Design of Structural Elements

Design of Structural Elements 

Chanakya Arya

Preference :

Structural design is a key element of all degree and diploma courses in civil and structural engineering. It involves the study of principles and procedures contained in the latest codes of practice for structural design for a range of materials, including concrete, steel, masonry, and timber. Most textbooks on structural design consider only one construction material and, therefore, the student may end up buying several books on the subject. This is undesirable from the viewpoint of cost but also because it makes it difficult for the student to unify principles of structural design, because of differing presentation approaches adopted by the authors.
