Reinforced Concrete Design: To Eurocode

Reinforced Concrete Design: To Eurocode 

W. H. Mosley

Preference :

The purpose of this book is to provide a straightforward introduction to the principles and methods of design for concrete structures. It is directed primarily at students and young engineers who require an understanding of the basic theory and a concise guide to designing procedures. Although the detailed design methods are generally according to European Standards (Eurocodes), much of the theory and practice is of a fundamental nature and should, therefore, be useful to engineers in countries outside Europe. The search for harmonization of Technical Standards across the European Community (EC) has led to the development of a series of these Structural Eurocodes which are the technical documents intended for adoption throughout all the member states. The use of these common standards is intended to lower trade barriers and enable companies to compete on a more equitable basis throughout the EC.

  • Introduction to design and properties of reinforced concrete
  • Limit state design
  • Analysis of the structure at the ultimate limit state

Structural Stability Theory and Practice: Buckling of Columns, Beams, Plates, and Shells

Structural Stability Theory and Practice 

Sukhvarsh Jerath

Preference :

The material in this book covers the failure of structures due to buckling and structural instability. The book represents an effort to comprehensively describe the principles and theory of structural stability of different types of structures. The failures due to structural instability depend on the structural geometry, size, and stiffness. It is important to understand structural instability failures because using higher-strength materials will not prevent these failures. More structures are failing due to instability because of the increased use of high strength materials and larger structures, such as long bridges, tall buildings, vast sports, and public arenas, large storage tanks, bigger airplanes, larger engines, turbines, motors, etc. The enlarged size increases the slenderness of the members of a structure, such that these members reach their stability limit before their material strength. If one looks at the design procedures of different codes, it becomes clear that in many situations the maximum forces members can support is governed by structural instability.




Content :
  • STRUCTURAL STABILITY
  • COLUMNS
  • INELASTIC AND METAL COLUMNS
  • BEAM COLUMNS
  • FRAMES
  • TORSIONAL BUCKLING AND LATERAL BUCKLING OF BEAMS
  • INTRODUCTION
  • BUCKLING OF SHELLS

Artificial Intelligence Basics.  

Tom Taulli

Preference :

This book takes a real-world view of technology. A big advantage I have as a writer for Forbes.com and an advisor in the tech world is that I get to talk to many talented people in the AI field—and this helps me to identify what is really important in the industry. I also get to learn about case studies and examples of what works. This book is organized in a way to cover the main topics in AI—and you do not have to read each chapter in order. Artificial Intelligence Basics is meant to be a handbook.
