    This latest edition fills an important gap as an information source for practicing and academic engineers alike, explaining the principles of wind loads on structures, including the relevant aspects of meteorology, bluff-body aerodynamics, probability and statistics, and structural dynamics. Among the unique features of the book are its broad view... more...

  • Durability Design of Concrete Structures in Severe Environments, Second Editionby Odd E. Gjørv

    CRC Press 2015; US$ 129.95

    One of the most pressing problems facing the construction industry globally is the deterioration of major concrete infrastructure in marine and other chloride-containing environments. While recent advancements in concrete technology have made it easier to control the negative impact of deteriorating processes such as alkali-aggregate reaction, freezing... more...

  • Chemical Reagents for Protein Modification, Fourth Editionby Roger L. Lundblad

    CRC Press 2015; US$ 159.95

    The use of the chemical modification of proteins has evolved over the past 80 years, benefiting from advances in analytical, physical, and organic chemistry. Over the past 30 years, the use of chemical reagents to modify proteins has been crucial in determining the function and structure of purified proteins. This groundbreaking work is part of the... more...

  • Aeroelastic vibrations and stability of plates and shellsby Sergey D. Algazin; Igor A. Kijko

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 238.00

    Back-action of wind onto wings causes vibrations, endangering the whole structure. By careful choices of geometry, materials and damping, hazardous effects on wind engines, planes, turbines and cars can be avoided. This book gives an overview of aerodynamics and mechanics behind these problems and describes a range of mechanical effects.... more...

  • Hyperbolic Structuresby Matthias Beckh
