Tower Bridge is one of the most famous bridges in the world. Designed by Sir Horace Jones (1819-1887) and engineer Sir John Wolfe Barry (1836-1918) over a period of eight years, it was the largest and most advanced bascule bridge ever completed when it opened in 1894, requiring 11,000 tons of steel and involving more than 400 construction workers. This impressive feat of engineering helped sustain the growing commercial activity at the docks and warehouses in East London, and the sudden influx of daily commuters brought in from the newly built London Bridge station. Still in full use today, the bridge is lifted an average of 850 times a year. This Victorian masterpiece remains a highly important crossing on the River Thames, as well as being one of London's defining landmarks. This compelling album of photographs by Harry Cory Wright allows us to experience the awe-inspiring structure of Tower Bridge in exquisite detail, from the intricate machinery and original mechanisms inside the control rooms and secret corridors, to the great cavernous space within the bascule chamber. It includes an interview with Senior Technical Officer Glen Ellis, who shares his own daily experience of lifting the bridge, evoking an incredibly vivid sense of `being there'.

Recent earthquakes in many countries of the world have confirmed the potential for very large seismic events that until now were not forecast. The level of disturbance and destruction of highways and bridges as well as life, suffered during these dominant earthquakes were far greater than structural engineers and their associated design codes had predicted. One important lesson that has been learnt is that it is vital that bridges, which connect major transportation routes, must continue to function after an earthquake. In the quest of this realization, new technologies and design efforts by engineers have resulted in the development of seismic protection systems, which include Shock Transmission Units (STU) together with various seismic isolation and energy mitigation devices. In the only book to provide independent, non-proprietary information on the design and application of STUs, the author offers information on a wide range of different applications, including new and existing highway and railway bridges, as well as non-bridge structures such as nuclear power plants. Illustrated case studies included throughout, Shock Transmission Units in Construction is written by a proven expert in STUs and the only world authority on the subject.

R3,761 Discovery Miles 37 610 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Many civil engineers leave university with some knowledge of applied mechanics, geology and some soil and rock mechanics but often a limited grounding in geotechnical engineering. A good geotechnical engineer needs to appreciate the balance between theoretical principles, practical experience and the uncertainties present when dealing with the ground in its natural state. The ICE Manual of Geotechnical Engineering is intended to address this need by delivering an authoritative and comprehensive reference providing the core geotechnical engineering principles, practical techniques, and the major questions engineers should keep in mind when dealing with real-world engineering challenges - all within a consistently coherent framework. This volume tackles the principles and provides a solid grounding in the discipline. Furthermore this volume covers assessment of the ground and soil properties and issues.

Jiri Strasky
R2,478 Discovery Miles 24 780 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Stress Ribbon and Cable-Supported Pedestrian Bridges considers how slender concrete decks are used in the design of suspension and cable stayed structures. It looks at their characteristic feature - their rigidity, which is mainly given by the tension stiffness of prestressed concrete decking, so much so that movement caused by pedestrians or wind does not register as discomfort by users. Starting with a brief history this book describes structural types, addresses general design criteria, current technology, static and dynamic analysis and discusses the results of the static and dynamic loading tests. Illustrated throughout, Stress Ribbon and Cable-Supported Pedestrian Bridges provides numerous international examples and case studies of outstanding structures. This new edition has been fully updated to bring text in to line with Eurocodes and includes new examples and case studies to showcase the advances in design techniques and testing.

R1,643 Discovery Miles 16 430 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Structural Analysis with Finite Elements reveals the theory behind the finite element (FE) method as it relates to structural engineering and explains how to overcome commonly encountered problems and errors found in everyday structural modelling with finite element software. Drawing on nearly 20 years of experience as a structural engineer and FE software developer, Paolo Rugarli gives readers clear guidance on the fundamental principles of the FE method, demonstrating through practical examples how these principles apply to the kind of FE modelling that goes on every day in structural design departments. Explaining computational methods from the software users' point of view, Structural Analysis with Finite Elements also points out the risks involved in using FE software packages, analysing typical errors and problems, with extensive reference to real world examples.

This third edition provides a concise yet approachable introduction to seismic theory, designed as a first course for graduate students or advanced undergraduate students. It clearly explains the fundamental concepts, emphasizing intuitive understanding over lengthy derivations, and outlines the different types of seismic waves and how they can be used to resolve Earth structure and understand earthquakes. New material and updates have been added throughout, including ambient noise methods, shear-wave splitting, back-projection, migration and velocity analysis in reflection seismology, earthquake rupture directivity, and fault weakening mechanisms. A wealth of both reworked and new examples, review questions and computer-based exercises in MATLAB (R)/Python give students the opportunity to apply the techniques they have learned to compute results of interest and to illustrate Earth's seismic properties. More advanced sections, which are not needed to understand the other material, are flagged so that instructors or students pressed for time can skip them.
