This edition has been fully revised and extended to cover blockwork and Eurocode 6 on masonry structures. This valued textbook: discusses all aspects of design of masonry structures in plain and reinforced masonry summarizes materials properties and structural principles as well as descibing structure and content of codes presents design procedures, illustrated by numerical examples includes considerations of accidental damage and provision for movement in masonary buildings. This thorough introduction to design of brick and block structures is the first book for students and practising engineers to provide an introduction to design by EC6.
This book focuses on the seismic design of building structures and their foundations to Eurocode 8. It covers the principles of seismic design in a clear but brief manner and then links these concepts to the provisions of Eurocode 8. It addresses the fundamental concepts related to seismic hazard, ground motion models, basic dynamics, seismic analysis, siting considerations, structural layout, and design philosophies, then leads to the specifics of Eurocode 8. Code procedures are applied with the aid of walk-through design examples which, where possible, deal with a common case study in most chapters. As well as an update throughout, this second edition incorporates three new and topical chapters dedicated to specific seismic design aspects of timber buildings and masonry structures, as well as base-isolation and supplemental damping. There is renewed interest in the use of sustainable timber buildings, and masonry structures still represent a popular choice in many areas. Moreover, seismic isolation and supplemental damping can offer low-damage solutions which are being increasingly considered in practice. The book stems primarily from practical short courses on seismic design which have been run over a number of years and through the development Eurocode 8. The contributors to this book are either specialist academics with significant consulting experience in seismic design, or leading practitioners who are actively engaged in large projects in seismic areas. This experience has provided significant insight into important areas in which guidance is required.
A complete, accessible introduction to structural masonry fundamentals. This practical volume provides a thorough grounding in the design of masonry structures for buildings --with clear and easy-to-grasp coverage of basic materials, construction systems, building codes, industry standards, and simple computations for structural elements of commonly used forms of masonry. Well-written and carefully organized, the book: * Includes all principal types of masonry materials: brick, stone, fired clay, concrete block, glass block, and more * Contains information on unreinforced, reinforced, and veneered construction * Examines key design criteria: dead loads, live loads, lateral loads, structural planning, building code requirements, and performance measurement * Features helpful study aids --including exercises and solutions, glossary of terms, bibliography, and detailed appendices. Requiring only minimal prior experience in engineering analysis or design, Simplified Design of Masonry Structures is ideal for self-study or classroom use. It is an essential reference for architecture and engineering students and professionals.
This manual for civil and structural engineers aims to simplify as much as possible a complex subject which is often treated too theoretically, by explaining in a practical way how to provide uncomplicated, buildable and economical foundations. It explains simply, clearly and with numerous worked examples how economic foundation design is achieved. It deals with both straightforward and difficult sites, following the process through site investigation, foundation selection and, finally, design. The book: includes chapters on many aspects of foundation engineering that most other books avoid including filled and contaminated sites mining and other man-made conditions features a step-by-step procedure for the design of lightweight and flexible rafts, to fill the gap in guidance in this much neglected, yet extremely economical foundation solution concentrates on foundations for building structures rather than the larger civil engineering foundations includes many innovative and economic solutions developed and used by the authors’ practice but not often covered in other publications provides an extensive series of appendices as a valuable reference source. For the Second Edition the chapter on contaminated and derelict sites has been updated to take account of the latest guidelines on the subject, including BS 10175. Elsewhere, throughout the book, references have been updated to take account of the latest technical publications and relevant British Standards.
