Design of Structural Elements Third Edition By Chanakya Arya.
Since publication of the second edition of Design of Structural Elements there have been two major developments in the field of structural engineering which have suggested this new edition.
The first and foremost of these is that the Eurocodes for concrete, steel, masonry and timber design have now been converted to full EuroNorm (EN) status and, with the possible exception of the steel code, all the associated UK National Annexes have also been finalised and published. Therefore, these codes can now be used for structural design, although guidance on the timing and circumstances under which they must be used is still awaited.
Thus, the content of Chapters 8 to 11 on, respectively, the design of concrete, steel, masonry and timber structures has been completely revised to comply with the EN versions of the Eurocodes for these materials. The opportunity has been used to expand Chapter 10 and include several worked examples on the design of masonry walls subject to either vertical or lateral loading or a combination of both.
The second major development is that a number of small but significant amendments have been made to the 1997 edition of BS 8110: Part 1 on concrete design, and new editions of BS 5628: Parts 1 and 3 on masonry design have recently been published. These and other national standards, e.g. BS 5950 for steel design and BS 5268 for timber design, are still widely used in the UK and beyond. This situation is likely to persist for some years, and therefore the decision was taken to retain the chapters on British Standards and where necessary update the material to reflect latest design recommendations. This principally affects the material in Chapters 3 and 5 on concrete and masonry design.
The chapters on Eurocodes are not self-contained but include reference to relevant chapters on British Standards. This should not present any problems to readers familiar with British Standards, but will mean that readers new to this subject will have to refer to two chapters from time to time to get the most from this book. This is not ideal, but should result in the reader becoming familiar with both British and European practices, which is probably necessary during the transition phase from British Standards to Eurocodes.
