Описание: Tensile surface structures are the visual expression of an intensive examination of the topic of building envelopes in architecture. Advances in design methods, materials, construction elements and assembly and erection planning within the field of lightweight building construction are enabling ever more exacting applications of tensile structures with spatial and structural functions, especially in roofing large column-free areas. However, the particular mechanical characteristics of the materials used raise the question of "buildability". This book provides answers by discussing the fundamental influence of manufacture and assembly when deciding on the most suitable type of structure and its detailing in the design process. The fundamentals of material composition, manufacturing process, patterning and the behaviour of flexible structural systems are explained here, as well as their use as structural and connection elements, while special attention is given to the erection of wide-span lightweight structures. The erection equipment is described, as well as the lifting and tensioning process and the construction methods used to erect the characteristic types of tensile structures, illustrated with a selection of example projects.

Описание: This volume covers the fundamentals of practical structural engineering and structural steel design and moves on to look more closely at a number of different types of built structures and their design in useful practical detail.
Описание: Volume 3 of this Handbook deals with foundations. It presents spread foundations starting with basic designs right up the necessary proofs. The section on pile foundations covers possible types of piles and their design, together with their load--bearing capacity, suitability, sample loads and testing. A further chapter explains the use, manufacture and calculation of caissons, illustrated by real--life examples. There is comprehensive coverage of the possibilities for stabilising excavations, together with the relevant area of application, while another section is devoted to the useful application of trench walls. Shore protection is treated in a special contribution covering sheet pile walls, while all types of slope protection and retainments are described in detail with excellent illustrations. Two further contributions are devoted to the special topics of machine foundations and foundations in subsidence regions. The entire book is an indispensable aid in the planning and execution of all types of foundations found in practice, whether for academics or practitioners.

Описание: The objective of this book is to fill some of the gaps in the existing engineering codes and standards related to soil dynamics, concerning issues in earthquake engineering and ground vibrations, by using formulas and hand calculators. The usefulness and accuracy of the simple analyses are demonstrated by their implementation to the case histories available in the literature. Ideally, the users of the volume will be able to comment on the analyses as well as provide more case histories of simple considerations by publishing their results in a number of international journals and conferences. The ultimate aim is to extend the existing codes and standards by adding new widely accepted analyses in engineering practice. The following topics have been considered in this volume: • main ground motion sources and properties • typical ground motions, recording, ground investigations and testing• soil properties used in simple analyses • fast sliding in non-liquefied soil• flow of liquefied sandy soil• massive retaining walls• slender retaining walls• shallow foundations• piled foundations• tunnels, vertical shafts and pipelines• ground vibration caused by industry.Audience:This book is of interest to geotechnical engineers, engineering geologists, earthquake engineers and students
Описание: In this book a detailed and systematic treatment of asymptotic methods in the theory of plates and shells is presented. The main features of the book are the basic principles of asymptotics and their applications, traditional approaches such as regular and singular perturbations, as well as new approaches such as the composite equations approach. The book introduces the reader to the field of asymptotic simplification of the problems of the theory of plates and shells and will be useful as a handbook of methods of asymptotic integration. Providing a state-of-the-art review of asymptotic applications, this book will be useful as an introduction to the field for novices as well as a reference book for specialists.
