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.

A structural design book with a code-connected focus, Principles of Structural Design: Wood, Steel, and Concrete, Second Edition introduces the principles and practices of structural design. 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 report was prepared by the National Bureau of Standards of the U. S. Department of Commerce.Strength of houses in the past has been made adequate by patterning them after those which have withstood the test of service conditions. Architects and builders of small structures have followed closely traditional methods handed down from the craftsmen of medieval England. From these traditions, cities have crystallized building codes now enforced under the police power of the community.The trend for the immediate future seems to indicate houses so constructed as to contribute in greater measure to the welfare of the occupants by bringing more of the out-of-doors into the house. Wider windows to give more sunlight and allow stimulating vistas of garden, trees, and flowing water; larger rooms and movable partitions; and walls, floors, and roofs fabricated from plastics and from aluminum and magnesium alloys are some of the improvements anticipated.Library research failed to disclose rational methods for determining the strength of present-day houses and little in that respect that could be applied to house design for the future. This report is an attempt to apply engineering methods to the design of houses for strength. Fundamental data for wind, snow, and floor loads have been reviewed and convenient methods developed for computing applied loads.The engineering approach to strength of houses described in this report will open the way for designers to introduce unconventional materials and unusual methods of fabrication by determining in the laboratory whether constructions have the necessary strengths, thus greatly shortening the time required to develop and obtain acceptance of new constructions for houses.Some approach along rational lines is necessary if houses are to benefit from the fund of technical information now available on materials and methods of manufacture being utilized for other commodities.It is time that the strength of houses be given careful engineering scrutiny --not because houses need to be stronger, for a few fail-- but to judge how much material is superfluous. Material is costly as is the labor required to shape and fit it into place.
