A structural design book with a code-connected focus, Principles of Structural Design: Wood, Steel, and Concrete, Second Edition introduces the principles and practices of structural design. This book covers the section properties, design values, reference tables, and other design aids required to accomplish complete structural designs in accordance with the codes. What’s New in This Edition: Reflects all the latest revised codes and standards The text material has been thoroughly reviewed and expanded, including a new chapter on concrete design Suitable for combined design coursework in wood, steel, and concrete Includes all essential material—the section properties, design values, reference tables, and other design aids required to accomplish complete structural designs according to the codes This book uses the LRFD basis of design for all structures This updated edition has been expanded into 17 chapters and is divided into four parts. The first section of the book explains load and resistance factor design, and explores a unified approach to design. The second section covers wood design and specifically examines wood structures. It highlights sawn lumber, glued laminated timber, and structural composite/veneer lumber. The third section examines steel structures. It addresses the AISC 2010 revisions to the sectional properties of certain structural elements, as well as changes in the procedure to design the slip-critical connection. The final section includes a chapter on T beams and introduces doubly reinforced beams. Principles of Structural Design: Wood, Steel, and Concrete, Second Edition was designed to be used for joint coursework in wood, steel, and concrete design.

FOREWORD This second edition of HVAC Design Manual for Hospitals and Clinics adds updated information, provides in-depth design recommendations based on best practices, and presents proven, cost-effective, and reliable solutions that result in low maintenance cost and high reliability. Our intent is that this edition of the manual focuses specifically on heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) system design for health care facilities, omitting general system descriptions that are readily available in other ASHRAE publications. Instead, our focus has been to present “what’s different” about health care HVAC. Although not a consensus document, this manual draws heavily on ANSI/ASHRAE/ASHE Standard 170-2008, Ventilation of Health Care Facilities, which is. Citations of the standard throughout this book should be understood to include its Addenda a to t and v. This edition is the result of a concerted effort by a fine group of volunteers whose job was made immensely easier by having the first edition to build upon. By intent, the authoring committee was composed primarily of consulting engineers with long experience in the design and construction of health care facilities. Jeff Hardin and John Kramer worked hard on both editions. Hospital engineers John Kramer, Heather Platt, and Ron Westbrook also wrote chapters and provided invaluable input to the entire book. Engineering editorial assistance was provided by John Murphy, and Walter Grondzik was technical editor. Kelly Short and Kelsey Grondzik assisted with tables and illustrations. The intended audience for this manual includes • consulting engineers; • experienced hospital designers who will use it as a reference; • mechanical engineers who wish to become familiar with health care design; • young engineers who seek a career specializing in health care HVAC design; • facility managers; • infection control personnel; • managers of planning and design; • maintenance staff; • contractors; • developers; and • code, accreditation, and licensure officials. Finally, I want to thank Layle Thomas for her fantastic organizational and editorial expertise, which was invaluable in coordinating the efforts of over 32 volunteers. It has been my honor to chair this committee. Dan Koenigshofer, PE, M Public Health, HFDP, SASHE Dewberry Engineers January 2013

"In order to reduce the seismic risk facing many densely populated regions worldwide, including Canada and the United States, modern earthquake engineering should be more widely applied. But current literature on earthquake engineering may be difficult to grasp for structural engineers who are untrained in seismic design. In addition no single resource addressed seismic design practices in both Canada and the United States until now. Elements of Earthquake Engineering and Structural Dynamics was written to fill the gap. It presents the key elements of earthquake engineering and structural dynamics at an introductory level and gives readers the basic knowledge they need to apply the seismic provisions contained in Canadian and American building codes."--Résumé de l'éditeur.
