The fourth edition of Design of Structural Elements: Concrete, Steelwork, Masonry and Timber Designs to Eurocodes 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 Eurocodes, current as of 2021.
Topics include the philosophy of design, sustainable development, basic structural concepts, and material properties. After an overview of structural design, the book contains self-contained chapters with numerous diagrams and worked examples on design in reinforced concrete, structural steelwork and steel/concrete composites, masonry and timber based on EN 1990-1997. Selected extracts from these publications assist familiarity. Elements considered cover reinforced concrete and composite floors, isolated foundation, cantilever retaining wall, load-bearing and panel walls, stud wall and connections.
The text is ideal for student civil and structural engineers on degree and diploma courses, and also practising civil and structural engineers and other built environment professions. The online Support Materials for adopting course instructors includes an extensive set of solutions to the problems in the book and PowerPoint slides for use in lectures: www.routledge.com/9781032076317.
