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.

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.

This enlightening textbook for undergraduates on civil engineering degree courses explains structural design from its mechanical principles, showing the speed and simplicity of effective design from first principles. This text presents good approximate solutions to complex design problems, such as "Wembley-Arch" type structures, the design of thin-walled structures, and long-span box girder bridges. Other more code-based textbooks concentrate on relatively simple member design, and avoid some of the most interesting design problems because code compliant solutions are complex. Yet these problems can be addressed by relatively manageable techniques. The methods outlined here enable quick, early stage, "ball-park" design solutions to be considered, and are also useful for checking finite element analysis solutions to complex problems. The conventions used in the book are in accordance with the Eurocodes, especially where they provide convenient solutions that can be easily understood by students. Many of the topics, such as composite beam design, are straight applications of Eurocodes, but with the underlying theory fully explained. The techniques are illustrated through a series of worked examples which develop in complexity, with the more advanced questions forming extended exam type questions. A comprehensive range of fully worked tutorial questions are provided at the end of each section for students to practice in preparation for closed book exams.

This book aims to "bridge the gap" between engineers" and architects" understanding of structural form. It aims to inspire designers to develop innovative and viable structural forms. This book is presented in two parts. The first part is theoretical and investigates source of inspiration for developing structural form; learning from natural forms; applying our own intuition; seeking inspiration from precedents; applying understanding of structural principles; and developing design through physical models. The second part is presented through four case studies. They include the Chelsea Flower Show Pavilion by Sarah Wigglesworth Architects and Jane Wernick Associates; the Eden Project by Nicholas Grimshaw Architects and Anthony Hunt Associates; the glass structures by Dirk Jan Postel and Robert Nijsse; and the Dutch Expo 2000 Pavilion by MVRDV Architects and ABT consulting engineers. The case studies all have in common that the imaginative structural forms are in harmony with the architectural concept and, at the same time, present very efficient solutions to technical and structural problems. Conceptual structural design is essential reading for architects and engineers, and for anyone interested in conceptual structural design. CONTENTS include: Lessons from Nature - design through evolution; Primitive Structures - design through intuition; Master builders and beyond - design from precedent; Scientific principles and new materials - design through new possibilities; and Learning from physical models - design through experimentation.

The Definitive Reference for Designers and Design Students A solid grasp of the fundamentals of materials, along with a thorough understanding of load and design techniques, provides the components needed to complete a marine platform design. Design Principles of Ships and Marine Structures details every facet of ship design and design integration, and highlights the design aspects that must be put together to create an integrated whole product. This book discusses naval architecture and marine engineering applications and principles relevant to the design of various systems, examines advanced numerical techniques that can be applied to maritime design procedure at the concept design stage, and offers a comprehensive approach to the subject of ship design. Covers the Entire Sphere of Marine Design The book begins with an introduction to marine design and the marine environment, describing many of the marine products that are used for transportation, defense and the exploitation of marine resources. It also discusses stability issues relevant to ship design, as well as hydrodynamic aspects of resistance, propulsion, sea keeping and maneuvering, and their effects on design. In addition to covering the various systems and sub-systems that go into making a complex product to be used in maritime environment, the author explains engineering economics and its application in ship design, and provides examples wherever necessary. Written by an author with more than 35 years of teaching experience, this book: Describes various design methodologies such as sequential design process with the application of concurrent engineering and set based design factors in the use of computer-aided design techniques Highlights the shape design methodology of ship forms and layout design principles Considers design aspects relative to safety and risk assessment Introduces the design for production aspects in marine product development Discusses design principles for sustainability Explains the principles of numerical optimization for decision-making Design Principles of Ships and Marine Structures focuses on ship design efficiency, safety, sustainability, production, and management, and appeals to students and design professionals in the field of shipping, shipbuilding and offshore engineering.

Excerpt from The Principles of Structural Design, Vol. 2 The second part of this treatise has been compiled for the use of officers, Royal Engineers, completing the full course of instruction at the School of Military Engineering. In the former part of the treatise, among other subjects, the consideration of influences brought to bear on supported beams and cantilevers has been considered. In this the more complicated questions of fixed and continuous beams, and the effect of rolling loads are first investigated, after which the application of all the foregoing principles to different types of bridges is discussed and exemplified. In addition to bridges, the subjects of retaining walls, reservoir dams and sea defences are dealt with. This completes the list of those problems in structural engineering which, as a rule, engineers of the army of Great Britain may have to solve. No apology need be offered for devoting a considerable portion of this work to the construction of bridges, for it will be universally admitted to be of special importance to engineers of the British army.
