    DescriptionAn Introduction to Design for Civil Engineers is a concise book that provides the reader with the necessary background on terminology used in design. With this book as a guide, entry-level students of civil engineering will better understand from the outset lectures on detailed subject areas. Drawing on a wealth of experience, the authors present a largely qualitative treatment of the subject matter with little mathematics. Descriptions are amplified with numerous illustrations. This book will be a useful aid for entry-level students of civil engineering and related disciplines such as structural engineering, building engineering and architecture. It will also prove beneficial for newly qualified professionals and others who want a concise guide to everyday design technology.

    Author Information
    Andrew Beeby is Professor of Structural Design at the University of Leeds. Before joining the department he was Director of Design and Construction for the British Cement Association. Involved in drafting codes of practice for structural design, both in UK and within Europe and using knowledge to improve design methods, he now uses his expertise to explain the complexities of structural behaviour to his students. Professor Narayanan is Director at Cadogan Tietz and Visiting Professor on "Principles of Design" at the University of Leeds. Closely involved in day to day design problems and in giving expert evidence in building litigation, his wide experience makes him well equiped to write for young engineers.
