There are numerous books and monographs on engineering structures selectively aimed at undergraduate students, graduate students or design engineers. Here we present, in a single volume, the material needed by civil engineering students as well as by practicing engineers engaged in the design of civil engineering structures. To this end, first we cover the fundamental principles of mechanics required for understanding the responses of civil engineering structures to different types of loads. Second, we provide the analytical and empirical tools employed during the design process.

  • The most valuable contents to the reader are the mechanics of relevant structural elements (including columns, beams, frames, plates and shells), the use of mechanical models in assessing the applicability of design codes, and the 95 example problems
