The Audience in Everyday Life - Living in a Media World (Hardcover): S.Elizabeth Bird The Audience in Everyday Life - Living in a Media World (Hardcover)
S.Elizabeth Bird
R2,126 Discovery Miles 21 260 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days


The Audience in Everyday Life argues that a media audience cannot be studied in front of the television alone - their interaction with media does not simply end when the set is turned off. Instead, we must study the daily lives of audiences to find the undercurrents of media influence in everyday life. Applying new developments in cultural anthropology and folklore to media studies, S.Elizabeth Bird offers a series of empirically based audience studies of phenomena that include media scandals, fan culture, representations of race and ethnicity, tabloid journalism, and runaway media hoaxes. Bird provides a range of useful tools and methods for scholars and students interested in the ways media is consumed in everyday life.

Problem Solving in Soil Mechanics (Hardcover): A. Aysen Problem Solving in Soil Mechanics (Hardcover)
A. Aysen
R885 Discovery Miles 8 850 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Although primarily designed as a supplement to Soil Mechanics: Basic Concepts and Engineering Applications, this book can be used as anindependent problem solving text, since there is no specific reference to any equation or figure in the main book and contains problems and fully-worked solutions. Written for university students taking first-degree courses in civil engineering, environmental and agricultural engineering, its main aim is to simulate problem solving learning as well as facilitating self-teaching. The special structure of the book makes it possible to be used in two, three and four year undergraduate courses in soil mechanics. As it includes new and advanced topics tis work book will also be a valuable resource for the practising professional engineer. Although readers are assumed to have prior knowledge in soil mechanics; necessary basic information is included in each worked example.

Optimal Structural Analysis (Hardcover, 2nd Edition): Ali Kaveh Optimal Structural Analysis (Hardcover, 2nd Edition)
Ali Kaveh
R2,627 R1,851 Discovery Miles 18 510 Save R776 (30%) Shipped within 7 - 13 working days

The increasing need to demonstrate structural safety has driven many recent advances in structural technology that require greater accuracy, efficiency and speed in the analysis of their systems. These new methods of analysis have to be sufficiently accurate to cope with complex and large-scale structures. In addition, there is also a growing need to achieve more efficient and optimal use of materials.

Following on from the highly acclaimed and successful first edition, "Optimal Structural Analysis" now deals primarily with the analysis of structural engineering systems, with applicable methods to other types of structures.

Presents efficient and practical methods for optimal analysis of structures. Provides a complete reference for many applications of graph theory, algebraic graph theory and matroids in computational structural mechanics. Substantially revised to include recent developments and applications of the algebraic graph theory and matroids, which are ideally suited for modern computational techniques. Describes recent developments in the matrix force methods of structural analysis. Presents novel applications of graph products in structural mechanics.

"Optimal Structural Analysis" will be of interest to post-graduate students in the fields of structures and mechanics, and applied mathematics particularly discrete mathematics. It will also appeal to practitioners developing programs for structures and finite element analysis.

Geotechnical Engineering - Principles And Practices Of Soil Mechanics And Foundation Engineering (Hardcover): V.N.S. Murthy Geotechnical Engineering - Principles And Practices Of Soil Mechanics And Foundation Engineering (Hardcover)
V.N.S. Murthy
R2,628 Discovery Miles 26 280 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

A must have reference for any engineer involved with foundations, piers, and retaining walls, this remarkably comprehensive volume illustrates soil characteristic concepts with examples that detail a wealth of practical considerations, It covers the latest developments in the design of drilled pier foundations and mechanically stabilized earth retaining wall and explores a pioneering approach for predicting the nonlinear behavior of laterally loaded long vertical and batter piles. As complete and authoritative as any volume on the subject, it discusses soil formation, index properties, and classification; soil permeability, seepage, and the effect of water on stress conditions; stresses due to surface loads; soil compressibility and consolidation; and shear strength characteristics of soils. While this book is a valuable teaching text for advanced students, it is one that the practicing engineer will continually be taking off the shelf long after school lets out. Just the quick reference it affords to a huge range of tests and the appendices filled with essential data, makes it an essential addition to an civil engineering library.

Handbook of Structural Life Assessment (Hardcover): Raouf A. Ibrahim Handbook of Structural Life Assessment (Hardcover)
Raouf A. Ibrahim
R3,378 R2,381 Discovery Miles 23 810 Save R997 (30%) Shipped within 7 - 13 working days

This important, self-contained reference deals with structural life assessment (SLA) and structural health monitoring (SHM) in a combined form. SLA periodically evaluates the state and condition of a structural system and provides recommendations for possible maintenance actions or the end of structural service life. It is a diversified field and relies on the theories of fracture mechanics, fatigue damage process, and reliability theory. For common structures, their life assessment is not only governed by the theory of fracture mechanics and fatigue damage process, but by other factors such as corrosion, grounding, and sudden collision. On the other hand, SHM deals with the detection, prediction, and location of crack development online. Both SLA and SHM are combined in a unified and coherent treatment.

Y. C Wang
R3,902 Discovery Miles 39 020 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days


Steel and Composite Structures: Behaviour and Design for Fire Safety presents a systematic and thorough description of the behaviour of steel and composite structures in fire, and shows how design methods are developed to quantify our understanding.
Quantitative descriptions of fire behaviour, heat transfer in construction elements and structural analysis using numerical methods are all addressed and existing codes and standards for steel and composite fire safety design are critically examined. Using a comprehensive and systematic description of structural fire safety engineering principles, the author explains and illustrates the important difference between the behaviour of isolated structural elements and whole structures under fire conditions.
This book is a vital source of information to structural and fire engineers. It will also be of considerable interest and value to students and researchers in this field.
