All buildings in the UK must now adhere to the recently published wind code BS 6399-2. The introduction of a new code is often traumatic, especially so in this case,as the previous code has been in place for 25 years. The author's considerable practical knowledge of wind engineering, together with his involvement in drafting this standard and hi

This book analyses the effects of moving loads on elastic and inelastic solids, elements and parts of structures and on elastic media, namely beams, continuous beams, beams on elastic foundations, rigid-plastic beams and thin-walled beams, frames, arches, strings, plates elastic spaces and half spaces etc. Vibrations in these structures are produce

Finite Element Analysis in Geotechnical Engineering: Volume One - Theory

Author(s): D. M. Potts and L. Zdravkovic, Imperial College
Publication date: 09 April 1999
ISBN: 9780727727534
Stock level: Low stock
£135.25
This comprehensive new two-volume work provides the reader with a detailed insight into the use of the finite element method in geotechnical engineering. As specialist knowledge required to perform geotechnical finite element analysis is not normally part of a single engineering degree course, this lucid work will prove invaluable. It brings togeth

Guidelines for the Supplementary Load Testing of Bridges

Author(s): Institution of Civil Engineers, National Steering Committee for the Load Testing of Bridges
Publication date: 08 April 1998
ISBN: 9780727727374
Stock level: Out of stock
£25.50
As of January 1999, under European Union ruling, 40 tonne vehicles have been allowed on UK roads, leading to a challenging programme of bridge assessment. In order to determine the true load carrying capacity of bridges and to avert a vast programme of unnecessary bridge strengthening and replacement schemes, bridge owners are turning increasingly

Bridge Modification 2: Stronger and Safer Bridges

Author(s): Edited by B Pritchard, Consulting Engineer
Publication date: 01 March 1997
ISBN: 9780727725899
Stock level: Low stock
£46.50
Changes in vehicle weight limits and revisions to safety standards inevitably increase the demands placed on bridges. Increases in traffic flow seen over the past years also mean that many bridges are carrying much greater loads than their designers ever anticipated. Following from the very successful Bridge Modification conference in 1994, this

Design of Fastenings in Concrete

Author(s): Comité Euro-International du Béton
Publication date: 17 April 1996
ISBN: 9780727735669
Stock level: Low stock
£57.25
Although a large number of fastenings assembles are installed every day, understanding in the engineering community of their behaviour is limited, and there is no generally accepted design method. Design of fastenings in concrete overcomes this. This design guide is based on a safety concept using partial safety factors taken from the CEB/FIB Mo
