Preface to Third Edition (Eurocodes) This, heavily revised, third edition of the Structural Engineer’s Pocket Book (SEPB) is not ‘yet another guide to the Eurocodes’. It is intended as a day-to-day reference and hopes to satisfy a number of different groups of engineers in the transition from British Standards to Eurocodes. The first group includes those who are ‘fluent’ in Eurocodes and are looking for a source of Euro-compatible facts and figures for day-to-day use. Next are the students or graduates who have been taught Eurocodes at university, who are looking for a practical data book to complement their theoretical knowledge. Last, but not least, are the practising engineers who have been content using British Standards who will want quick access to the ‘new’ codes, with the differences, potential pitfalls and advantages clearly highlighted. It has been difficult to strike a balance to cater for all of these groups, particularly when many authors choose not to include references to British Standard notation. However, based on the rationale that I used for the first edition, I have simply included what I find helpful, for example, using both British Standard and Eurocode notation at the head of the steel tables as an aide memoire, a quick reference table of differences between the different codes and inclusion of older codes of practice for assessment of historic structures. It should also be said that in the United Kingdom the simultaneous introduction of a completely new and radical set of structural codes of practice, to replace all existing codes, has never been attempted before. It is an immensely ambitious task. Despite the withdrawal of British Standards in 2010, Eurocodes are not in widespread use and much of the innovative code content derived from research has not been widely tested in the field. Key figures involved in the drafting of the Eurocodes acknowledge that it will take time to find the ‘wrinkles’. All engineers should be encouraged to ‘read the codes of practice like the devil reads the bible’ as whichever code of practice is used, it is no substitute for sound engineering judgement. The Eurocodes use considerable notation and symbols. The front and back covers include foldout leaves which summarise the most commonly used symbols for easy reference alongside the main text. Once again, I would be interested to receive any comments, corrections or suggestions on the content of the book by email at [email protected] Fiona Cobb

Genre: Cable-stayed bridges

The need for large–scale bridges is constantly growing due to the enormous infrastructure development around the world. Since the 1970s many of them have been cable–stayed bridges. In 1975 the largest span length was 404 m, in 1995 it increased to 856 m, and today it is 1088 m. Thus the economically efficient range of cable–stayed bridges is tending to move towards even larger spans, and cable–stayed bridges are increasingly the focus of interest worldwide. This book describes the fundamentals of design analysis, fabrication and construction, in which the author refers to 250 built examples to illustrate all aspects. International or national codes and technical regulations are referred to only as examples, such as bridges that were designed to German DIN, AASHTO, British Standards, etc. The chapters on cables and erection are a major focus of this work as they represent the most important difference from other types of bridges. The examples were chosen from the bridges in which the author was personally involved, or where the consulting engineers, Leonhardt, Andrä und Partner (LAP), participated significantly. Other bridges are included for their special structural characteristics or their record span lengths. The most important design engineers are also presented.

Die preisgekrönte Rapperin und Lyrikerin Kate Tempest presst mit ihrem Debüt ihre Hand ans finstere, schlagende Herz der Metropolen, das im allesüberdauernden Takt von Drogen, Begehren und Freundschaft schlägt. Ihre Helden Becky, Pete, Leon und Harry haben Jobs, für die es keine Ausbildung und Geld, für das es ungewaschen keine Verwendung gibt. Sie müssen raus, raus aus London – und kommen doch nicht davon los. Tempest nimmt uns mit in die Häuser und Herzen der kleinen Leute, in ihre Familien und zeigt uns Momente voller Schönheit, Enttäuschung, Ehrgeiz und Scheitern. Klug, niemals zynisch und immer voller Empathie stellt «Worauf du dich verlassen kannst» die Frage, wie wir leben und einander lieben – und zeigt uns, dass gute Absichten nicht notwendigerweise zu den richtigen Entscheidungen führen.
