Structural Depth Reference Manual for the Civil PE Exam

Structural Depth Reference Manual for the Civil PE Exam

The structural depth section of the civil PE exam
requires detailed understanding of engineering codes
and their application. My goal in writing this book
has been to provide a guide to the relevant codes, and
to demonstrate their use in calculations for structures
as necessary to help you pass the civil PE exam.
Different from the previous editions, this third edition

has been revised and expanded to reflect the most cur-
rent NCEES design standards. (For a complete list of

updated codes, see References and Codes Used to Pre-
pare This Book.) Nomenclature, equations, examples,

and practice problems have been checked and updated
so that they are congruent with current codes. New text
has also been added to sections previously dependent on
older editions of exam-referenced codes.

This book addresses the structural depth section of the
civil PE examination administered by the National
Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying

(NCEES). The civil PE examination provides the qua-
lifying test for candidates seeking registration as civil

engineers. The structural section of the examination is
intended to assess the candidate’s depth of knowledge of
structural design principles and practice. The problems
in the examination are intended to be representative of
the process of designing portions of real structures.
This book is written with the exam in mind. The

national codes are referenced, and the appropriate sec-
tions of the codes are explained and analyzed in concise

and simple manners. Illustrative examples are also pre-
sented. Each example focuses on one specific code issue.

This book provides a comprehensive guide and reference
for self-study of the subject, and it supplies a rapid and
concise solution technique for any particular problem

type. In addition to providing clarification and inter-
pretation of the applicable sections of the codes, exten-
sive reference publications are cited to reflect current

design procedures.
