Wai-Fah Chen, E. M. Lui ... 1768 pages - Publisher: CRC Press; 2nd edition (February, 2005) ... Language: English - ISBN-10: 0849315697 - ISBN-13: 978-0849315695 ...

Continuing the tradition of the best-selling Handbook of Structural Engineering, this second edition is a comprehensive reference to the broad spectrum of structural engineering, encapsulating the theoretical, practical, and computational aspects of the field. The authors address a myriad of topics, covering both traditional and innovative approaches to analysis, design, and rehabilitation.The second edition has been expanded and reorganized to be more informative and cohesive. It also follows the developments that have emerged in the field since the previous edition, such as advanced analysis for structural design, performance-based design of earthquake-resistant structures, lifecycle evaluation and condition assessment of existing structures, the use of high-performance materials for construction, and design for safety. Additionally, the book includes numerous tables, charts, and equations, as well as extensive references, reading lists, and websites for further study or more in-depth information. Emphasizing practical applications and easy implementation, this text reflects the increasingly global nature of engineering, compiling the efforts of an international panel of experts from industry and academia. This is a necessity for anyone studying or practicing in the field of structural engineering. New to this edition: Fundamental theories of structural dynamics + Advanced analysis + Wind and earthquake-resistant design + Design of prestressed concrete, masonry, timber, and glass structures + Properties, behavior, and use of high-performance steel, concrete, and fiber-reinforced polymers + Semirigid frame structures + Structural bracing + Structural design for fire safety.

... Engineering is an interesting and vast field. New technologies are discovered or invented every day, and the older ones must get updated In the past, engineers used to search libraries or go through various books to keep up with the recent technological advancements or find the solution to various problems. Nowadays, it is possible to do so with the help of just one click.
