This book covers the section properties, design values, reference tables, and other design aids required to accomplish complete structural designs in accordance with the codes. What’s New in This Edition: Reflects all the latest revised codes and standards The text material has been thoroughly reviewed and expanded, including a new chapter on concrete design Suitable for combined design coursework in wood, steel, and concrete Includes all essential material—the section properties, design values, reference tables, and other design aids required to accomplish complete structural designs according to the codes This book uses the LRFD basis of design for all structures This updated edition has been expanded into 17 chapters and is divided into four parts. The first section of the book explains load and resistance factor design, and explores a unified approach to design. The second section covers wood design and specifically examines wood structures. It highlights sawn lumber, glued laminated timber, and structural composite/veneer lumber. The third section examines steel structures. It addresses the AISC 2010 revisions to the sectional properties of certain structural elements, as well as changes in the procedure to design the slip-critical connection. The final section includes a chapter on T beams and introduces doubly reinforced beams. Principles of Structural Design: Wood, Steel, and Concrete, Second Edition was designed to be used for joint coursework in wood, steel, and concrete design.

This book examines the corrosion of reinforced concrete from a practical point of view, highlights protective design and repair procedures, and presents ongoing maintenance protocols. Updated throughout, this new edition adds additional information on concrete repair using Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymers (CFRP), and reviews new examples of the effects of corrosion on both prestressed and reinforced concrete structures. It also examines economic analysis procedures and the probability of structural failures to define structural risk assessment, and covers precautions and recommendations for protecting reinforced concrete structures from corrosion based on the latest codes and specifications.

Unified Design of Steel Structures, 3rd edition, continues the unified LRFD and ASD approach to teaching structural steel design established in the first two editions. It addresses the design of steel structures for buildings as governed by the ANSI/AISC 360-16 Specification for Structural Steel Buildings, published by the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC). It is intended primarily as a text for a first course in steel design for civil and architectural engineers. Such a course usually occurs in the third or fourth year of an engineering program. The book can also be used in a second, building-oriented course in steel design, depending on the coverage in the first course. In addition to its use as a textbook, it provides a good review for practicing engineers looking to learn the provisions of the latest specification or to convert their practice from any of the old specifications to the new specification. Users are expected to have a firm knowledge of statics and strength of materials and have easy access to the AISC Steel Construction Manual, 15th Edition. All examples that rely on LRFD and ASD provisions are fully presented, even if it means some duplication, so that regardless of approach being taught, there will be no need to refer to the other approach example. All homework problems that could be LRFD or ASD are presented both ways so that the instructor may choose the approach they want the student to follow. Subjects addressed include: principles of limit states design; load factors, resistance factors, and safety factors; tension member design; column or compression member design; beam or bending member design; plate girder design; design of beam-columns or members subjected to combined axial load and bending; bracing member design; composite member design; connection basics including bolts, welds, and connecting elements; design of shear connections, light bracing connections and direct bearing connections; design of moment connections; and basics of seismic design. Unified Design of Steel Structures, 3rd edition, also features multi-chapter problems and a new Integrated Design Project. Instructors can add a few, selected problems throughout the term, or include a full project, design of a four-story office building. Either way, all of the tools are here to help students learn how to apply the AISC Specification to the design of a structural steel building. Sample pages from the AISC Steel Construction Manual can be found throughout the book. Students can easily reference design aids and quickly learn how to use them. Keywords: steel design, beam design, column design, beam-column design, composite design, connection design, AISC

The comprehensive reference on the basics of structural analysis and design, now updated with the latest considerations of building technology Structural design is an essential element of the building process, yet one of the most difficult to learn. While structural engineers do the detailed consulting work for a building project, architects need to know enough structural theory and analysis to design a building. Most texts on structures for architects focus narrowly on the mathematical analysis of isolated structural components, yet Building Structures looks at the general concepts with selected computations to understand the role of the structure as a building subsystem—without the complicated mathematics. New to this edition is a complete discussion of the LRFD method of design, supplemented by the ASD method, in addition to: The fundamentals of structural analysis and design for architects A glossary, exercise problems, and a companion website and instructor's manual Material ideally suited for preparing for the ARE exam Profusely illustrated throughout with drawings and photographs, and including new case studies, Building Structures, Third Edition is perfect for nonengineers to understand and visualize structural design.

Many important advances in designing modern structures have occurred over the last several years. Structural engineers need an authoritative source of information that thoroughly and concisely covers the foundational principles of the field. Comprising chapters selected from the second edition of the best-selling Handbook of Structural Engineering, Principles of Structural Design provides a tightly focused, concise, and valuable guide to the theoretical, practical, and computational aspects of structural design. This book systematically explores the fundamental concepts underlying structural design for each major type of structural material. Expert contributors authoritatively discuss steel structures, steel frame design using advanced analysis, cold-formed steel structures, reinforced concrete structures, prestressed concrete, and masonry, timber, and aluminum structures. For each construction material, the chapter explores the material properties, design considerations, and structural principles affecting overall design. Reflecting recent advances, the book includes two chapters devoted to reliability-based structural design and structure configuration based on wind engineering. Computational methods and simulation techniques illustrate the concepts of reliability-based design, while examples of real bridges highlight the application of wind engineering principles and methods. Principles of Structural Design couples fundamental concepts with advanced practices. It is an ideal introduction for newcomers to the field as well as a perfect review and quick-reference guide for seasoned engineers.
