Structural Elements for Architects and Builders: Design of Columns, Beams, and Tension Elements in Wood, Steel, and Reinforced Concrete, 2nd Edition

Structural Elements for Architects and Builders: Design of

Concise but comprehensive, Jonathan Ochshorn's Structural Elements for Architects and Builders explains how to design and analyze columns, beams, tension members and their connections. The material is organized into a single, self-sufficient volume, including all necessary data for the preliminary design and analysis of these structural elements in wood, steel, and reinforced concrete. Every chapter contains insights developed by the author and generally not found elsewhere. Appendices included at the end of each chapter contain numerous tables and graphs, based on material contained in industry publications, but reorganized and formatted especially for this text to improve clarity and simplicity, without sacrificing comprehensiveness. Procedures for design and analysis are based on the latest editions of the National Design Specification for Wood Construction (AF&PA and AWC), the Steel Construction Manual (AISC), Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete (ACI), and Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures (ASCE/SEI). This thoroughly revised and expanded second edition of Structural Elements includes an introduction to statics and strength of materials, an examination of loads, and new sections on material properties and construction systems within the cha...

1997 Uniform Building Code, Vol. 2: Structural Engineering

The Uniform Building Code is one of the most widely adopted model building codes in the world and is a proven document meeting the needs of government units charged with enforcement of building regulation. The most recent edition, published in 1997, provides complete regulations covering all major aspects of building design and construction relating to fire and life safety and structural safety. The provisions of the 1997 Uniform Building Code were published in three volumes to help building inspectors, plans examiners, architects and structural designers locate provisions applicable to their respective fields without the need to search through all provisions. The two most popular volumes, 1 and 2, are now available from Delmar Learning. Volume 2 contains provisions for structural engineering design, including those design provisions formerly in the UBC Standards. These design provisions have been incorporated into the applicable chapter as divisions of the chapter.

Fundamentals of seismic protection for bridges (Engineering monographs

Fundamentals of Seismic Protection for Bridges covers the basic aspects of the seismic performance of bridges during past earthquakes, current practices in the seismic analysis and design of new bridges, and retrofit strategies. Also included is an extensive glossary of terms pertaining to bridges and their elements. The monograph examines how bridge performance has been affected by construction, design details, proximity to different hazards, and the characteristics of surrounding soil. In exploring current practices for new bridges, it deals with how to design bridges for the variety of hazards that can occur during an earthquake. Also described are seismic demands on bridges and performance-based design; i.e., how to design and detail bridges and their elements to meet performance requirements. Additionally, the monograph focuses on the steps that a comprehensive bridge retrofit program would require, including the prioritizing, screening, and selection processes, as well as the analysis needed to identify vulnerabilities and develop alternate retrofit strategies.

Mechanical Design of Structural Materials in Animals

Mechanical Design of Structural Materials in

Mechanical Design of Structural Materials in Animals explores the principles underlying how molecules interact to produce the functional attributes of biological materials: their strength and stiffness, ability to absorb and store energy, and ability to resist the fatigue that accrues through a lifetime of physical insults. These attributes play a central role in determining the size and shape of animals, the ways in which they can move, and how they interact with their environment. By showing how structural materials have been designed by evolution, John Gosline sheds important light on how animals work.Gosline elucidates the pertinent theories for how molecules are arranged into macromolecular structures and how those structures are then built up into whole organisms. In particular, Gosline develops the theory of discontinuous, fiber-reinforced composites, which he employs in a grand synthesis to explain the properties of everything from the body wall of sea anemones to spiders' silks and insect cuticles, tendons, ligaments, and bones. Although the theories are examined in depth, Gosline's elegant discussion makes them accessible to anyone with an interest in the mechanics of life.Focusing on the materials from which animals are constructed, this book answers fundamental questi...
