Concrete Structures Book Review:

This revised, fully updated second edition covers the analysis, design, and construction of reinforced concrete structures from a real-world perspective. It examines different reinforced concrete elements such as slabs, beams, columns, foundations, basement and retaining walls and pre-stressed concrete incorporating the most up-to-date edition of the American Concrete Institute Code (ACI 318-14) requirements for the design of concrete structures. It includes a chapter on metric system in reinforced concrete design and construction. A new chapter on the design of formworks has been added which is of great value to students in the construction engineering programs along with practicing engineers and architects. This second edition also includes a new appendix with color images illustrating various concrete construction practices, and well-designed buildings. The ACI 318-14 constitutes the most extensive reorganization of the code in the past 40 years. References to the various sections of the ACI 318-14 are provided throughout the book to facilitate its use by students and professionals. Aimed at architecture, building construction, and undergraduate engineering students, the scope of concepts in this volume emphasize simplified and practical methods in the analysis and design of reinforced concrete. This is distinct from advanced, graduate engineering texts, where treatment of the subject centers around the theoretical and mathematical aspects of design. As in the first edition, this book adopts a step-by-step approach to solving analysis and design problems in reinforced concrete. Using a highly graphical and interactive approach in its use of detailed images and self-experimentation exercises, “Concrete Structures, Second Edition,” is tailored to the most practical questions and fundamental concepts of design of structures in reinforced concrete. The text stands as an ideal learning resource for civil engineering, building construction, and architecture students as well as a valuable reference for concrete structural design professionals in practice.

Simplified Structural Analysis and Design for Architects Book Review:

Simplified Structural Analysis and Design for Architects covers the basics of structural analysis and design in clear, practical terms. The book clarifies complex engineering topics through accessible, detailed examples and sample problems. Early chapters discuss the principles of statics, strength of materials, and structural analysis which represent the underlying basic material of structures and structural technology. The second part of the text focuses on steel structures, wood structures, and concrete structures, and outlines the design methods of some structural elements in a simplified manner and using some typical design examples. This edition includes two new chapters on the analysis of indeterminate structures and the simplified analysis of concrete indeterminate structures, as well as clearer figures and tables printed throughout. The final chapters of the book discuss the analysis of indeterminate structures. Concise and to the point, Simplified Structural Analysis and Design for Architects is particularly suitable for undergraduate and graduate architecture courses and courses in structural technology. The book is also a useful tool for practicing architects wishing to review the topic, and architecture graduates who are preparing for the licensing examination. Rima Taher earned her doctorate in civil engineering and building technology from École Nationale des Ponts et Chaussées in Paris. She is a senior university lecturer in the College of Architecture and Design and a part-time instructor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the New Jersey Institute of Technology. She is a practicing civil/structural engineer through her consulting firm in New Jersey, Taher Engineering, LLC. Dr. Taher is an expert in the field of design and construction of low-rise buildings for high winds and hurricanes. She has given presentations on this subject to the Chilean Ministry of Education and the Inter-American Development Bank and at the annual conference of the Construction Specifications Institute in Canada in 2011. Dr. Taher serves as president of the Structural Engineering Institute Chapter at the North Jersey branch of the American Society of Civil Engineers.

Building Structures Book Review:

The comprehensive reference on the basics of structural analysis and design, now updated with the latest considerations of building technology Structural design is an essential element of the building process, yet one of the most difficult to learn. While structural engineers do the detailed consulting work for a building project, architects need to know enough structural theory and analysis to design a building. Most texts on structures for architects focus narrowly on the mathematical analysis of isolated structural components, yet Building Structures looks at the general concepts with selected computations to understand the role of the structure as a building subsystem—without the complicated mathematics. New to this edition is a complete discussion of the LRFD method of design, supplemented by the ASD method, in addition to: The fundamentals of structural analysis and design for architects A glossary, exercise problems, and a companion website and instructor's manual Material ideally suited for preparing for the ARE exam Profusely illustrated throughout with drawings and photographs, and including new case studies, Building Structures, Third Edition is perfect for nonengineers to understand and visualize structural design.
