses. This title includes graphs and spreadsheets for the ease and speed of use of simplified analyses of: soil slope (in)stability and displacements caused by earthquakes. more...

  • Design of Structural Elementsby Chanakya Arya

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 146.95

    This third edition of a popular textbook is a concise single-volume introduction to the design of structural elements in concrete, steel, timber, masonry, and composites. It provides design principles and guidance in line with both British Standards and Eurocodes, current as of late 2007. Topics discussed include the philosophy of design,... more...
