Preface and Acknowledgments I wrote the Structural Engineering Reference Manual to be a comprehensive resource that helps you prepare for the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) 16-hour Structural Engineering (SE) exam. As such, each of this book’s eight chapters presents the most useful equations in the exam-adopted codes and standards, and each chapter also provides guidelines for selecting and applying these equations. For this eighth edition, all nomenclature, equations, examples, and practice problems have been checked and updated so that they are consistent with NCEESadopted codes and specifications. Additionally, significant changes have been made to the following chapters. Chapter 1, Reinforced Concrete Design, includes significant new material on concrete anchoring. Existing content was revised to conform to the Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete and Commentary, 2011 edition. Chapter 4, Structural Steel Design, includes new material on nominal flexural strength, compact sections, noncompact sections, slender sections, lateral-torsional buckling, moment redistribution in continuous beams, buckling, bolt types and connections, and welds. Existing content was revised to conform to the Steel Construction Manual, fourteenth edition. Chapter 5, Timber Design, includes new material on load combinations, reference design values, and adjustment factors. The chapter was also updated to include both exam-adopted ASD and LRFD design methods. Existing content was revised to conform to the National Design Specification for Wood Construction ASD/LRFD, 2012 edition. Chapter 6, Reinforced Masonry Design, includes significant new material on required strength, allowable stress, masonry beams in flexure, reinforcement requirements, the design of reinforced masonry beams, minimum and maximum reinforcement area, shear beam design, masonry column design, and anchor bolt placement and design. The chapter was also updated in order to present both exam-adopted ASD and SD design methods. Existing content was revised to conform to the Building Code Requirements and Specification for Masonry Structures, 2011 edition. Chapter 7, Lateral Forces, includes new material on shear wall-frame systems, steel systems, subdiaphragms, seismic parameters and building height, and wind loads. Existing content was revised to conform to the Seismic Design Manual, 2012 edition. Thank you to Arthur Richard Chianello, PE, for technically reviewing the new content in Chapter 1 and Chapter 4, and David R. Connor, SE, PE, for technically reviewing the new content in Chapter 5 and Chapter 6, and to Ralph Arcena, EIT, for performing the calculation checks. At PPI, the task of making the vision of a new edition into a reality fell to the Product Development and Implementation Department team that consisted of Hilary Flood, associate acquisitions editor; Nicole Evans and Ellen Nordman, associate project managers; Tracy Katz, lead editor; Thomas Bliss, Sierra Cirimelli-Low, Tyler Hayes, Julia Lopez, and Ian A. Walker, copy editors; Tom Bergstrom, production associate and technical illustrator; Kate Hayes, production associate; Cathy Schrott, production services manager; Sarah Hubbard, director of product development and implementation; and Jenny Lindeburg King, associate editor-in-chief.

Fundamentals of Structural Engineering

Author: Jerome J. Connor
Publisher: Springer
ISBN: 9783319243313
Release Date: 2016-02-10
Genre: Science

This updated textbook provides a balanced, seamless treatment of both classic, analytic methods and contemporary, computer-based techniques for conceptualizing and designing a structure. New to the second edition are treatments of geometrically nonlinear analysis and limit analysis based on nonlinear inelastic analysis. Illustrative examples of nonlinear behavior generated with advanced software are included. The book fosters an intuitive understanding of structural behavior based on problem solving experience for students of civil engineering and architecture who have been exposed to the basic concepts of engineering mechanics and mechanics of materials. Distinct from other undergraduate textbooks, the authors of Fundamentals of Structural Engineering, 2/e embrace the notion that engineers reason about behavior using simple models and intuition they acquire through problem solving. The perspective adopted in this text therefore develops this type of intuition by presenting extensive, realistic problems and case studies together with computer simulation, allowing for rapid exploration of how a structure responds to changes in geometry and physical parameters. The integrated approach employed in Fundamentals of Structural Engineering, 2/e make it an ideal instructional resource for students and a comprehensive, authoritative reference for practitioners of civil and structural engineering.

Release Date: 2013-10-22
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Civil Engineer's Reference Book, Fourth Edition provides civil engineers with reports on design and construction practices in the UK and overseas. It gives a concise presentation of theory and practice in the many branches of a civil engineer's profession and it enables them to study a subject in greater depth. The book discusses some improvements in earlier practices, for example in surveying, geotechnics, water management, project management, underwater working, and the control and use of materials. Other changes covered are from the evolving needs of clients for almost all forms of construction, maintenance and repair. Another major change is the introduction of new national and Euro-codes based on limit state design, covering most aspects of structural engineering. The fourth edition incorporates these advances and, at the same time, gives greater prominence to the special problems relating to work overseas, with differing client requirements and climatic conditions. Chapters 1 to 10 provide engineers, at all levels of development, with 'lecture notes' on the basic theories of civil engineering. Chapters 11 to 44 cover the practice of design and construction in many of the fields of civil engineering. Civil engineers, architects, lawyers, mechanical engineers, insurers, clients, and students of civil engineering will find benefit in the use of this text.
