            This topical book contains the latest scientifi c and engineering developments in the fi eld of tubular steel structures, as presented at the 13th International Symposium on Tubular Structures (ISTS13), Hong Kong, 15 -- 17 December 2010. The International Symposium on Tubular Str...uctures (ISTS) has a longstanding reputation for being the principal showcase for manufactured tubing and the prime international forum for discussion of research, developments and applications in this fi eld. The Symposium presentations herein include one invited ISTS Kurobane Lecture together with all the technical papers. Various key and emerging subjects in the fi eld of hollow structural sections are covered, such as: special applications and case studies, static and fatigue behaviour of connections/joints, concrete-fi lled and composite tubular members and offshore structures, stainless steel and aluminium structures, earthquake and dynamic resistance, specifi cation and standard developments, material properties and structural reliability, impact resistance and brittle fracture, fi re resistance, casting and fabrication innovations. Research and development issues presented in this book are applicable to buildings, bridges, offshore structures, entertainment rides, cranes, towers and various mechanical and agricultural equipment. This book is thus a pertinent reference source for architects, civil and mechanical engineers, designers, steel fabricators and contractors, manufacturers of hollow sections or related construction products, trade associations involved with tubing, owners or developers of tubular structures, steel specification committees, academics and research students all around the world.

            Strain gages are used in all areas of engineering, and in large quantities. The present book is a comprehensive basic compendium about the application of strain gages. It serves to explain the use of strain gages as an introduction, instruction for use and reference work for all ...fields and involved parties. The application-related description derives from consideration of measurement tasks in the work of structural engineers, mechanical engineers, materials scientists and related engineering disciplines. Particular emphasis is laid on the correct planning and assessment of measurements in order to help avoid mistakes. The algorithms for the stress analysis are explained in great detail. The technology of strain gages is also described, since this knowledge helps to understand the possibilities and limitations. Remarkable results can be achieved with strain gages, but their applicability is also limited by the laws of physics. This work is an indispensable reference work for academia and research, and a detailed instruction guide for measurement installation and implementation of strain gages as well as for interpretation of the results. The book includes a number of real-life application examples, which can be considered as samples for the solution of similar tasks. (Package: Print + ePDF)

            Take a Detailed Look at the Practice of Drystone Retaining Wall Construction Drystone retaining walls make very efficient use of local materials, and sit comfortably in their environment. They make an important contribution to heritage and to the character of the landscape, and a...re loved by many people who value the skill and ingenuity that has gone into their construction, as well as simply how they look. And yet, in engineering terms, they are complex. They can deform significantly as their loading changes and their constituent stones weather. This gives them ductility-they deal with changes by adapting to them. In some ways, they behave like conventional concrete retaining walls, but in many ways they are better. They cannot be designed or assessed correctly unless these differences are understood. Implementing concepts that require no prior knowledge of civil engineering, the authors: Explain the behavior of earth retaining structures Provide a theoretical framework for modeling the mechanical stability of a drystone retaining wall Outline reliable rules for constructing a drystone retaining wall Include charts to support the preliminary sizing of drystone retaining walls Examine the relevance of drystone in terms of sustainability Describe more advanced methods of analysis Drystone Retaining Walls: Design, Construction and Assessment draws on theoretical work and full-scale practical testing to explain how these structures work, without presuming that the reader has received an engineering education. The book goes on to give enough detail to give the professional engineer confidence in the methods used in design and assessment, and insight into what matters most in the way in which drystone retaining walls are built. It shows how to design ne
