Principles of Structural Design Summary

Principles of Structural Design: Wood, Steel, and Concrete, Third Edition by Ram S. Gupta (Roger Williams University, Bristol, Rhode Island, USA)

Timber, steel, and concrete are common engineering materials used in structural design. Material choice depends upon the type of structure, availability of material, and the preference of the designer. The design practices the code requirements of each material are very different. In this updated edition, the elemental designs of individual components of each material are presented, together with theory of structures essential for the design. Numerous examples of complete structural designs have been included. A comprehensive database comprising materials properties, section properties, specifications, and design aids, has been included to make this essential reading.
