A practical guide to analyzing soil and structural systems using
Excel spreadsheets and VBA macro programs (in open-source code)
that are provided on the accompanying CD.
This book gives readers the tools to understand the methods such
as finite element analysis used to analyze common problems in
structural engineering, foundation engineering and soil-structure
interaction. The book has value just based on its instructions in
Excel spreadsheets and the Visual Basic for Applications (VBA)
macro programming language alone. By providing an expert system and
guidance to the reader in its use through examples, the author
shows the methods and simple modelling techniques that demystify
soil-structure applications by presenting the essentials in a clear
and concise way.
The book also addresses some of the disappointments in
geo-engineering by providing tools to calculate deformations,
implement soil-structure interaction procedures, provide simple
computer solutions, while incorporating proper soil and rock
properties in the analyses. Can be used by students or practicing
professional engineers as a hands-on self-study guide as prewritten
complete Excel spreadsheets and VBA programs are applied to many
different Civil Engineering example problemsVBA code techniques and
its use and programming are explained but a working knowledge is
not required to use the spreadsheet and programs
providedComputations are performed using VBA macro programs getting
input data from worksheet cells (whereby the spreadsheet functions
as a pre-processor) or from input data files
"Robert L. Sogge has a background which includes training,
teaching, research and practical consulting in the area of
soil-structure interaction. He achieved his PhD in Civil
Engineering at the University of Arizona, USA, and practices in
that state and California. He has developed many of these computer
programs in the pursuit of his work as a consultant."
