Preface and Acknowledgments I wrote the Structural Engineering Reference Manual to be a comprehensive resource that helps you prepare for the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) 16-hour Structural Engineering (SE) exam. As such, each of this book’s eight chapters presents the most useful equations in the exam-adopted codes and standards, and each chapter also provides guidelines for selecting and applying these equations. For this eighth edition, all nomenclature, equations, examples, and practice problems have been checked and updated so that they are consistent with NCEESadopted codes and specifications. Additionally, significant changes have been made to the following chapters. Chapter 1, Reinforced Concrete Design, includes significant new material on concrete anchoring. Existing content was revised to conform to the Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete and Commentary, 2011 edition. Chapter 4, Structural Steel Design, includes new material on nominal flexural strength, compact sections, noncompact sections, slender sections, lateral-torsional buckling, moment redistribution in continuous beams, buckling, bolt types and connections, and welds. Existing content was revised to conform to the Steel Construction Manual, fourteenth edition. Chapter 5, Timber Design, includes new material on load combinations, reference design values, and adjustment factors. The chapter was also updated to include both exam-adopted ASD and LRFD design methods. Existing content was revised to conform to the National Design Specification for Wood Construction ASD/LRFD, 2012 edition. Chapter 6, Reinforced Masonry Design, includes significant new material on required strength, allowable stress, masonry beams in flexure, reinforcement requirements, the design of reinforced masonry beams, minimum and maximum reinforcement area, shear beam design, masonry column design, and anchor bolt placement and design. The chapter was also updated in order to present both exam-adopted ASD and SD design methods. Existing content was revised to conform to the Building Code Requirements and Specification for Masonry Structures, 2011 edition. Chapter 7, Lateral Forces, includes new material on shear wall-frame systems, steel systems, subdiaphragms, seismic parameters and building height, and wind loads. Existing content was revised to conform to the Seismic Design Manual, 2012 edition. Thank you to Arthur Richard Chianello, PE, for technically reviewing the new content in Chapter 1 and Chapter 4, and David R. Connor, SE, PE, for technically reviewing the new content in Chapter 5 and Chapter 6, and to Ralph Arcena, EIT, for performing the calculation checks. At PPI, the task of making the vision of a new edition into a reality fell to the Product Development and Implementation Department team that consisted of Hilary Flood, associate acquisitions editor; Nicole Evans and Ellen Nordman, associate project managers; Tracy Katz, lead editor; Thomas Bliss, Sierra Cirimelli-Low, Tyler Hayes, Julia Lopez, and Ian A. Walker, copy editors; Tom Bergstrom, production associate and technical illustrator; Kate Hayes, production associate; Cathy Schrott, production services manager; Sarah Hubbard, director of product development and implementation; and Jenny Lindeburg King, associate editor-in-chief. Finally, if you find an error in this book, please let me know by using the error reporting form on the PPI website at ppi2pass.com/errata. Valid submitted errors will be posted to the errata page and incorporated into future printings of this book. Alan Williams, PhD, SE, FICE, C Eng

Mit großer Spannung wurde sie erwartet, auch von Nicht-Katholiken: Die Umwelt-Enzyklika von Papst Franziskus nimmt die heute entscheidenden Themen in den Blick; es geht um die geht um soziale, ökologische und politische Zusammenhänge. Wohl selten war ein päpstliches Schreiben so aktuell und brisant und vor allem relevant für alle Gesellschaftsschichten und Menschen weltweit. Mit "Laudato si" beweist Franziskus, dass die Kirche nach wie vor eine unverzichtbare Stimme im Diskurs zur Gestaltung der modernen Welt ist. Wer verstehen will, wie Papst und Kirche die großen Herausforderungen unserer Zeit bestehen wollen, kommt an diesem Werk nicht vorbei. Ein Muss für jeden, der an den drängenden Fragen unserer Zeit interessiert ist.

Geschichte der Baustatik

Auf der Suche nach dem Gleichgewicht

Was wissen Bauingenieure heute über die Herkunft der Baustatik? Wann und welcherart setzte das statische Rechnen im Entwurfsprozess ein? Wir ahnen wohl, dass die Entwicklung von Berechnungsmethoden und -verfahren im engen Zusammenhang mit der Entdeckung neuer Baumaterialien und der Hervorbringung und Entfaltung von Tragformen stehen. Das vorliegende Buch zeichnet die Entstehung von Statik und Festigkeitslehre als die Entwicklung vom geometrischen Denken der Renaissance über die klassische Mechanik bis hin zur modernen Strukturmechanik nach. Eine Einführung eröffnet mit kurzen Einblicken in zwölf verbreitete Berechnungsverfahren den Zugang zu über 500 Jahren Geschichte der Baustatik aus der Berechnungspraxis der Gegenwart. Beginnend mit den Festigkeitsbetrachtungen von Leonardo und Galilei wird der Herausbildung einzelner baustatischer Verfahren und ihrer Formierung zur Baustatik nachgegangen. Dabei gelingt es dem Autor auch, die Unterschiedlichkeit der Akteure hinsichtlich ihrer technisch-wissenschaftlichen Profile und ihrer Persönlichkeiten plastisch zu schildern und das Verständnis für den jeweiligen gesellschaftshistorischen Kontext zu erzeugen. 243 Kurzporträts maßgeblicher Protagonisten der Mechanik, Mathematik, des Maschinen- und Flugzeugbaus und der Baustatik sowie eine umfangreiche Bibliografie machen das Werk zusätzlich zu einer unschätzbaren Fundgrube. Mit diesem Buch liegt der Fachwelt das einzige geschlossene Werk über die Geschichte der Baustatik vor. Es lädt den Leser zur Entdeckung der Wurzeln der modernen Rechenmethoden ein. Die 1. Auflage von 2002 war schnell vergriffen. Für die 2. Auflage ergänzte der Autor sein Werk um wichtige Reisen in die Geschichte der Disziplinbildung: Erddrucktheorie, Traglastverfahren, historische Lehrbuchanalyse, Stahlbrückenbau, Schalentheorie, Computerstatik, Finite-Elemente-Methode, Computergestützte Graphostatik, Historische Technikwissenschaft.

Developed to comply with the fifth edition of the AASHTO LFRD Bridge Design Specifications [2010]––Simplified LRFD Bridge Design is "How To" use the Specifications book. Most engineering books utilize traditional deductive practices, beginning with in-depth theories and progressing to the application of theories. The inductive method in the book uses alternative approaches, literally teaching backwards. The book introduces topics by presenting specific design examples. Theories can be understood by students because they appear in the text only after specific design examples are presented, establishing the need to know theories. The emphasis of the book is on step-by-step design procedures of highway bridges by the LRFD method, and "How to Use" the AASHTO Specifications to solve design problems. Some of the design examples and practice problems covered include: Load combinations and load factors Strength limit states for superstructure design Design Live Load HL- 93 Un-factored and Factored Design Loads Fatigue Limit State and fatigue life; Service Limit State Number of design lanes Multiple presence factor of live load Dynamic load allowance Distribution of Live Loads per Lane Wind Loads, Earthquake Loads Plastic moment capacity of composite steel-concrete beam LRFR Load Rating Simplified LRFD Bridge Design is a study guide for engineers preparing for the PE examination as well as a classroom text for civil engineering students and a reference for practicing engineers. Eight design examples and three practice problems describe and introduce the use of articles, tables, and figures from the AASHTO LFRD Bridge Design Specifications. Whenever articles, tables, and figures in examples appear throughout the text, AASHTO LRFD specification numbers are also cited, so that users can cross-reference the material.
