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...

Structural Renovation of Buildings: Methods, Details, & Design Examples
Dynamics of Structures (5th Edition) (Prentice-hall International Series I Civil Engineering and Engineering Mechanics)
Dynamics of Structures (5th Edition) (Prentice-hall International Series
Designed for senior-level and graduate courses in Dynamics of Structures and Earthquake Engineering. Structural dynamics and earthquake engineering for both students and professional engineers An expert on structural dynamics and earthquake engineering, Anil K. Chopra fills an important niche, explaining the material in an approachable style with his Fifth Edition of Dynamics of Structures: Theory and Applications to Earthquake Engineering . No prior knowledge of structural dynamics is assumed, and the presentation is detailed and integrated enough to make the text suitable for self-study. As a textbook on vibrations and structural dynamics, this book has no competition. The material includes many topics in the theory of structural dynamics, along with applications of this theory to earthquake analysis, response, design, and evaluation of structures, with an emphasis on presenting this often difficult subject in as simple a manner as possible through numerous worked-out illustrative examples. The Fifth Edition includes new sections, figures, and examples, along with relevant updates and revisions.

Soil Liquefaction During Earthquakes (Engineering monographs on earthquake criteria, structural design, and strong motion records)
Soil Liquefaction During Earthquakes (Engineering monographs on earthquake
This monograph updates a subject area covered in the 1982 classic text used around the world, Ground Motions and Soil Liquefaction During Earthquakes, by H. Bolton Seed and I.M. Idriss. The new publication will fill a need for a thorough synthesis in one accessible resource for students, practicing engineers, and other professionals of progress in the study of liquefaction since 1982. The following areas are covered: Fundamentals of liquefaction behavior: a framework for a common understanding of the development and limitations of various engineering analytical procedures. Liquefaction triggering analysis: methods for evaluating the potential for liquefaction triggering. Consequences and mitigation of liquefaction: examples of lateral spreading and post-liquefaction settlement analyses, the use of factors of safety in engineering practice, mitigation strategies, and methods for ground improvement. Cyclic softening of saturated clays: engineering procedures for evaluating the potential performance of cohesive fine-grained soils. Three of the 136 figures are in color, illustrating comparisons of liquefaction analysis procedures.
