Comprehensive coverage of the background and design requirements for plastic and seismic design of steel structures Thoroughly revised throughout, Ductile Design of Steel Structures, Second Edition, reflects the latest plastic and seismic design provisions and standards from the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) and the Canadian Standard Association (CSA). The book covers steel material, cross-section, component, and system response for applications in plastic and seismic design, and provides practical guidance on how to incorporate these principles into structural design. Three new chapters address buckling-restrained braced frame design, steel plate shear wall design, and hysteretic energy dissipating systems and design strategies. Eight other chapters have been extensively revised and expanded, including a chapter presenting the basic seismic design philosophy to determine seismic loads. Self-study problems at the end of each chapter help reinforce the concepts presented. Written by experts in earthquake-resistant design who are active in the development of seismic guidelines, this is an invaluable resource for students and professionals involved in earthquake engineering or other areas related to the analysis and design of steel structures. COVERAGE INCLUDES: Structural steel properties Plastic behavior at the cross-section level Concepts, methods, and applications of plastic analysis Building code seismic design philosophy Design of moment-resisting frames Design of concentrically braced frames Design of eccentrically braced frames Design of steel energy dissipating systems Stability and rotation capacity of steel beams

Earthquake Resistant Design For Engineers and Architects Second Edition David J. Dowrick This is the second edition of a book which has proved useful to large numbers of engineers and architects since it was first published. The author's aim is to present the subject of earthquake resistant design from the standpoint of a designer wishing to gain an overall view of the entire process, from the nature of loading through to the details of construction. The procedures used in practice are explained in relation to their theoretical basis, and extensive references are given so that readers can follow this up further if they wish. This second edition reflects the progress made since the original publication of the book in 1977. There has been substantial revision and enlargement, particularly in the treatment of seismotechnics, hazard analysis, design earthquakes, design philosophy, base isolation and geotechnical engineering. Like the first edition, this volume is international in outlook, with examples taken from throughout the world. The book is distinguished by the unified approach the author has brought to a large and often disparate field, and this makes it invaluable to all engineers, architects, and seismologists working in earthquake resistant design, whether they be practitioners, researchers or students. Contents Foreword Preface to the First Edition Preface to the Second Edition Introduction * Seismic risk -- the causes, strength, and effects of earthquakes * Seismic activity in a regional setting * Determination of site characteristics * Design earthquakes * Earthquake resistant design philosophy -- choice of form and materials * Seismic response of soils and structures * Concrete structures * Masonry structures * Steel structures * Timber structures * Earthquake resistance of services and equipment * Architectural detailing for earthquake resistance Appendix A Earthquake resistance of specific structures Appendix B Miscellaneous information Index

The bridge engineering industry creates an ever-increasing variation of challenges. This landmark publication brings together all topics which are of interest to bridge engineers around the world in one comprehensive manual, and will quickly establish itself as an invaluable reference work. It not only provides a broad overview of the whole subject of bridge engineering, but also focuses on some of the detailed aspects of analysis, design, construction and maintenance. The Manual of Bridge Engineering will be a definitive text for practising civil and structural engineers in consulting firms and government agencies, bridge contractors, research institutes, universities and colleges - in short, all engineers involved in any aspect of the design, construction and repair, maintenance and refurbishment of bridges. Further details The manual begins with a chapter introducing readers to all of the bridge types encountered in bridge construction, from the simplest beam, through arches, to the more complex cable stayed and suspension bridges, and describes their behaviour in a qualitative manner. The second chapter is devoted to the loads which have to be sustained by bridge structures, and in particular looks at traffic load specifications around the world. It covers the brief history of loading specifications, looks in detail at some current code specifications and makes reference to loads due to wind, temperature, shrinkage and construction. This chapter also introduces the reader to the concepts of load distribution and explains the use of influence lines in bridge design. The middle section of the manual deals with the analysis, design and the construction of the more commonly known bridge types. It discusses the analysis tools normally employed and explains the general design concepts - both globally and locally. Finally, for each particular bridge type, the modern methods of construction are explained. These chapters cover a vast area of work, and provide enough information for the understanding of the design process of many different kinds of bridges. The manual then deals with modern developments in the construction of bridges and the consideration of aluminium, fibre composites, bridge enclosures and intelligent structures. There are also chapters dealing with expansion joints, bearings, parapets, drainage, waterproofing, and substructures. The final chapters cover in some detail those topics akin to bridge management. These are vital for a full appreciation of bridge engineering, and give guidance on what is to be considered once the bridge has been commissioned. The subjects covered include protection of both concrete and steel (also with reference to scour protection), project planning, management systems and strategies, inspection, monitoring, assessment and repair and strengthening.

Prepared by the Task Committee on Seismic Evaluation and Design of the Petrochemical Committee of the Energy Division of ASCE. This report offers practical recommendations regarding the design and safety of petrochemical facilities during and following an earthquake. For new facilities, the recommendations focus on interpreting of the intent of building codes as applied to petrochemical facilities; the report also gives practical guidance on design details and considerations that are not included in building codes. For existing facilities, the guidelines offerØevaluation methodologies that rely heavily on experience from past earthquakes, coupled with focused analyses.Ø These guidelines will be valuable to structural design engineers, local building authorities, and operating personnel responsible for establishing seismic design and construction standards.
