This text presents the results of a Japanese national research project carried out in 1988-1993, usually referred to as the New RC Project. Developing advanced reinforced concrete building structures with high strength and high quality materials under its auspices, the project aimed to promote construction of high-rise reinforced concrete buildings in highly seismic areas such as Japan. The project covered all the aspects of reinforced concrete structures, namely materials, structural elements, structural design, construction and feasibility studies. In addition to presenting these results, the text includes two chapters giving an elementary explanation of modern analytical techniques - finite element analysis and earthquake response analysis.

Based on the understanding that the strength of an element or structure can be determined independently of the design philosophy, the 2005 unified ANSI/AISC 360-o5 Specification for Structural Steel Buildings Successfully brought together the two divergent approaches to the design of steel structures, the ASD and the LRFD. Unified Design of Steel Structures demystifies this new specification for both practicing engineers and students. Ranging from the fundamentals to more advanced topics, you'll master the essentials of unified design, including: The principles of limit states design and how these principles are incorporated into both LRFD and ASD approaches + The development of load factors, resistance factors, and safety factors + The development of load factors, resistance factors, and safety factors. + The various shapes and grades of steel available for construction. + The various member types-tension, compression, and bending + Plate girders, the design of bracing, and composite members + Connection design-potential connection types and the strength of bolts, welds, and connecting elements; simple connections; and moment resisting connections.

Highlighting the competitive nature of the business, the author delineates the statistical parameters that govern quality control in concrete construction projects, defining complicated statistical terms and the theoretical background needed for determining and meeting quality control criteria. He begins with a discussion of how to control the project to meet the owner’s requirements and includes coverage of the international codes for different loads that affect buildings. The book details traditional and emerging materials used in concrete technology such as high-strength, high-performance, and self-compacted concrete as well as those used in all construction stages for various climates. It concludes with a description of a risk-based maintenance plan for reinforced concrete structures. A guidebook and handbook, this resource provides the information required for decision-making on structure systems, materials, construction methods, and maintenance plans. Filled with case studies, it delineates practical applications and up-to-date methods for designing and constructing buildings that are aesthetically pleasing and structurally sound.

Sing-Ping Chiew, Yan-Qing Cai ... 104 pages - Publisher: CRC Press; 1st edition (April, 2018) ... Language: English - ISBN-10: 0815384602 - ISBN-13: 978-0815384601. 

This book is the companion volume to Design Examples for High Strength Steel Reinforced Concrete Columns – A Eurocode 4 Approach. Guidance is much needed on the design of high strength steel reinforced concrete (SRC) columns beyond the remit of Eurocode 4. Given the much narrower range of permitted concrete and steel material strengths in comparison to EC2 and EC3, and the better ductility and buckling resistance of SRC columns compared to steel or reinforced concrete, there is a clear need for design beyond the guidelines. This book looks at the design of SRC columns using high strength concrete, high strength structural steel and high strength reinforcing steel materials – columns with concrete cylinder strength up to 90 N/mm2, yield strength of structural steel up to 690 N/mm2 and yield strength of reinforcing steel up to 600 N/mm2 respectively. The companion volume provides detailed worked examples on use of these high strength materials. This book is written primarily for structural engineers and designers who are familiar with basic EC4 design, and should also be useful to civil engineering undergraduate and graduate students who are studying composite steel concrete design and construction. Equations for design resistances are presented clearly so that they can be easily programmed into design spreadsheets for ease of use.

This book presents the design of steel structures using finite element methods (FEM) according to the current state of the art in Germany and the rest of Europe. After a short introduction on the basics of the design, this book illustrates the FEM with a focus on internal forces, displacements, critical loads and modal shapes. Next to finite element procedures for linear calculations considering the stress states of normal force, biaxial bending and warping torsion, non-linear calculations and the stability cases of flexural buckling, lateral torsional buckling and plate buckling are concentrated on significantly. In this context, design procedures for stability according to the standard Eurocode 3 is introduced and discussed. In addition, important fundamental issues are covered, such as the determination of cross-section properties as well as the elastic and plastic cross-section resistance. Complementary, finite element procedures for cross sections are dealt with, which will have an increasing importance in future. This book has evolved within the teaching activities of the authors in the lecture Computer-oriented Design of Steel Structures on the Master?s Program Computational Engineering at the University of Bochum. It covers the total variety of demands needed to be discussed for the safe, economic and modern design of steel structures.

 Practical guide to structural stability theory for the design of safe steel structures Not only does this book provide readers with a solid foundation in structural stability theory, it also offers them a practical, working knowledge of how this theory translates into design specifications for safe steel structures. Structural Stability of Steel features detailed discussions of the elastic and inelastic stability of steel columns, beams, beam-columns, and frames alongside numerous worked examples. For each type of structural member or system, the authors set forth recommended design rules with clear explanations of how they were derived. Following an introduction to the principles of stability theory, the book covers: * Stability of axially loaded planar elastic systems * Tangent-modulus, reduced-modulus, and maximum strength theories * Elastic and inelastic stability limits of planar beam-columns * Elastic and inelastic instability of planar frames * Out-of-plane, lateral-torsional buckling of beams, columns, and beam-columns The final two chapters focus on the application of stability theory to the practical design of steel structures, with special emphasis on examples based on the 2005 Specification for Structural Steel Buildings of the American Institute of Steel Construction. Problem sets at the end of each chapter enable readers to put their newfound knowledge into practice by solving actual instability problems. With its clear logical progression from theory to design implementation, this book is an ideal textbook for upper-level undergraduates and graduate students in structural engineering. Practicing engineers should also turn to this book for expert assistance in investigating and solving a myriad of stability problems.
