Description

Functions as a Day-to-Day Resource for Practicing Engineers...





The hugely useful Structural Engineer's Pocket Book is now overhauled and revised in line with the Eurocodes. It forms a comprehensive pocket reference guide for professional and student structural engineers, especially those taking the IStructE Part 3 exam. With stripped-down basic material-tables, data, facts, formulae, and rules of thumb-it is directly usable for scheme design by structural engineers in the office, in transit, or on site.





...And a Core Reference for Students





It brings together data from many different sources, and delivers a compact source of job-simplifying and time-saving information at an affordable price. It acts as a reliable first point of reference for information that is needed on a daily basis.





This third edition is referenced throughout to the structural Eurocodes. After giving general information and details on actions on structures, it runs through reinforced concrete, steel, timber, and masonry.







Provides essential data on steel, concrete, masonry, timber, and other main materials
Pulls together material from a variety of sources for everyday work
Serves as a first point of reference for structural and civil engineers





A core structural engineering book, Structural Engineer's Pocket Book: Eurocodes, Third Edition benefits both students and industry professionals.

Review quote

" ... this excellent little book should remain an important first reference tool for practising engineers and students alike."
-Civil Engineering Journal, October 2015


"All in all, the reviewer would wholeheartedly like to commend this concise and yet informative pocket book as an essential reference for all current practitioners as well as for the next generation of engineers."
-ICE Proceedings-Structures-Buildings Journal, 2015



"The book, in its previous editions, has been an essential companion of practising engineers, as well as of students of structural design. The new edition fills a great need to provide the essential data for anyone who may be required to use Eurocodes. This applies to practising engineers as well as undergraduate and postgraduate students of structural design."
-Kuldeep S Virdi, Professor Emeritus, City University, London, UK
