Seismic Design of Buildings to Eurocode 8 (Hardcover, 2nd New edition): Ahmed Y. Elghazouli Seismic Design of Buildings to Eurocode 8 (Hardcover, 2nd New edition)
Ahmed Y. Elghazouli
R2,358 Discovery Miles 23 580 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This book focuses on the seismic design of building structures and their foundations to Eurocode 8. It covers the principles of seismic design in a clear but brief manner and then links these concepts to the provisions of Eurocode 8. It addresses the fundamental concepts related to seismic hazard, ground motion models, basic dynamics, seismic analysis, siting considerations, structural layout, and design philosophies, then leads to the specifics of Eurocode 8. Code procedures are applied with the aid of walk-through design examples which, where possible, deal with a common case study in most chapters. As well as an update throughout, this second edition incorporates three new and topical chapters dedicated to specific seismic design aspects of timber buildings and masonry structures, as well as base-isolation and supplemental damping. There is renewed interest in the use of sustainable timber buildings, and masonry structures still represent a popular choice in many areas. Moreover, seismic isolation and supplemental damping can offer low-damage solutions which are being increasingly considered in practice. The book stems primarily from practical short courses on seismic design which have been run over a number of years and through the development Eurocode 8. The contributors to this book are either specialist academics with significant consulting experience in seismic design, or leading practitioners who are actively engaged in large projects in seismic areas. This experience has provided significant insight into important areas in which guidance is required.

Evangelos Sapountzakis, Manolis Papadrakakis
R2,798 R2,588 Discovery Miles 25 880 Save R210 (8%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Divided into 12 chapters, Matrix Methods for Advanced Structural Analysis begins with an introduction to the analysis of structures (fundamental concepts and basic steps of structural analysis, primary structural members and their modeling, brief historical overview of methods of static analysis, programming principles, and suggestions for the rational use of computer programs). This is followed by the principal steps of the Direct Stiffness Method including plane trusses, plane framed structures, space trusses, and space framed structures. The case of plane or space framed structure, including possible rigid elements at their beam ends (rigid joints) is discussed in detail. Other topics discussed in this reference include the procedure for analyzing beams with internal releases (partial connection of beam elements) and elastic hinges, as well as the alternative handling of internal releases by modifying the element stiffness matrix. Furthermore, the Method of Substructures is demonstrated for the solution of large-scale models in terms of the associated number of degrees of freedom.

Derek Seward
R1,088 R988 Discovery Miles 9 880 Save R100 (9%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

A highly illustrated textbook explaining the fundamentals of structural analysis, materials and design in one integrated volume. This integrated approach enables the student to tackle realistic design problems in the shortest possible time, and, because the relevance of the theory is immediately relevant, it is highly motivational. The text follows the process of design from initial concept through to final details. It focuses on using real data and avoiding a complex mathematical approach to encourage a feel and awareness for the physical behaviour of structures. Each stage of the design process is illustrated by a realistic numerical example which is based on genuine design data. The book is up-to-date for the Eurocodes. The book is intended for first year undergraduates and BTEC students of civil and structural engineering, building, architecture and surveying. Because it contains a lot of real design data, it may also be useful as a work of reference for the non-specialist practitioner.

For those who find difficulty in communicating with engineers, Professor Gordon is a godsend

His The Science of Strong Materials made plain the secrets of materials science, and now with this volume he explains the importance and properties of different structures in a way, which will appeal to everyone.

Engineers will of course understand why the Greeks took the wheels off their chariots at night, why we get lumbago, why birds have feathers and how much science is involved in dressmaking as well as the strength of bridges, boats and aeroplanes. Professor Gordon explains all these things, showing how the need to be strong and to support various loads has influenced the development of all sorts of creatures and devices - including man. Lively and informative, this book describes the structural element in nature, technology and everyday life from modern viewpoints.

Isambard Kingdom Brunel changed the world as we know it. He was responsible for building the Great Western Railway main line, introducing regular steamship travel across the Atlantic, building the first tunnel under a major river, and constructing docks, harbours and bridges that enabled Britain to expand and grow as the powerhouse of the world. Without his foresight and imagination, it is possible that nineteenth-century Britain might have been very different. There have been many books written about the man himself, but this book concentrates upon the structures, buildings and legacy of Brunel, introducing the reader to this great engineer and embarking upon a tour around Britain that reveals the many locations with a Brunel connection.

This book contains a collection of major research contributions over the last decade in the area of composite materials and sandwich structures supported by the Of?ce of Naval Research (ONR) under the direction of Dr. Yapa D. S. Rajapakse. The Solid Mechanics Research Program at ONR supports research in mechanics of high performancematerialsfortheeffectivedesignofdurableandaffordableNavalstr- tures. Such structures operate in severe environments, and are designed to withstand complex multi-axial loading conditions, including highly dynamic loadings. The - fective design of these structures requires an understanding of the deformation and failure characteristics of structural materials, and the ability to predict and control their performance characteristics. The major focus is on mechanics of composite materials and composite sandwich structures. The program deals with understa- ing and modeling the physical processes involved in the response of glass-?ber and carbon-?ber reinforced composite materials and composite sandwich structures to static, cyclic, and dynamic, multi-axial loading conditions, in severe environments (sea water, moisture, temperature extremes, and hydrostatic pressure). This anthology consists of 30 chapters written by ONR contractors and rec- nized experts in their ?elds and serves as a reference and guide for future research.

Gain a stronger foundation with optimal ground improvement

Before you break ground on a new structure, you need to analyze the structure of the ground. Expert analysis and optimization of the geo-materials on your site can mean the difference between a lasting structure and a school in a sinkhole. Sometimes problematic geology is expected because of the location, but other times it's only unearthed once construction has begun. You need to be able to quickly adapt your project plan to include an improvement to unfavorable ground before the project can safely continue.

"Principles and Practice of Ground Improvement" is the only comprehensive, up-to-date compendium of solutions to this critical aspect of civil engineering. Dr. Jie Han, registered Professional Engineer and preeminent voice in geotechnical engineering, is the ultimate guide to the methods and best practices of ground improvement. Han walks you through various ground improvement solutions and provides theoretical and practical advice for determining which technique fits each situation.Follow examples to find solutions to complex problemsComplete homework problems to tackle issues that present themselves in the fieldStudy design procedures for each technique to simplify field implementationBrush up on modern ground improvement technologies to keep abreast of all available options

"Principles and Practice of Ground Improvement" can be used as a textbook, and includes Powerpoint slides for instructors. It's also a handy field reference for contractors and installers who actually implement plans. There are many ground improvement solutions out there, but there is no single right answer to every situation. "Principles and Practice of Ground Improvement" will give you the information you need to analyze the problem, then design and implement the best possible solution.
