Comprehensive Coverage for the 16-Hour Structural Engineering Exam The Structural Engineering Reference Manual prepares you for the NCEES 16-hour Structural Engineering (SE) exam. It covers all exam topics and provides a comprehensive review of structural analysis and design methods. Exam-adopted codes and standards are frequently referenced, and solving methods—including strength design for timber and masonry—are thoroughly explained. You will learn how to apply concepts pertaining to vertical and lateral forces by reviewing the 244 example problems. You will also strengthen your problem-solving skills by working the 44 end-of-chapter practice problems. Each problem’s complete solution lets you check your own solving approach. New for the 8th edition, both ASD and LRFD/SD solutions and explanations are provided for masonry problems, allowing you to familiarize yourself with different problem solving methods. Access to supportive information is just as important as knowledge and problem-solving efficiency. The Structural Engineering Reference Manual’s thorough index easily directs you to the codes and concepts you will need during the exam. Cross references to more than 700 equations, 60 tables, 190 figures, 8 appendices, and relevant codes will point you to additional support material when you need it. Topics covered: • Bridges • Foundations and Retaining Structures • Lateral Forces (Wind and Seismic) • Prestressed Concrete • Reinforced Concrete • Reinforced Masonry • Structural Steel • Timber Referenced Codes and Standards: • AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications (AASHTO) • Building Code Requirements and Specification for Masonry Structures (TMS 402/602) • Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete (ACI 318) • International Building Code (IBC) • Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures (ASCE 7) • National Design Specification for Wood Construction ASD/LRFD and National Design Specification Supplement, Design Values for Wood Construction (NDS) • North American Specification for the Design of Cold-Formed Steel Structural Members (AISI) • PCI Design Handbook: Precast and Prestressed Concrete (PCI) • Seismic Design Manual (AISC 327) • Special Design Provisions for Wind and Seismic with Commentary (SDPWS) • Steel Construction Manual (AISC 325)

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. Finally, if you find an error in this book, please let me know by using the error reporting form on the PPI website at ppi2pass.com/errata. Valid submitted errors will be posted to the errata page and incorporated into future printings of this book. Alan Williams, PhD, SE, FICE, C Eng

Cost Optimization of Structures

Release Date: 2006-11-02
Genre: Technology & Engineering

While the weight of a structure constitutes a significant part of the cost, a minimum weight design is not necessarily the minimum cost design. Little attention in structural optimization has been paid to the cost optimization problem, particularly of realistic three-dimensional structures. Cost optimization is becoming a priority in all civil engineering projects, and the concept of Life-Cycle Costing is penetrating design, manufacturing and construction organizations. In this groundbreaking book the authors present novel computational models for cost optimization of large scale, realistic structures, subjected to the actual constraints of commonly used design codes. As the first book on the subject this book: Contains detailed step-by-step algorithms Focuses on novel computing techniques such as genetic algorithms, fuzzy logic, and parallel computing Covers both Allowable Stress Design (ASD) and Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) codes Includes realistic design examples covering large-scale, high-rise building structures Presents computational models that enable substantial cost savings in the design of structures Fully automated structural design and cost optimization is where large-scale design technology is heading, thus Cost Optimization of Structures: Fuzzy Logic, Genetic Algorithms, and Parallel Computing will be of great interest to civil and structural engineers, mechanical engineers, structural design software developers, and architectural engineers involved in the design of structures and life-cycle cost optimisation. It is also a pioneering text for graduate students and researchers working in building design and structural optimization.
