Structural Analysis and Design to Prevent Disproportionate Collapse

Feng Fu
February 17, 2018

Hard Guidance on Preventing Disproportionate Collapse Disproportionate collapse is a pressing issue in current design practice. Numerous causes are possible – especially forms of extreme loading, such as blast, fire, earthquake, or vehicle collisions. But it is the mechanism and its prevention...

Design and Performance of Embankments on Very Soft Soils

Márcio de Souza S. Almeida, Maria Esther Soares Marques
February 05, 2018

Embankment construction projects on very soft soil often give rise to serious problems. This volume on geotechnics and soft soil engineering therefore treats all phases of the design and construction process exhaustively, from the first investigation step to the monitoring of constructed work. The...

Concrete in Extreme Environments

John Bull, Ziangming Zhou
January 31, 2018

Contemporary events have shown that buildings designed to modern day codes need to be able to resist accidental extreme actions such as impact, explosions, weather, chemical and seismic events. This is one of the reasons for the present reviewing of the Eurocodes used to design concrete structures....

Human Factors in Land Use Planning and Urban Design: Methods, Practical Guidance, and Applications

Nicholas J. Stevens, Paul M. Salmon, Guy H. Walker, Neville A. Stanton
January 29, 2018

This book furthers the role of human factors methods in land use planning and urban design that was recognised by Stevens and Salmon in 2014. At a simplistic level the issues found in both discipline areas are one and the same: the design of the environment brings about emergent behaviours that in...
