Practicing engineers designing civil engineering structures, and advanced students of civil engineering, require foundational knowledge?and advanced analytical and empirical tools.?Mechanics in Civil Engineering Structures?presents?the material?needed by practicing engineers engaged in the design of civil engineering structures, and students of civil engineering. The book covers the fundamental principles of mechanics needed to understand the responses of structures to different types of?load and?provides the analytical and empirical tools for design. The title presents the mechanics of relevant structural elements-including columns, beams, frames, plates and shells-and?the?use?of mechanical models for assessing design code application.?Eleven?chapters cover topics including stresses and strains; elastic beams and columns; inelastic and composite beams and columns; temperature and other kinematic loads; energy principles; stability and second-order effects for beams and columns;?basics of?vibration;?indeterminate?elastic-plastic structures; plates and shells.?This?book?is an invaluable guide for?civil?engineers?needing?foundational?background and advanced?analytical and empirical tools?for structural design.?
