Towards A New Engineering second edition Book Excerpt:

This second-expanded edition of Towards A New Engineering is almost double in volume compared to the first edition, with several new chapters, new material and is more graphically oriented in order to guide readers more smoothly throughout the text. It is a collection of intimate reflections on structural engineering, its present and future. A testimony on many issues that ‘bothered’ the author during his years of designing structures. A critique and praise of built structures, structural design strategies, codes, the educational system, digital tools and much more. It’s a professional memoir dedicated to the unsung heroes of structural engineering. Not the unknown ones but the unrecognized ones. It’s an album of their thoughts and designs. This book is a rare possibility for structural engineers to consider the meaning of their profession, to meditate about it and its relation to, or distinction from, the practice of architecture. This is a collection of thoughts but not conclusions and theories. The book is recommended for all structural and architectural engineers, as well as for students of engineering and architecture, especially those who have chosen structural engineering as their lifelong profession. It is an eye-opening book that will provide a clearer, more realistic perspective while also offering an idea of where engineers will be in the future and how they should adapt to the time that comes.

Structural Engineering Art and Approximation 2nd edition Book Excerpt:

‘It is better to be roughly right than precisely wrong.’ John Maynard Keynes This book contains approximate structural calculation methods for engineers and architects. For easy reference and assimilation it is broken down into categories from simple beams to more complex examples. With numerous figures and photographs it closely relates theory to real structures. Engineering Structures is mostly formally taught in a lecture room with little time devoted to real examples. On graduation an engineer has to cope with turning this eagerly acquired knowledge into reality. To make sense of this a designer needs to be able to test their ideas with a simple set of tools which involve little more than pen, paper and calculator. Architects often wonder if there is an easier way to evaluate alternative structural solutions in their designs. For more information see www.struartapp.com

Using the Engineering Literature Second Edition Book Excerpt:

With the encroachment of the Internet into nearly all aspects of work and life, it seems as though information is everywhere. However, there is information and then there is correct, appropriate, and timely information. While we might love being able to turn to Wikipedia® for encyclopedia-like information or search Google® for the thousands of links on a topic, engineers need the best information, information that is evaluated, up-to-date, and complete. Accurate, vetted information is necessary when building new skyscrapers or developing new prosthetics for returning military veterans While the award-winning first edition of Using the Engineering Literature used a roadmap analogy, we now need a three-dimensional analysis reflecting the complex and dynamic nature of research in the information age. Using the Engineering Literature, Second Edition provides a guide to the wide range of resources available in all fields of engineering. This second edition has been thoroughly revised and features new sections on nanotechnology as well as green engineering. The information age has greatly impacted the way engineers find information. Engineers have an effect, directly and indirectly, on almost all aspects of our lives, and it is vital that they find the right information at the right time to create better products and processes. Comprehensive and up to date, with expert chapter authors, this book fills a gap in the literature, providing critical information in a user-friendly format.
