There are many books about Structural Analysis. This book is about Structural Design. Examples of the design of successful structures actually teach us little about design. However, we can learn about design by studying cases of the failure of Civil Engineering Structures. The author has extensive academic and practical experience and has given seminars to practicing engineers on this subject many times over the last decade. He shares his experience in this book. The book consists of 50 case studies of failure as well as 21 worked examples used to illustrate the points made. Changes to our practice of design are suggested.
