Structural Engineer’s Pocket Book

Written by: Fiona Cobb

The Structural Engineer’s Pocket Book is the only compilation of all tables, data, facts and formulae needed for scheme design by structural engineers in a handy-sized format. Bringing together data from many sources into a compact, affordable pocketbook, it saves valuable time spent tracking down information needed regularly.

Now in its third edition, the Structural Engineer’s Pocket Book remains a comprehensive pocket reference guide for professional and student structural engineers, particularly those taking the IStructE Part 3 exam.

The combination of tables, data, facts, formulae, and rules of thumb make it an invaluable aid in scheme design for structural engineers in the office, in transit or on site. By bringing together data from many different sources, this pocket book is a compact source of job-simplifying information at an affordable price. It acts as a reliable first point of reference and saves valuable time otherwise spent trying to track down information that is needed on a daily basis.

Concise and precise, this third edition is updated to reflect the industry changeover to the Eurocodes which are used and referenced throughout. Chapters cover all the main structural materials as well as providing basic design data and information on environmental sustainability.

The Eurocodes use considerable notation and symbols. The front and back covers include fold-out leaves which summarise the most commonly used symbols for easy reference alongside the main text. This, heavily revised, third edition is not “yet another guide to the Eurocodes.” It is intended as a day-to-day reference and hopes to satisfy a number of different groups of engineers in the transition from British Standards to Eurocodes.
