♥ Book Title : Free-Standing Tension Structures
☯ Full Synopsis : "Architects are constantly looking for new methods to create large indoor spaces unhindered by columns and other supports. Tensile and cable-strut structures are one method of producing such spaces. They also enable the creation of different shaped spaces allowing architects more scope for innovation. Free-standing Tension Structures: From Tensegrity Systems to Cable-strut Systems provides the background engineering needed to produce these wonderful structures. Providing a complete background to the underlying structural engineering theories of tensegrity, this book will prove invaluable for all architects and engineers working on tensile structures."Article| Binbing Wang| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : DESIGN OF CONCRETE STRUCTURES
☯ Full Synopsis : "This text primarily analyses different methods of design of concrete structures as per IS 456: 2000 (Plain and Reinforced Concrete—Indian Standard Code of Practice, 4th revision, Bureau of Indian Standards). It gives greater emphasis on the limit state method so as to illustrate the acceptable limits for the safety and serviceability requirements of structures. Besides dealing with yield line analysis for slabs, the book explains the working stress method and its use for designing reinforced concrete tension members, theory of redistribution of moments, and earthquake resistant design of structures. This well-structured book develops an effective understanding of the theory through numerous solved problems, presenting step-by-step calculations. The use of SP-16 (Design Aids for Reinforced Concrete to IS: 456–1978) has also been explained in solving the problems. KEY FEATURES : Instructional Objectives at the beginning of the chapter highlight important concepts. Summary at the end of the chapter to help student revise key points. Sixty-nine solved illustrative examples presenting step-by-step calculations. Chapter-end exercises to test student’s understanding of the concepts. Forty Tests to enable students to gauge their preparedness for actual exams. This comprehensive text is suitable for undergraduate students of civil engineering and architecture. It can also be useful to professional engineers."Article| J. N. BANDYOPADHYAY| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Elements of Spatial Structures
☯ Full Synopsis : "This excellent text highlights all aspects of the analysis and design of elements related to spatial structures, which have been carefully selected from existing structures. Analysing the design of elements of any full scale structure that contains facilities that have already been constructed makes good economic sense and avoids duplication in respect of research and development, the decision-making process and accurate design criteria for new constructed facilities."Article| M.

♥ Book Title : Space Structures 5
☯ Full Synopsis : "These two volumes on space Structures contain the latest work of leading engineers, architects and academics submitted for presentation at the Fifth International Conference on Space Structres. The Conference was held at the University of Surrey, Guildford, UK in August 2002. the two volumes contain a collection of more than one hundred and seventy papers, providing a wealth of up to date information on the analysis and design of space structures, ranging from skeletal towers, grids and domes through to tension and tensegrity structures."Article| G.

♥ Book Title : An Introduction to Cable Roof Structures
☯ Full Synopsis : "The second edition of this book provides structural engineers with a concise introduction to the architectural, structural and technological aspects of cable roofs, and supplies sufficient information for engineers to carry out their own designs. The improved methods for generating wind and earthquake histories have been included as the trend in modern design codes seem increasingly to require that dynamic response of other forms of non-linear structures such as guyed masts is considered at the design stage."Article| Hans Anton Buchholdt| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Widespan Roof Structures
☯ Full Synopsis : "This book presents current world thinking on the design and construction of large covered spaces. By drawing together contributions on particular design issues from internationally renowned projects directly from the designers, architects and engineers responsible for those schemes, readers are offered insights into many of the most innovative construction design projects of recent years. Technologies explored include the advances within stressed membrane roofing, atria and glass structures, with a focus on international developments. The book also addresses the problems of construction associated with these ambitious and vast projects and the attendant environmental issues and concerns that are raised with such high-profile schemes. This book is an essential addition to the literature in the field of progressive construction design and will appeal broadly to architects, engineers, environmentalists, designers and constructors."Article| Michael Barnes| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Textile Composites and Inflatable Structures
☯ Full Synopsis : "This book collects state-of-the-art research and technology for design, analysis, construction and maintenance of textile and inflatable structures. Textile composites and inflatable structures have become increasingly popular for a variety of applications in OCo among many other fieldsaOCo civil engineering, architecture and aerospace engineering. Typical examples include membrane roofs and covers, sails, inflatable buildings and pavilions, airships, inflatable furniture, airspace structures etc. The book contains 18 invited contributions written by distinguished authors who participated in the International Conference on Textile Composites and Inflated Structures held in Barcelona from June 30th to July 2nd, 2003. The meeting was one of the Thematic Conferences of the European Community on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences (ECCOMAS). The different chapters discuss recent progress and future research directions in membrane and inflatable structures built with new textile composite materials. Approximately half of the book focuses on describing innovative numerical methods for structural analysis of such structures, such as new nonlinear membrane and shell finite elements. The rest of the chapters present advances in design, construction and maintenance procedures.""Article| Eugenio Oñate| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Tensegrity Structures
☯ Full Synopsis : "To facilitate a deeper understanding of tensegrity structures, this book focuses on their two key design problems: self-equilibrium analysis and stability investigation. In particular, high symmetry properties of the structures are extensively utilized. Conditions for self-equilibrium as well as super-stability of tensegrity structures are presented in detail. An analytical method and an efficient numerical method are given for self-equilibrium analysis of tensegrity structures: the analytical method deals with symmetric structures and the numerical method guarantees super-stability. Utilizing group representation theory, the text further provides analytical super-stability conditions for the structures that are of dihedral as well as tetrahedral symmetry. This book not only serves as a reference for engineers and scientists but is also a useful source for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students. Keeping this objective in mind, the presentation of the book is self-contained and detailed, with an abundance of figures and examples."Article| Jing Yao Zhang| Statement ..."
