Structural engineering (General)

Most popular at the top

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Concrete Solutionsby Michael Grantham; Carmelo Majorana; Valentina Salomoni

    Taylor and Francis 2009; US$ 262.00

    Concrete repair continues to be a subject of major interest to engineers and technologists worldwide. The concrete repair budget for the UK alone currently runs at some UKP 220 per annum. Some estimates have indicated that, worldwide, in 2010 the expenditure for maintenance and repair work will represent about 85% of the total expenditure in the construction... more...

  • Mechanics of Optimal Structural Designby David W. A. Rees

    Wiley 2009; US$ 145.00

    In a global climate where engineers are increasingly under pressure to make the most of limited resources, there are huge potential financial and environmental benefits to be gained by designing for minimum weight. With Mechanics of Optimal Structural Design, David Rees brings the original approach of weight optimization to the existing structural... more...

  • Tensile Surface Structuresby Michael Seidel; David S. Sturge

    Wiley 2009; US$ 135.00

    Tensile surface structures are the visual expression of an intensive rethinking of the topic of building envelopes by designers. Advances in design methods, materials, construction elements and assembly and erection planning in the field of lightweight construction are enabling ever more exacting applications of tensile structures with envelope and... more...

  • Seismic Analysis of Structuresby T. K. Datta

    Wiley 2010; US$ 160.00

    While numerous books have been written on earthquakes, earthquake resistance design, and seismic analysis and design of structures, none have been tailored for advanced students and practitioners, and those who would like to have most of the important aspects of seismic analysis in one place. With this book, readers will gain proficiencies in the following:... more...

  • Dynamics in the Practice of Structural Designby O. Sircovich-Saar

    WIT Press 2006; US$ 150.00

    Structural dynamics is a diverse theme covering a variety of topics, some of which have direct applications in structural design. Among the latter a clear distinction can be made between those necessary for the engineer in the daily practice of structural design and those related to academic activities, research, and the development of commercial products.Each... more...

  • Unified Theory of Concrete Structuresby Thomas T. C. Hsu; Yi-Lung Mo

    Wiley 2010; US$ 175.00

    Unified Theory of Concrete Structures develops an integrated theory that encompasses the various stress states experienced by both RC & PC structures under the various loading conditions of bending, axial load, shear and torsion. Upon synthesis, the new rational theories replace the many empirical formulas currently in use for shear, torsion... more...

  • Challenges, Opportunities and Solutions in Structural Engineering and Constructionby Nader Ghafoori

    Taylor and Francis 2009; US$ 409.00

    Challenges, Opportunities and Solutions in Structural Engineering and Construction addresses the latest developments in innovative and integrative technologies and solutions in structural engineering and construction, including: Concrete, masonry, steel and composite structures; Dynamic impact and earthquake engineering; Bridges and... more...
