Book Description

The Structural Engineer's Pocket Book British Standards Edition is the only compilation of all tables, data, facts and formulae needed for scheme design to British Standards 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.

This second edition is a companion to the more recent Eurocode third edition.

Although small in size, this book contains the facts and figures needed for preliminary design whether in the office or on-site. Based on UK conventions, it is split into 14 sections including geotechnics, structural steel, reinforced concrete, masonry and timber, and includes a section on sustainability covering general concepts, materials, actions and targets for structural engineers.
