This third edition of a popular textbook is a concise single-volume introduction to the design of structural elements in concrete, steel, timber, masonry, and composites. It provides design principles and guidance in line with both British Standards and Eurocodes, current as of late 2007. Topics discussed include the philosophy of design, basic structural concepts, and material properties. After an introduction and overview of structural design, the book is conveniently divided into sections based on British Standards and Eurocodes.

The second edition of this popular textbook provides, in a single volume, an introduction to the design of structural elements in concrete, steel, timber and masonry. Part One explains the principles and philosophy of design, basic techniques, and structural concepts. Designing in accordance with British Standard codes of practice follows in Part Two, with numerous diagrams and worked examples. In Part Three the Eurocodes are introduced, and their main differences to British codes are explained. Comprehensively revised and updated to comply with the latest British Standards and Eurocodes, the second edition also features a new section on the use and design of composite materials. With an accompanying solutions manual available online, Design of Structural Elements is the ideal course text for students of civil and structural engineering, on degree, HNC and HND courses.

Preface to the third edition Since publication of the second edition of Design of Structural Elements there have been two major developments in the field of structural engineering which have suggested this new edition. The first and foremost of these is that the Eurocodes for concrete, steel, masonry and timber design have now been converted to full EuroNorm (EN) status and, with the possible exception of the steel code, all the associated UK National Annexes have also been finalised and published. Therefore, these codes can now be used for structural design, although guidance on the timing and circumstances under which they must be used is still awaited. Thus, the content of Chapters 8 to 11 on, respectively, the design of concrete, steel, masonry and timber structures has been completely revised to comply with the EN versions of the Eurocodes for these materials. The opportunity has been used to expand Chapter 10 and include several worked examples on the design of masonry walls subject to either vertical or lateral loading or a combination of both. The second major development is that a number of small but significant amendments have been made to the 1997 edition of BS 8110: Part 1 on concrete design, and new editions of BS 5628: Parts 1 and 3 on masonry design have recently been published. These and other national standards, e.g. BS 5950 for steel design and BS 5268 for timber design, are still widely used in the UK and beyond. This situation is likely to persist for some years, and therefore the decision was taken to retain the chapters on British Standards and where necessary update the material to reflect latest design recommendations. This principally affects the material in Chapters 3 and 5 on concrete and masonry design. The chapters on Eurocodes are not self-contained but include reference to relevant chapters on British Standards. This should not present any problems to readers familiar with British Standards, but will mean that readers new to this subject will have to refer to two chapters from time to time to get the most from this book. This is not ideal, but should result in the reader becoming familiar with both British and European practices, which is probably necessary during the transition phase from British Standards to Eurocodes.

Designing structures to withstand the effects of fire is challenging, and requires a series of complex design decisions. This third edition of Fire Safety Engineering Design of Structures provides practising fire safety engineers with the tools to design structures to withstand fires. This text details standard industry design decisions, and offers expert design advice, with relevant historical data. It includes extensive data on materials’ behaviour and modeling -- concrete, steel, composite steel-concrete, timber, masonry, and aluminium. While weighted to the fire sections of the Eurocodes, this book also includes historical data to allow older structures to be assessed. It extensively covers fire damage investigation, and includes as far back as possible, the background to code methods to enable the engineer to better understand why certain procedures are adopted. What’s new in the Third Edition? An overview in the first chapter explains the types of design decisions required for optimum fire performance of a structure, and demonstrates the effect of temperature rise on structural performance of structural elements. It extends the sections on less common engineering materials. The section on computer modelling now includes material on coupled heat and mass transfer, enabling a better understanding of the phenomenon of spalling in concrete. It includes a series of worked examples, and provides an extensive reference section. Readers require a working knowledge of structural mechanics and methods of structural design at ambient conditions, and are helped by some understanding of thermodynamics of heat transfer. This book serves as a resource for engineers working in the field of fire safety, consultants who regularly carry out full fire safety design for structure, and researchers seeking background information. Dr John Purkiss is a chartered civil and structural engineer/consultant and former lecturer in structural engineering at Aston University, UK. Dr Long-Yuan Li is Professor of Structural Engineering at Plymouth University, UK, and a Fellow of the Institution of Structural Engineers.
