The up-to-date edition of the classic guide--from leading experts in structural stability theory and research First published in 1960, the Guide to Stability Design Criteria for Metal Structures is the reference of choice for civil and structural engineers seeking reliable, in-depth coverage of stability problems and research. This extensively revised Fifth Edition bridges theory and practice to offer simplified and refined procedures both for design and for the assessment of design limitations, as well as detailed guidance on design specifications, codes, and standards concerning the stability of metal structures. Written by members of Structural Stability Research Council task groups and other specialists, all material has been updated to reflect recent developments in each subject area. The Fifth Edition features eight new chapters covering the latest procedures in horizontal curved steel I-girders, composite columns and structural systems, stability of angle members, bracing, frame stability, doubly curved shells and shell-like structures, stability under seismic loading, and stability analysis by the finite element method. Complete with over 100 new illustrations, plus references, technical memoranda, and name and subject indexes, the Guide to Stability Design Criteria for Metal Structures, Fifth Edition is ready to go to work for a new generation of structural and civil engineers in their daily practice.

Das egoistische Gen

p”Ein auch heute noch bedeutsamer Klassiker“ Daily Express Sind wir Marionetten unserer Gene? Nach Richard Dawkins ́ vor über 30 Jahren entworfener und heute noch immer provozierender These steuern und dirigieren unsere von Generation zu Generation weitergegebenen Gene uns, um sich selbst zu erhalten. Alle biologischen Organismen dienen somit vor allem dem Überleben und der Unsterblichkeit der Erbanlagen und sind letztlich nur die "Einweg-Behälter" der "egoistischen" Gene. Sind wir Menschen also unserem Gen-Schicksal hilflos ausgeliefert? Dawkins bestreitet dies und macht uns Hoffnung: Seiner Meinung nach sind wir nämlich die einzige Spezies mit der Chance, gegen ihr genetisches Schicksal anzukämpfen.

Elements of Earthquake Engineering and Structural Dynamics

Author: André Filiatrault

Publisher: Presses inter Polytechnique

ISBN: 2553016492

Category: Conception parasismique

Page: 854

View: 4494

"In order to reduce the seismic risk facing many densely populated regions worldwide, including Canada and the United States, modern earthquake engineering should be more widely applied. But current literature on earthquake engineering may be difficult to grasp for structural engineers who are untrained in seismic design. In addition no single resource addressed seismic design practices in both Canada and the United States until now. Elements of Earthquake Engineering and Structural Dynamics was written to fill the gap. It presents the key elements of earthquake engineering and structural dynamics at an introductory level and gives readers the basic knowledge they need to apply the seismic provisions contained in Canadian and American building codes."--Résumé de l'éditeur.
