Understanding Structures: Analysis, Materials, Design

Autor Derek Seward
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 22 apr 2014
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.New to this Edition:- Fully updatedAccompanying online resources for this title can be found at These resources are designed to support teaching and learning when using this textbook and are available at no extra cost.

Includes new Eurocodes - though focus on the student gaining a deep understanding of the principles of structural design rather than dealing with each code on a clause-by-clause basis
