Strength of Materials and Structures Book Review:

Engineers need to be familiar with the fundamental principles and concepts in materials and structures in order to be able to design structurers to resist failures. For 4 decades, this book has provided engineers with these fundamentals. Thoroughly updated, the book has been expanded to cover everything on materials and structures that engineering students are likely to need. Starting with basic mechanics, the book goes on to cover modern numerical techniques such as matrix and finite element methods. There is also additional material on composite materials, thick shells, flat plates and the vibrations of complex structures. Illustrated throughout with worked examples, the book also provides numerous problems for students to attempt. New edition introducing modern numerical techniques, such as matrix and finite element methods Covers requirements for an engineering undergraduate course on strength of materials and structures

Steel Structures, 4th Edition Book Review:

At the end of year 2005, new AISC Specification was released that contained formulas for both Allowable Stress Design and Load and Resistance Factor Design in non-dimensional format to be used for both the FPS and SI units. In year 2010, this specification for steel structures design and the seismic provisions were updated. This specification was further revised in 2016. This book is prepared in the light of the new Specifications. AASHTO LRFD Specifications are used to present the concepts of bridge loading and the design procedure. As in the first edition, in place of explaining the various aspects of design such as checking various strength capacities, stability requirements and serviceability limits in separate chapters, complete design including all the major steps of design are presented in individual units for various types of members. It is expected that this procedure gives true picture of design process to the beginners and the practicing engineers. This book is more useful if it is used along with another publication “LRFD Steel Design Aids”, termed as Design Aids in this book. The flow charts given in different sections of this book may easily be computerized to get custom-made computer programs for personal use. International system of units (SI) is used throughout the book. Suggestions for further improvement of the presentation will be highly appreciated and will be incorporated in the future editions.

Structural Analysis, or the ‘Theory of Structures’, is an important subject for civil engineering students who are required to analyze and design structures. It is a vast field and is largely taught at the undergraduate level. A few topics like Matrix Method and Plastic Analysis are also taught at the postgraduate level and in structural engineering electives. The entire course has been covered in two volumes – Structural Analysis I and II. Structural Analysis I deals with the basics of structural analysis, measurements of deflection, various types of deflection, loads and influence lines, etc.

Steel Structures Book Review:

The fourth edition of this popular steel structures book contains references to both Eurocodes and British Standards. All the material has been updated where necessary, and new and revised worked examples are included. Sections on the meaning, the purpose and limits of structural design, sustainable steel building and energy saving have been updated. The initial chapters cover the essentials of structural engineering and structural steel design. The remainder of the book is dedicated to a detail examination of the analysis and design of selected types of structures, presenting complex designs in an understandable and user-friendly way. These structures include a range of single and multi-storey buildings, floor systems and wide-span buildings. Each design example is illustrated with applications based on current Eurocodes or British Standard design data, thus assisting the reader to share in the environment of the design process that normally takes place in practical offices and develop real design skills. Two new chapters on the design of cased steel columns and plate girders with and without rigid end posts to EC4 & EC3 are included too. References have been fully updated and include useful website addresses. Emphasis is placed on practical design with a view to helping undergraduate students and newly qualified engineers bridge the gap between academic study and work in the design office. Practising engineers who need a refresher course on up-to-dates methods of design and analysis to EC3 and EC4 will also find the book useful, and numerous worked examples are included.

The Behaviour and Design of Steel Structures to EC3 Book Review:

The fully revised fourth edition of this successful textbook fills a void which will arise when British designers start using the European steel code EC3 instead of the current steel code BS5950. The principal feature of the forth edition is the discussion of the behaviour of steel structures and the criteria used in design according to the British version of EC3. Thus it serves to bridge the gap which too often occurs when attention is concentrated on methods of analysis and the sizing of structural components. Because emphasis is placed on the development of an understanding of behaviour, many analytical details are either omitted in favour of more descriptive explanations, or are relegated to appendices. The many worked examples both illustrate the behaviour of steel structures and exemplify details of the design process. The Behaviour and Design of Steel Structures to EC3 is a key text for senior undergraduate and graduate students, and an essential reference tool for practising structural engineers in the UK and other countries.

Structure Determination by X-Ray Crystallography Book Review:

Crystallography may be described as the science of the structure of materi als, using this word in its widest sense, and its ramifications are apparent over a broad front of current scientific endeavor. It is not surprising, therefore, to find that most universities offer some aspects of crystallography in their undergraduate courses in the physical sciences. It is the principal aim of this book to present an introduction to structure determination by X-ray crystal lography that is appropriate mainly to both final-year undergraduate studies in crystallography, chemistry, and chemical physics, and introductory post graduate work in this area of crystallography. We believe that the book will be of interest in other disciplines, such as physics, metallurgy, biochemistry, and geology, where crystallography has an important part to play. In the space of one book, it is not possible either to cover all aspects of crystallography or to treat all the subject matter completely rigorously. In particular, certain mathematical results are assumed in order that their applications may be discussed. At the end of each chapter, a short bibliog raphy is given, which may be used to extend the scope of the treatment given here. In addition, reference is made in the text to specific sources of information. We have chosen not to discuss experimental methods extensively, as we consider that this aspect of crystallography is best learned through practical experience, but an attempt has been made to simulate the interpretive side of experimental crystallography in both examples and exercises.
