Case Studies 1: The Story of Koror Bridge, by Man-Chung Tang, ISBN 978-3-85748-136-9, published in 2014. Nineteen years and a half after it was opened to traffic, the Koror Bridge in the Republic of Palau collapsed less than three months after being repaired. For a long time, it was impossible to study the facts surrounding the incident since most of the documents were sealed as a result of litigation amoung various parties.

Picture of the productUse of Timber in Tall Multi-Storey Buildings (ePDF)
Use of Timber in Tall Multi-Storey Buildings, by Ian Smith and Andrea Frangi, ISBN 978-3-85748-133-8, published in 2014. Since the dawn of civilization, timber has been a primary material for achieving great structural engineering feats. Yet during the late 19th century and most of the 20th century it lost currency as a preferred material for construction of large and tall multi-storey building superstructures. This Structural Engineering Document (SED) addresses a reawakening of interest in timber and timber-based products as primary construction materials for relatively tall, multi-storey buildings.

Picture of the productDesign for Robustness
Design for Robustness, by Franz Knoll and Thomas Vogel, ISBN 978-3-85748-120-8, published in 2009. Robustness is the ability to survive unforeseen circumstances without undue damage or loss of function. It has become a requirement expressed in modern building codes,mostly without much advice as to how it can be achieved. Engineering has developed some approaches based on traditional practice as well as recent insight. However, knowledge about robustness remains scattered and ambiguous, making it difficult to apply to many specific cases.

Picture of the productStructural Use of Glass
Structural Use of Glass, by Matthias Haldimann, Andreas Luible, Mauro Overend, ISBN 978-3-85748-119-2, published in 2008. Recent architectural trends and technological developments have brought about unprecedented opportunities and exciting changes in the use of glass in buildings. Structural engineers currently have a bewildering array of glass products and configurations to choose from and a wide range of normal and exceptional loading conditions to consider, but very few unified reference texts for undertaking these tasks. This book attempts to redress this issue by providing an overview of the recent developments in this field thereby providing a basis for the understanding of the structural performance and design of glass in buildings.

Cable Vibrations in Cable-Stayed Bridges, by Prof. Elsa de Sa Caetano, ISBN 978-3-85748-115-4, published in 2007.The fifty years of experience of construction of cable-stayed bridges since their establishment as a new category among the classical types have brought an immense progress, ranging from design and conception to materials, analysis, construction, observation and retrofitting. The growing construction of cable-stayed bridges has also triggered researchers’ and designers’ attention to the problem of cable vibrations. Intensive research has been developed all over the world during the last two decades as a consequence of the numerous cases of cable vibrations exhibited by all types of cable-stayed bridges.

Use and Application of High-Performance Steels for Steel Structures, edited by Hans-Peter Günther, ISBN3-85748-113-7, published in 2005.
New steel production processes have led to a remarkable improvement in steel products within the last few years, and now allows steels to be produced according to the desired mechanical and chemical properties. High Performance Steel (HPS) is the designation given to this new generation of steels that offer higher performance not only in terms of strength but also toughness, weldability, cold formability and corrosion resistance, compared to the traditionally used mild steel grades.

Use of Fibre Reinforced Polymers in Bridge Construction, edited by Thomas Keller, ISBN 3-85748-105-0, published in 2003.
The aim of the present Structural Engineering Document, a state-of-the-art report, is to review the progress made worldwide in the use of fibre reinforced polymers as structural components in bridges until the end of the year 2000.
Due to their advantageous material properties such as high specific strength, a large tolerance for frost and de-icing salts and, furthermore, short installation times with minimum traffic interference, fibre reinforced polymers have matured to become valuable alternative building materials for bridge structures.

Structural Bearings and Expansion Joints for Bridges, edited by Günter Ramberger, ISBN 3-85748-105-6, published in 2002.
Bridge superstructures have to be designed to permit thermal and live load strains to occur without unintended restraints. Bridge bearings have to transfer forces from the superstructure to the substructure, allowing all movements in directions defined by the designer. The two functions transfer the loads and allow movements only in the required directions for a long service time with little maintenance must be fulfilled. Different bearings for different purposes and requirements have been developed so, that the bridge designer can choose the most suitable bearing.

Picture of the productVibrations in Structures (ePDF)
Vibrations in Structures by Hugo Bachmann, Walter Ammann. ‘Vibratlon in Structures’ concentrates on vibrations caused by human motion or machine operation. Man-induced vibrations occur mostly ìn pedestrian structures, office buildings, gymnasia and sports halls, dancing and concert halls, stadia, etc. Machineinduced vìbrations occur during the operatìon of all sorts of machinery and tools with moving parts. The study concentrates on small and medium size machinery placed on floors of industrial buildings. The book ìs consciously intended to serve the practising structural engineer and not prìmarily the dynamic specialist.

Picture of the productDynamic Response of Reinforced Concrete Buildings (ePDF)
Dynamic Response of Reinforced Concrete Buildings by Hajime Umemura and Haruo Takizawa. This volume examines the literature with regard to analytical methods for modeling their dynamic failure, and is intended to provide a summary report on the current state of the art. The survey places major emphasis on formulations of a basically empirical nature. Itts necessity arises mostly from the complexities inherent in the inelastic and hysteretic response of reinforced concrete. Important aspects are first reviewed for the microscopic or simple modelling of overall behaviour. Their advantages and limitations as well as the directions of future improvement are noted by including simple illustrations. In particular, the examination emphasizes unsatisfactory state of the art for a reliable description of the out-of-plane failure of structure.

Picture of the productConcrete Box-Girder Bridges (ePDF)
Concrete Box-Girder Bridges by Jörg Schlaich and Hartmut Scheef. The box girder ìs today the most widely used superstructure in concrete bridge construction. The aim of this document is to relieve the engineer of the study of today's hardly surveyable mass of literature on the subject so that he can better devote that tìme to the design of the brìdge. Thìs document directs itself especially to the design engineer and therefore follows the sequence of a practical bridge design process: Part 1, Design, presents the most important factors influencing the architectural and structural design of box-girder bridges. Part 2, Structural analysis, follows the structural analysis in longitudinal and transverse direction, and deals, with the interaction between both, namely the folded plate action. Part 3, Dimensioning and Structural Detailing, mainly treats the analysis and dimensioning of those regions of the bridge whose stresses cannot adequately be described with the Technical Bending Theory. Structural details are presented.
