Elementary Behaviour of Composite
Steel and Concrete Structural Members

In a companion book entitled 'Composite Steel and Concrete Structural Members:
Fundamental Behaviour m', the authors have described the fundamental behaviour of
composite members in order to give the engineer a feel for the behaviour that is
often missing when design is based solely on using codes of practice or by the direct
application of prescribed equations. This was achieved by first describing both the
basic material responses and the basic structural mechanisms, which were then used
to develop the fundamental equations or fundamental analysis procedures that
simulated mathematically the structural responses, and which was then consolidated
with a few carefully chosen worked examples.
The aim of this book on elementary behaviour is to supplement the book on
fundamental behaviour ~ in order to develop analysis skills,familiarity and an intuitive
feel for composite construction that is required by students and practising engineers.
A topic is first described very briefly and not comprehensively. Numerous examples
are then worked and used to give an in-depth illustration of a technique, point or
concept. The worked examples are therefore part of the main text, and it is necessary
for the reader to work through all of them to gain a full understanding. In contrast,
an engineer can obtain an in depth knowledge of the development of the techniques
from the companion book on fundamental behaviour ~, which also contains more
advanced analysis techniques. Both books are self-contained.

This book on elementary behaviour describes the analysis techniques required
for standard forms of composite steel and concrete structures, and in particular the
analysis techniques required for non-standard forms of construction that are not or
rarely covered in national standards. In fact, most of the analysis techniques described
in this book are not covered by national standards. The analysis procedure is described
firstly in general terms, this is then followed by detailed worked examples in which
the technique is applied in the assessing and upgrading of existing structures or in
the designing of new structures. The subject may therefore be of interest to practising
engineers, particularly if they are involved in the design or assessment of non-standard
or unusual composite structures for buildings and bridges, or are involved in the
upgrading or strengthening of existing composite structures. However, this book
has been written specifically for teaching elementary analysis skills to undergraduate
students. Factors of safety or resistance factors are not included in the analysis
procedures, and it will be left to the designer to include his or her own national
values. However, mean and characteristics strengths are included as these are basic
properties. It is only necessm'y for the student before using this book to have grasped
fundamental concepts of mechanics such as equilibrium, compatibility, Young's
modulus and second moment of area.

Building Code Requirements 
and Specification for Masonry Structures
The 2011 edition of Building Code Requirements and Specification for Masonry Structures covers the design and construction of masonry structures. As a Standard, it is written in such form that it may be adopted by reference in a legally adopted building code. Changes to this edition include a recalibration of allowable stresses, the addition of provisions for infill masonry, and a refinement of the quality assurance/special inspection provisions for masonry that includes references to relevant requirements for each inspection task. Topics include: definitions, contract documents, quality assurance, materials, placement of embedded items, analysis and design, strength and serviceability, flexural and axial loads, shear, details and development of reinforcement, walls, columns, pilasters, beams and lintels, seismic design requirements, glass unit masonry, and veneers. An empirical design method applicable to buildings meeting specific location and construction criteria are also included. This Standard is an essential reference for structural engineers, contractors, and inspection officials working on masonry structures

Manual for the Geotechnical
Design of Structures to Eurocode 7


This Manual forms part of a suite of Eurocode Manuals prepared by the
Institution of Structural Engineers. This Manual has been specifically prepared
with the following aims:
– To provide guidance to structural engineers on geotechnical design for
common forms of construction for UK buildings to BS EN 1997-1:20041
and BS EN 1997-2:20072 and their UK National Annexes. The term
‘buildings’ includes basements and retaining walls. Introductory comments
on specialist geotechnical techniques which may be associated with
building design and construction are provided.
– To promote interaction and understanding between structural and
geotechnical engineers.

This Manual is primarily addressed to those carrying out calculations by hand
or using standard geotechnical software. It does not address situations where
specialist geotechnical knowledge would be required for more complex
design and construction procedures. It relates only to the design of buildings

to be constructed in the United Kingdom.

Structural Design of Buildings


The intention of this publication is to embark on a journey taking the reader through a
brief history of buildings, how the construction of buildings has evolved over the years
and then examining in more detail the structure of buildings and their principal elements.
We also examine other factors which affect the stability and structure of buildings,
including ground investigations and environmental factors, and detail the materials used
in their construction. Finally, we examine structural failures of buildings, their likely
causes and common remedies.
This book explains some of the structural engineering principles in the design of residential
dwellings and their various structural elements. Some structural theory has been
included to demonstrate and reinforce understanding of the comments made. In addition,
structural calculations have been included to demonstrate the key points. Diagrams
and photographs add clarity.

The theoretical concepts contained in this book are equally applicable to all building
structures, whether commercial, traditional or modern. To emphasise some of the issues
raised, large examples such as castles and churches are used, which clearly demonstrate
the building science and technology.
Itmust be understood from the onset that specialist structural advice should be sought
before undertaking any alterations, or in the identification of structural failures and
defects. This book attempts to provide some guidance on understanding the behaviour
and construction of buildings, but should not be taken as an exhaustive text.
