  • Description
  • Contents

This book is aimed at developing the elementary analysis skills, familiarity and intuitive feel for composite construction that is required by undergraduate and graduate students, and by structural engineers. It does not require a prior knowledge of advanced analysis and design techniques, but builds on simple concepts such as statics and the mechanics of materials. A topic is first introduced by a brief description, with numerous carefully-chosen examples forming an integral part of the main text. Working through the examples allows the reader to gain a full understanding of the subject, as a technique is illustrated by its application to the design of new structures, or the important area of assessing and upgrading existing structures.

The techniques described for the analysis of standard structures form a basis for understanding the way composite structures work, and these techniques are applied to many non-standard forms of composite construction that are rarely covered in national standards, if at all. The book is an essential purchase for all undergraduate and postgraduate students of structural and civil engineering, as well as all practitioners.
