This third edition of a popular textbook is a concise single-volume introduction to the design of structural elements in concrete, steel, timber, masonry, and composites. It provides design principles and guidance in line with both British Standards and Eurocodes, current as of late 2007. Topics discussed include the philosophy of design, basic structural concepts, and material properties. After an introduction and overview of structural design, the book is conveniently divided into sections based on British Standards and Eurocodes.

SPON'S CIVIL ENGINEERING AND HIGHWAY WORKS PRICE BOOK 2011 provides a comprehensive work manual for the industry. It gives costs for both general and civil engineering works and highway works, and shows a full breakdown of labour, plant and material elements, with labour rates updated in line with the latest CIJC wage agreement. In this 24th edition, assumptions on overheads and profits and on preliminaries have been kept low, labour rates have been adjusted, manufactured goods prices are rising faster than previously predicted, steel products, structural sections and reinforcement show steady rises in price, bridge bearing prices have risen significantly. Structured to comply with CESMM3 and MMHW, the book includes prices and rates covering the key items that make a general civil or highway construction project – from compressors to contracts and damp proofing to dams. In a time when it is essential to gain 'competitive advantage' in an increasingly congested market, this price book provides instant-access cost information and is a one-stop reference containing tables, formulae, technical information and professional advice. Buyers of this 2011 edition can make a free internet download of SPON'S CIVIL ENGINEERING AND HIGHWAY WORKS price data, which will run to the end of 2011 and: produce estimate and tender documents generate priced or unpriced schedules adjust rates and data and enter rogue items export schedules into Excel carry out an index search This year, for the first time, the resources include a versatile and powerful ebook.

The second edition of this popular textbook provides, in a single volume, an introduction to the design of structural elements in concrete, steel, timber and masonry. Part One explains the principles and philosophy of design, basic techniques, and structural concepts. Designing in accordance with British Standard codes of practice follows in Part Two, with numerous diagrams and worked examples. In Part Three the Eurocodes are introduced, and their main differences to British codes are explained. Comprehensively revised and updated to comply with the latest British Standards and Eurocodes, the second edition also features a new section on the use and design of composite materials. With an accompanying solutions manual available online, Design of Structural Elements is the ideal course text for students of civil and structural engineering, on degree, HNC and HND courses.

Preface to the third edition Since publication of the second edition of Design of Structural Elements there have been two major developments in the field of structural engineering which have suggested this new edition. The first and foremost of these is that the Eurocodes for concrete, steel, masonry and timber design have now been converted to full EuroNorm (EN) status and, with the possible exception of the steel code, all the associated UK National Annexes have also been finalised and published. Therefore, these codes can now be used for structural design, although guidance on the timing and circumstances under which they must be used is still awaited. Thus, the content of Chapters 8 to 11 on, respectively, the design of concrete, steel, masonry and timber structures has been completely revised to comply with the EN versions of the Eurocodes for these materials. The opportunity has been used to expand Chapter 10 and include several worked examples on the design of masonry walls subject to either vertical or lateral loading or a combination of both. The second major development is that a number of small but significant amendments have been made to the 1997 edition of BS 8110: Part 1 on concrete design, and new editions of BS 5628: Parts 1 and 3 on masonry design have recently been published. These and other national standards, e.g. BS 5950 for steel design and BS 5268 for timber design, are still widely used in the UK and beyond. This situation is likely to persist for some years, and therefore the decision was taken to retain the chapters on British Standards and where necessary update the material to reflect latest design recommendations. This principally affects the material in Chapters 3 and 5 on concrete and masonry design. The chapters on Eurocodes are not self-contained but include reference to relevant chapters on British Standards. This should not present any problems to readers familiar with British Standards, but will mean that readers new to this subject will have to refer to two chapters from time to time to get the most from this book. This is not ideal, but should result in the reader becoming familiar with both British and European practices, which is probably necessary during the transition phase from British Standards to Eurocodes.
