Structural Analysis teaches students the basic principles of structural analysis using the classical approach. The chapters are presented in a logical order, moving from an introduction of the topic to an analysis of statically determinate beams, trusses and rigid frames, to the analysis of statistically indeterminate structures. The text includes solved problems to help illustrate the fundamental concepts. Access to interactive software for analyzing plane framed structures is available for download via the texts online companion site. See the Features tab for more info on this software.

Piling is a fast moving field and recent years have seen major advances in theory, methods, testing procedures and equipment. Some of these changes have been driven by the need for economies and efficiency, reduced spoil production and new methods of pile bore support. Advances in theoretical analyses allow pile design to be refined so that piles and pile groups perform to better advantage.

Henry Petroski's lyrical history of bridge builders in America is organized around five engineers: James Eads (inventor of the diving bell, which bridged Mississippi at St. Louis); Theodore Cooper (railroad bridge engineer and designer of the ill-fated Quebec Bridge); Gustav Lindenthal (Hell Gate Bridge, New York); Othmar Ammann (George Washington and Verrazano-Narrow bridges); and David Steinman (Mackinac bridge). Petroski's opening and closing chapters, "Imagine" and "Realize," remind us how a bridge starts out as a dream of engineering, but ends as a reality of compromise and maintenance. Edward Tenner says that "The profound contribution of Engineers of Dreams is to remind us that communication across generations may be the most important bridge of all."

Design, rehabilitate, and maintain modern highway bridges. From steel and reinforced concrete design, to highway layout and basic geometrics, to geotechnical engineering and hydraulics, Demetrios E. Tonia's Bridge Engineering: Design, Rehabilitation, and Maintenance of Modern Highway Bridges fully integrates the resources you need to master the entire bridge-design process. Written with unusual clarity--and packed with timely design examples and case studies plus eye-opening sidebars and graphics--it shows you how to: understand bridge structures, functions, types, and applications; design superstructures and substructures for maximum maintainability; design highway components--approach pavements and slabs, structure geometrics and elevations, roadway alignments, and more; kick off the project--from funding to site surveying and coring; manage the design process--contract documents, reports, plans, client interactions, and more; manage the bridge itself--from creating a structure inventory to extending GIS and CADD functionality.

Great strides have been made in the art of foundation design during the last two decades. In situ testing, site improvement techniques, the use of geogrids in the design of retaining walls, modified ACI codes, and ground deformation modeling using finite elements are but a few of the developments that have significantly advanced foundation engineering in recent years. What has been lacking, however, is a comprehensive reference for foundation engineers that incorporates these state-of-the-art concepts and techniques.

Bringing together in one volume the latest research and information, this book provides a comprehensive account of the selection and use of aggregates in concrete. After an introduction defining the purpose and role of aggregates in concrete, the authors present an overview of aggregate sources and production techniques, followed by a detailed study of their physical, mechanical and chemical properties. This knowledge is then applied to the use of aggregates in both plastic and hardened concretes, and in the overall mix design. Special aggregates and their applications are discussed in detail, as are the main specifications, standards and tests in use.
