About this item
This valuable guide provides basic information for steel, concrete and geotechnical design in accordance with Australian and other relevant international standards. Detailed design items are also given, especially relevant to the mining and oil and gas industries. Examples include machine foundations, pipe racks, and bund design.
Steel design theory is presented with information on fabrication, transportation and cost, along with member, connection and anchor design. Concrete design includes information on construction costs as well as detailed calculations ranging from a simple beam design to the manual production of circular column interaction diagrams. For geotechnics, simple guidance is given on the manual production of calculations for items such as pad footings, piles, retaining walls and slabs. Each chapter also includes recommended drafting details to aid in the creation of design drawings.
More generally, highly useful aids for design engineers include section calculations and force diagrams. Capacity tables cover real-world items such as various slab thicknesses with a range or reinforcement options, commonly used steel sections, and lifting lug capacities. Calculations are given for wind, seismic, vehicular, piping and other loads. User guides are included for Space Gass and Strand7, including a non-linear analysis example for lifting lugs. Users are also directed to popular vendor catalogues to acquire commonly used items, such as steel sections, handrails, grating, grouts, and lifting devices.
This book is an essential tool providing everything necessary for structural design engineers to create detailed and accurate calculations.
