Book Description

In the field of structural design, common engineering materials that are used include concrete, lumber, and steel. The selection of the material is determined by the availability of the materials, the type of construction, and the preferences of the designer. The design techniques and the code requirements of each material are quite diverse from one another. The third edition of Principles of Structural Design: Wood, Steel, and Concrete (PDF) presents the fundamental designs of particular elements of each material, as well as the concept of constructions that are important for the design. The book also includes a glossary of terms related to structural design. There are several different examples of complete structural designs listed here. This essential reading now includes a comprehensive database that includes the properties of the materials, specifications of the parts, the qualities of the parts themselves, and design aids.

NOTE: This offering only includes the PDF version of the ebook “Principles of Structural Design: Wood, Steel, and Concrete,” which is in its third edition. There are no access codes contained within.
