The behaviour of steel structures and the criteria used in their design are set out in detail in this book. The book bridges the gap between the methods of analysis and the sizing of structural components. The basis of the limit state design criteria of the latest Australian code for structural steel are explained, and the reader is pointed to the relevant provisions of the code.

This Standard provides a guideline for an engineering approach to the design and subsequent installation of pile foundations. The purpose is to furnish a rational basis for this process, taking into account published model building codes and general standards of practice. It covers such topics as: administrative requirements; pile shaft strength requirements; soil-pile interface strength requirements and capacity; design loads; design stresses; construction and layout guidelines for pile design; and installation guidelines for pile construction. In addition, the Standard includes information on applicable standards from ASTM, AWPA, and ACI. It concludes with an Appendix on partial factors of safety.

Maximize the Quality and Longevity of any Highway Work: Ten peer-reviewed papers give you a timely look at HMA smoothness measurements, specifications, and equipment. Evidence shows that pavements constructed with low roughness measurements perform longer with fewer needed maintenance activities than pavements with a higher level of initial roughness. This collection of papers, written by industry experts, provides and overview of the current approaches to constructing smooth HMA pavements.
Three sections cover: State Agency Perspectives - provides insight into both the history of the development and the implementation of ride quality specifications for new hot mix asphalt pavements in Alabama, Arizona, New Jersey, Virginia, and Tennessee. These papers highlight the wide range of differences in equipment and approaches used to quantify HMA smoothness by state agencies across the country. This information will provide the readers with insight into complexities associated with developing and implementing ride quality specifications. National and International Perspectives - uses analysis of the Long Term Pavement Performance (LTPP) national pavement database to determine the effect of various construction alternatives on the smoothness of the final HMA surface. It also presents correlation equations that relate the traditional, but slow, method of measuring roughness with a hand-operated profilograph to that measured with the state-of-the-art vehicle-mounted. A second paper compares the use of six devices for measuring roughness on recently constructed Taiwan highways. This information will prove especially useful for agencies faced with assessing ride quality in confined urban areas. Equipment Comparisons, Materials Considerations, and Analyses - focuses on how various HMA mixtures, friction courses, and construction practices influence smoothness measurements and pavement quality; and compares the results obtained from an inclinometer profiler and a vehicle mounted profiler when used to test a wide range of HMA mixtures. Correlations between construction practices and their influence on roughness are also presented. It also discusses a new method for analyzing the raw profile obtained by a wide range of profilers. This analysis method can be used to improve data processing for any equipment that collects the raw profile.

Highway Safety Manual, PE Exam Edition This is the Highway Safety Manual, 1st Edition without its 2014 supplement. It is being made available for students preparing to take the Professional Engineers exam, which currently list this edition as a reference, but does not use the supplement. The Highway Safety Manual (HSM) was developed to help measurably reduce the frequency and severity of crashes on American roadways by providing tools for considering safety in the project development process.

The HSM assists practitioners in selecting countermeasures and prioritizing projects, comparing alternatives, and quantifying and predicting the safety performance of roadway elements considered in planning, design, construction, maintenance, and operation. The three-volume HSM features a synthesis of validated highway research, procedures for including safety in project decisions, and analytical tools for predicting impact on road safety.

Now with newly updated seismic and foundation specifications. This major step in improved bridge design and more accurate analysis is expected to lead to bridges exhibiting superior serviceability, enhanced long-term maintainability, and more uniform levels of safety. This edition includes newly updated foundation specifications, as well as updates throughout. Based on the load and- resistance factor design philosophy (LRFD), this book is the result of a five-year research effort under AASHTO's National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Project 12-42, and a continued effort through AASHTO technical committees. Since the 1st edition was published in 1994, the provisions have continued to be updated and improved based on continuing research and the experience of the user community. The new specifications have been systematically tested in trial designs and have now been implemented by all 50 states, with 48 states fully implemented. As of October 2007, the LRFD design code will be mandated by FHWA for all state projects using federal funding. As of 2010, it will apply to all state bridges regardless of funding and to local bridges using federal funding. Supersedes all previous editions and interims. The single-user CD-ROM contains both the standard and metric editions of the AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications 4th Edition and is available with the book.

The "Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete" ("Code") provides minimum requirements for the materials, design, and detailing of structural concrete buildings and, where applicable, nonbuilding structures. This Code addresses structural systems, members, and connections, including cast-in-place, precast, plain, nonprestressed, prestressed, and composite construction. Among the subjects covered are: design and construction for strength, serviceability, and durability; load combinations, load factors, and strength reduction factors; structural analysis methods; deflection limits; mechanical and adhesive anchoring to concrete; development and splicing of reinforcement; construction document information; field inspection and testing; and methods to evaluate the strength of existing structures. "Building Code Requirements for Concrete Thin Shells" (ACI 318.2) is adopted by reference in this Code.The Code user will find that ACI 318-14 has been substantially reorganized and reformatted from previous editions. The principal objectives of this reorganization are to present all design and detailing requirements for structural systems or for individual members in chapters devoted to those individual subjects, and to arrange the chapters in a manner that generally follows the process and chronology of design and construction. Information and procedures that are common to the design of members are located in utility chapters.

Snow Loads: Guide to the Snow Load Provisions of ASCE 7-10 provides detailed authoritative description of the snow load provisions of ASCE/SEI Standard 7-10. With clear, concise language, Snow Loads illustrates the key concepts and guides users in applying the provisions in the design of new and existing structures that are subject to falling or drifting snow. Like its predecessors that accompanied earlier editions of the Standard, this new book includes examples of flat roof loads, sloped roof loads, partial loads, and all types of conventional drift loading. New material includes design examples for leeward drift and sliding loads on adjacent structures and an improved discussion of bays susceptible to ponding loads. The Frequently Asked Questions chapter has been expanded and now covers six additional questions.
