Product Description

A three publication package, comprising:

Stability of buildings: Parts 1 and 2: General philosophy and framed bracing - the first two parts in a four part series written primarily for graduate design engineers, particularly those embarking on scheme designs or approaching a professional review. Part 1 covers fundamental concepts of vertical stability, while Part 2 focuses on framed (triangulated) bracing. The Guide is illustrated throughout with clear structural philosophy drawings, case histories and analytical extracts. It also contains essential references for those who wish to read more widely on the subject.

Stability of buildings Part 3: Shear walls introduces structural shear walls considering their form, behaviour and construction options. Theory, analysis and modelling, and design are each considered in turn. Of these, the topic of design is intentionally broad with sub-sections for different materials including reinforced concrete, masonry, steel and timber. This Guide also recognises the real-life design challenges of modern buildings and identifies some of the common non-structural requirements of walls that impact on the structural engineer’s design decisions.

Stability of buildings Part 4: Moment frames completes the series. Here, the design concepts, thoughts and detail surrounding the moment frame as a stability element are explained and simplified. The moment frame can be a complex structural element and this Guide seeks to cover the diverse range of single- and multi-frame types, by drawing on particular situations faced by designers and constructors, and by advising on best practice in terms of analysis; to ensure all aspects are considered and modelled correctly.
