  • Principles of Reinforced Concrete Designby Mete A. Sozen; Toshikatsu Ichinose; Santiago Pujol

    CRC Press 2014; US$ 128.00

    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...

  • Der Turm und Brückeby David P. Billington

    Wiley 2014; US$ 26.50 US$ 23.85

    In den USA l�ngst zum Klassiker avanciert, erscheint "The Tower and the Bridge" nun endlich in deutscher �bersetzung. In seinem Geleitwort zur deutschen Ausgabe schreibt J�rg Schlaich: "Dieses Buch ist 'Pflichtlekt�re' und Hochgenuss f�r den 'Ingenieurbauk�nstler', bei dessen Bauten der Zusammenhang von Form und Kraftfluss ablesbar ist... more...

  • Structural Dynamic Analysis with Generalized Damping Modelsby Sondipon Adhikari

    Wiley 2014; US$ 133.00 US$ 119.70

    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...

  • Sustainable Concrete Solutionsby Costas Georgopoulos; Andrew Minson

    Wiley 2014; US$ 91.00 US$ 81.90

    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...

  • Concrete Buildings in Seismic Regionsby George G. Penelis; Gregory G. Penelis

    CRC Press 2014; US$ 100.00

    Bearing in mind that reinforced concrete is a key component in a majority of built environment structures, Concrete Buildings in Seismic Regions combines the scientific knowledge of earthquake engineering with a focus on the design of reinforced concrete buildings in seismic regions. This book addresses practical design issues, providing an integrated,... more...

  • Asymptotic Methods in the Theory of Plates with Mixed Boundary Conditionsby Igor Andrianov; Jan Awrejcewicz; Vladyslav Danishevs'kyy; Andrey Ivankov

    Wiley 2014; US$ 155.00 US$ 139.50

    Asymptotic Methods in the Theory of Plates with Mixed Boundary Conditions comprehensively covers the theoretical background of asymptotic approaches and their use in solving mechanical engineering-oriented problems of structural members, primarily plates (statics and dynamics) with mixed boundary conditions. The first part of this book introduces... more...

  • Analysis and Design of Plated Structuresby N E Shanmugam; C M Wang

    Elsevier Science 2007; US$ 290.00

    Plated structures are widely used in many engineering constructions ranging from aircraft to ships and from off-shore structures to bridges and buildings. Given their diverse use in severe dynamic loading environments, it is vital that their dynamic behaviour is analysed and understood. Analysis and design of plated structures Volume 2: Dynamics provides... more...

  • Introduction to Structuresby W R Spillers

    Elsevier Science 2002; US$ 89.95

    This book focuses on the changes made in building science and practice by the advent of computers. It explains many more tools now available in the contemporary engineering environment. The book discusses the more commonly used topics of structural failure, cable-nets and fabric structures, and topics of non-linear analysis. Problems with solutions... more...

  • Analysis of Engineering Structuresby B Bedenik; C B Besant

    Elsevier Science 1999; US$ 85.00

    This text delivers a fundamental coverage for advanced undergraduates and postgraduates of structural engineering, and professionals working in industrial and academic research. The methods for structural analysis are explained in detail, being based on basic static, kinematics and energy methods previously discussed in the text. A chapter deals with... more...

  • Schwellenräumeby Till Boettger

    Birkhäuser 2014; US$ 84.00

    Was ist ein Schwellenraum? Auftakt, Dazwischen, Schranke? Innen oder außen? Der Schwellenraum ist alles zusammen, meist sogar gleichzeitig. Er lebt von der räumlichen Ambivalenz zwischen Öffnung und Schließung und erzeugt zugleich die Erwartung auf das Kommende. Till Boettger hat sich in Lehr- und Forschungsprojekten intensiv mit der architektonischen... more...
