The new second edition of the Structural Engineering Reference Manual (STRM2) is a comprehensive resource for SE candidates preparing for the NCEES Structural I and II and the California state (BPELS) structural exam. STRM2 has been updated to reflect the codes currently tested on the exams. Since the problems on all three SE exams are code-based, being familiar with and understanding the relevant codes is essential for exam success. The Structural Engineering Reference Manual is organized with this in mind. Appropriate sections of national codes are introduced and explained in a concise, straight-forward manner, illustrated with examples. Each example focuses on one specific code issue and supplies a clear interpretation of the applicable section of the code.
Eight chapters review the main topic areas covered on the SE exams:
Reinforced concrete design Foundations and retaining structures Prestressed concrete design Structural steel design Timber design Design of reinforced masonry Seismic design Design of bridges
There are practice problems, designed to test your understanding of the codes and concepts and to prepare you for the exam experience. Complete, step-by-step solutions are provided for all problems.
At the end of the book, appendices provide valuable tables and charts of information--saving you valuable time during the exam. The comprehensive index ensures that you can locate necessary information quickly when the pressure is on. And a separate index to every code mentioned in the Reference Manual allows easy access to references to AASHTO, AASHTOSD, ACI, AISC, ASD, BCRMS, LRFD, and LRFD2.
