Structural Building Design: Wind and Flood Loads

1st Edition

Syed Mehdi Ashraf
October 17, 2018

This book will cover the latest methods for the structural design to mitigate potential damage due to high-speed winds, storm surges, tornadoes, and inland flooding (all of which could be brought on by hurricane conditions). It will provide detailed explanations of the new ASCE 7-16 standard (to be...

Successful Building Using Ecodesign

1st Edition

Christophe Gobin
October 10, 2018

The notion of ecodesign has now clearly become part of the building sector. It involves taking into consideration environmental issues that are indispensible in constructing our living environment. However, this method, which is industrial in origin, clearly shows that buildings are not the result...

Concrete Buildings in Seismic Regions, Second Edition

2nd Edition

George G. Penelis, Gregory G. Penelis
October 04, 2018

Reinforced concrete (R/C) is one of the main building materials used worldwide, and an understanding of its structural performance under gravity and seismic loads, albeit complex, is crucial for the design of cost effective and safe buildings. Concrete Buildings in Seismic Regions comprehensively...

Assessment, Evaluation, and Repair of Concrete, Steel, and Offshore Structures

1st Edition

Mohamed Abdallah El-Reedy
October 01, 2018

Due to age and increased loading on buildings, structural assessment and repair is routinely required with accuracy and professionalism. Our target is to have a building durable along its life time. The typical causes of structural failure and their mechanisms will be presented in this book...

Finite Element Analysis

1st Edition

Lakshmi Narasaiha
September 30, 2018

The finite element method has undergone a major paradigm shift from a detailed mathematical background for writing tailor-made computer programs to a user-based approach for applying available software to engineering analysis and design scenarios. This textbook begins with a concise overview of...

Ageing of Infrastructure: A Life-Cycle Approach

1st Edition

Frank Collins, Frédéric Blin
September 20, 2018

The book addresses the problem of ageing infrastructure and how ageing can reduce the service life below expected levels. The rate of ageing is affected by the type of construction material, environmental exposure, function of the infrastructure, and loading: each of these factors is considered in...

Multiscale Theory of Composites and Random Media

1st Edition

Xi Frank Xu
September 20, 2018

This is the first book to introduce Green-function-based multiscale theory and the corresponding finite element method, which are readily applicable to composites and random media. The methodology is considered to be the one that most effectively tackles the uncertainty of stress propagation in...
