Homayoon E. Estekanchi, Hassan a Vafai
R2,326 Discovery Miles 23 260 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

The endurance time method (ETM) is a seismic analysis procedure in which intensifying dynamic excitations are used as the loading function, and it provides many unique benefits in the design of structures. It can largely reduce the computational effort needed for the response history analysis of structures. This aids in the practical application of response history-based analysis in problems involving very large models and/or requiring numerous analyses to achieve optimal design goals. A single response history analysis through ETM provides an estimate of the system response at the entire range of seismic intensities of interest, thus making it ideal for applications such as seismic risk assessment, life-cycle cost analysis, and value-based seismic design. Conceptual simplicity also makes ETM a useful tool for preliminary response history analysis of structural systems. Features: Presents full coverage of the subject from basic concepts to advanced applied topics. Provides a coherent text on endurance time excitation functions that are essential in endurance time analysis. Seismic Analysis and Design using the Endurance Time Method serves as a comprehensive resource for students, researchers, and practicing structural engineers who want to familiarize themselves with the concepts and applications of the endurance time method (ETM) as a useful tool for dynamic structural analysis.

R13,169 Discovery Miles 131 690 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

This volume contains the proceedings of the 11th International Conference on Structural Analysis of Historical Constructions (SAHC) that was held in Cusco, Peru in 2018. It disseminates recent advances in the areas related to the structural analysis of historical and archaeological constructions. The challenges faced in this field show that accuracy and robustness of results rely heavily on an interdisciplinary approach, where different areas of expertise from managers, practitioners, and scientists work together. Bearing this in mind, SAHC 2018 stimulated discussion on the new knowledge developed in the different disciplines involved in analysis, conservation, retrofit, and management of existing constructions. This book is organized according to the following topics: assessment and intervention of archaeological heritage, history of construction and building technology, advances in inspection and NDT, innovations in field and laboratory testing applied to historical construction and heritage, new technologies and techniques, risk and vulnerability assessments of heritage for multiple types of hazards, repair, strengthening, and retrofit of historical structures, numerical modeling and structural analysis, structural health monitoring, durability and sustainability, management and conservation strategies for heritage structures, and interdisciplinary projects and case studies. This volume holds particular interest for all the community interested in the challenging task of preserving existing constructions, enable great opportunities, and also uncover new challenges in the field of structural analysis of historical and archeological constructions.

The book relates experience of TBM drives in difficult geology, making use of case studies from Turkey to demonstrate the influence of the local geotechnical conditions on the selection of a tunnel boring machine and the selection of tools. There is an extensive description how various geological phenomena, such as for example transition zones, dikes, rock discontinuities, blocky ground, squeezing ground, swelling clays and high strength and abrasive rocks, can reduce the advance rate and what countermeasures can be introduced. There is also a discussion of necessary advance probing and safety measures. Since the presented practical experience from Turkey can also be applicable for other tunnel projects in difficult geology, the book represents a valuable source of knowledge for every tunneler.

Recommendations on Piling (EA Pfahle) (Hardcover): Deutsche Gesellschaft Fur Geotechnik Recommendations on Piling (EA Pfahle) (Hardcover)
Deutsche Gesellschaft Fur Geotechnik; Translated by Alan Johnson
R2,427 Discovery Miles 24 270 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

This handbook provides a complete and detailed overview of piling systems and their application. The design and construction of piled foundations is based on Eurocode 7 and DIN 1054 edition 2010 as well as the European construction codes DIN EN 1536 (Bored piles), DIN EN 12699 (Displacement piles) and DIN EN 14199 (Micropiles). These recommendations also deal with
- categorisation of piling systems,
- actions on piles from structural loading, negative skin friction and side pressure,
- pile resistances from static and dynamic pile test loading as well as extensive tables with the pile load-bearing capacity of nearly all piling systems based on values from practical experience,
- pile groups,
- performance of static and dynamic test loading and integrity tests,
- load-bearing behaviour and verifications for piles under cyclical, dynamic and impact actions
- quality assurance for construction.
An appendix with numerous calculation examples completes the work.
As part of the approval procedure for offshore wind energy structures, the Federal Office for Shipping and Hydrography (BSH) demands verifications according to the new Chapter 13 ("Load-bearing behaviour and verifications for piles under cyclical, dynamical and impact actions") of the EA Pfahle (the recommendations of the Piling working group - 2nd edition), which deals with external pile resistance for the foundations of offshore wind energy structures and the types of verifications to be provided under cyclical actions.
The publication of the EA-Pfahle recommendations by the Piling working group of the German Society for Geotechnics (DGGT), which works with the same members as the piling standards committee NA 00-05-07, is intended to provide assistance for engineers active in the design, calculation and construction of piled foundations. The recommendations can thus be considered as rules of the technology and as a supplement to the available codes and standards.

R1,523 Discovery Miles 15 230 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

This book introduces the fundamental design concepts of Eurocode 3 for steel structures in building construction, and their practical application. Following a discussion of the basis of design, above all the principles of the limit state approach, the material standards and their use are detailed. The fundamentals of structural analysis and modeling are presented, followed by the design criteria and approaches for various types of structural members. The following chapters expand on the principles and applications of elastic and plastic design, each exemplified by the step-by-step design calculation of a braced steel-framed building and an industrial building, respectively. Besides providing the necessary theoretical concepts for a good understanding, this manual intends to be a supporting tool for practicing engineers. To that end, numerous worked examples are provided throughout the book, concerning the analysis of steel structures and the design of elements under several types of actions. These examples facilitate the application of Eurocode regulations in practice. The second edition contains more worked examples and extended explications on issues like torsion.
