Student's Guide to Structural Design

Student's Guide to Structural Design

by S.A.Lavan (Author), B . G . Fletcher (Author)


This replaces the well-known third edition of Morgan's Students Structural Handbook and presents a step-by-step guide to the basic procedures of design of the most commonly used structural elements, including beams, slabs and columns, as well as retaining walls. It has been written in terms of limit state design, and deals with the use of reinforced and prestressed concrete, structural steelwork and structural timber (all of which have been the subject of recent major revisions to BSI design codes) plus load-bearing brickwork and blockwork. The book is aimed at all BTEC HC level III, IV, V students of structural design, undergraduate students of architecture and building, and first and second year undergraduate students of civil and structural engineering. It should also be an invaluable reference for practising engineers, architects and technicians.
