A new edition of Francis D.K. Ching's illustrated guide to structural design Structures are an essential element of the building process, yet one of the most difficult concepts for architects to grasp. While structural engineers do the detailed consulting work for a project, architects should have enough knowledge of structural theory and analysis... more...

The Finite Element Method (FEM) has become a standard tool used in everyday work by structural engineers having to analyse virtually any type of structure. After a short introduction into the methodolgy, the book concentrates on the calculation of internal forces, deformations, ideal buckling loads and vibration modes of steel structures. Beyond linear... more...

Die Aufgabe der Beurteilung existierender Tragwerke stellt sich bei Umbauten oder Umnutzungen, und zunehmend auch bei der Einschätzung der Standsicherheit von öffentlich zugänglichen Bauwerken. Bei realistischer Beurteilung können Tragreserven durch Reparaturmaßnahmen aktiviert und somit die Eingriffe auf ein Mindestmaß begrenzt werden, was besonders... more...

Encouraging creative uses of reinforced concrete, Principles of Reinforced Concrete Design draws a clear distinction between fundamentals and professional consensus. This text presents a mixture of fundamentals along with practical methods. It provides the fundamental concepts required for designing reinforced concrete (RC) structures, emphasizing... more...

The choice of structural design and material is essential in preventing the external walls of a vessel from buckling under pressure. In this revised second edition of Pressure vessels, Carl Ross reviews the problem and uses both theoretical and practical examples to show how it can be solved for different structures. The second edition opens with... more...

Long recognised as a classic in the USA, "The Tower and the Bridge" is now at last available in German translation. In his preface to the German edition, Jörg Schlaich writes. "This book is essential reading and a pleasure for the "structural engineering artist", in whose structures the connection between form and force flow is visible and which are... more...

This book introduces the design concept of Eurocode 3 for steel structures in building construction, and their practical application. Following a discussion of the basis of design, including the limit state approach, the material standards and their use are detailed. The fundamentals of structural analysis and modeling are presented, followed by the... more...

Since Lord Rayleigh introduced the idea of viscous damping in his classic work "The Theory of Sound" in 1877, it has become standard practice to use this approach in dynamics, covering a wide range of applications from aerospace to civil engineering. However, in the majority of practical cases this approach is adopted more for mathematical convenience... more...

The challenges facing humanity in the 21st century include climate change, population growth, overconsumption of resources, overproduction of waste and increasing energy demands. For construction practitioners, responding to these challenges means creating a built environment that provides accommodation and infrastructure with better whole-life performance... more...
