Product Description

This Text explains the importance of a knowledge of materials in structural engineering. It presents:

    Guidance on material selection for use in construction
  • Signicant structural and mechanical properties that need to be considered in structural engineering
  • Treatment of materials in current design philosophy

The application of these thought processes is necessary when specifying and using structural materials. Their use is illustrated through a short case study of the 2012 Olympic Velodrome.
