The new 2nd Edition of the Handbook of Structural Engineering
The 2nd edition of the Handbook of Structural Engineering has been expanded and reorganized to be more informative and cohesive. The content covers not only traditional, but also novel and innovative approaches to analysis, design, and rehabilitation problems, and follows the developments that have emerged in the field since the previous edition, such as advanced analysis for structural design, performance-based design of earthquake-resistant structures, lifecycle evaluation and condition assessment of existing structures, the use of high-performance materials for construction, and design for safety.
Information is organized in an easy to follow format, and also contains numerous tables, charts, and equations, as well as extensive references, reading lists, and websites for further study or more in-depth information. The content places emphasis on practical applications and easy implementation, this text reflects the increasingly global nature of engineering, compiling the efforts of an international panel of experts from industry and academia.
This best-selling handbook serves as a comprehensive reference to the broad spectrum of structural engineering, encapsulating the theoretical, practical, and computational aspects of the field. The authors address a myriad of topics, covering both traditional and innovative approaches to analysis, design, and rehabilitation. The Handbook of Structural Engineering is a necessity for anyone studying or practicing in the field of structural engineering. 1,768 pp. New to this edition:
