This book compiles state-of-the-art information on the behavior, analysis, and design of concrete beams containing transverse openings.Discussions includethe need, effects, and classification of openings as well as the general requirements for fulfilling designpure bending, combined bending, and shear - illustrated with numerical examplestorsion alone or in combination with bending and shearlarge rectangular openings as well as opening size and... more...

This volume in matrix structural analysis is written for senior undergraduate students. Matrix structural analysis is presented in the various chapters for structures modeled as beams, plane frames, grid frames, space frames, plane trusses, and space trusses. An introduction to the related topic of the finite element method is also given. Throughout the book, illustrative examples are given with detailed solutions derived from hand calculations and... more...

Bringing together a wide array of structural types and covering the behaviour and design of both steel and reinforced concrete (prestressing inclusive), the author employs an integrated qualitative and quantitative approach to the examination of each structural element. Topics are introduced in a logical manner, building on concepts discussed and explained in previous chapters, providing readers with a sound understanding of the universal principles of... more...

Developments in numerical methods and higher-speed computing are providing rapid advances in the analysis and design of complex structures so rapid that it can be difficult for engineers to keep abreast of this expanding knowledge. Modeling Complex Engineering Structures provides an overview of cutting-edge developments in computational theory and techniques as currently applied in various fields of structural analysis, in the United States and... more...

This book presents a series of integrated computer programs in Fortran-90 for the dynamic analysis of structures, using the finite element method. Two dimensional continuum structures such as walls are covered along with skeletal structures such as rigid jointed frames and plane grids. Response to general dynamic loading of single degree freedom systems is calculated, and the author also examines multi degree of freedom systems (including earthquake... more...


Many building projects are the subject of claims – the assertion of a right, usually by the contractor, to an extension of the contract period or an additional payment under the terms of the building contract. Many of these claims are unsound or ill-founded, often because the basic principles are misunderstood.This highly regarded book examines the legal basis of claims for extensions of time and additional payment, and what can and cannot be claimed... more...

Fundamentals of Structural Analysis fourth edition, introduces engineering and architectural students to the basic techniques for analyzing the most common structural elements, including beams, trusses, frames, cables, and arches. The text covers the classical methods of analysis for determinate and indeterminate structures, and provides an introduction to the matrix formulation on which computer analysis is based. This edition features an... more...

Theoretical Foundation Engineering provides in-depth reviews of the existing literature on lateral earth pressure, sheet pile walls, ultimate bearing capacity of shallow foundations, holding capacity of plate and helical anchors in sand and clay, and slope stability analysis. The discussion of the ultimate bearing capacity of shallow foundations is comprehensive, and the review of earth anchors is unique to this book. The treatment is primarily... more...

This comprehensive textbook, now in its sixth edition, combines classical and matrix-based methods of structural analysis and develops them concurrently. New solved examples and problems have been added, giving over 140 worked examples and more than 400 problems with answers. The introductory chapter on structural analysis modelling gives a good grounding to the beginner, showing how structures can be modelled as beams, plane or space frames and... more...

The emphasis here is to explore the key issues influencing the culture, strategies and management operations of professional practices. The focus is upon established practices from growing ones to large international firms in the built environment. A key aim of the book is to promote aspects of management by function and activities, with discipline acting as context rather than the primary focus.The book is structured into sections around 3 main... more...
