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.

"In order to reduce the seismic risk facing many densely populated regions worldwide, including Canada and the United States, modern earthquake engineering should be more widely applied. But current literature on earthquake engineering may be difficult to grasp for structural engineers who are untrained in seismic design. In addition no single resource addressed seismic design practices in both Canada and the United States until now. Elements of Earthquake Engineering and Structural Dynamics was written to fill the gap. It presents the key elements of earthquake engineering and structural dynamics at an introductory level and gives readers the basic knowledge they need to apply the seismic provisions contained in Canadian and American building codes."--Résumé de l'éditeur.

A Thoroughly Updated Guide to the Design of Steel Structures This comprehensive resource offers practical coverage of steel structures design and clearly explains the provisions of the 2015 International Building Code, the American Society of Civil Engineers ASCE 7-10, and the American Institute of Steel Construction AISC 360-10 and AISC 341-10. Steel Structures Design for Lateral and Vertical Forces, Second Edition, features start-to-finish engineering strategies that encompass the entire range of steel building materials, members, and loads. All techniques strictly conform to the latest codes and specifications. A brand new chapter on the design of steel structures for lateral loads explains design techniques and innovations in concentrically and eccentrically braced frames and moment frames. Throughout, design examples, including step-by-step solutions, and end-of-chapter problems using both ASD and LRFD methods demonstrate real-world applications and illustrate how code requirements apply to both lateral and vertical forces. This up-to-date Second Edition covers: · Steel Buildings and Design Criteria · Design Loads · Behavior of Steel Structures under Design Loads · Design of Steel Beams in Flexure · Design of Steel Beams for Shear and Torsion · Design of Compression Members · Stability of Frames · Design by Inelastic Analysis · Design of Tension Members · Design of Bolted and Welded Connections · Plate Girders and Composite Members · Design of Steel Structures for Lateral Loads

Provides both a general treatment of fundamental concepts and issues and illustrations of the design of typical earthquake-resistant structures based on the requirements of the Uniform Building Code. Emphasizes the practical concerns of the building designer as well as basic grounding in the fundamentals. Emphasizes the significance of various factors in design, such as choice of materials, type of structure, details of construction, building planning, and spatial arrangement.
