Each problem provides an opportunity to apply your knowledge of structural engineering concepts. The breadth of topics covered and the varied complexities of the problems allow you to assess and strengthen your problem-solving skills. Problems in both qualitative and quantitative formats are included, and solutions use the same codes and standards adopted for the exam. Step-by-step solutions are used to solve numerical problems, and detailed explanations are given for qualitative problems.

HOW TO USE THIS BOOK
Structural Engineering Solved Problems is intended to be used as part of your exam review for the civil structural PE depth exam and the 16-hour structural SE exam, both prepared by the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES). As such,it provides a comprehensive set of 100 solved problems, which are categorized into chapters that encompass the broad categories found on these exams. These categories are structural analysis, structural concrete design, structural steel design, seismic design, foundations and retaining structures, timber design, and masonry design.
The chapters may be worked in any order, but it is recommended that you work only one chapter at a time. Problems should be worked sequentially, as they are arranged in order of increasing complexity. As a rough guide, the first quarter of a chapter consists of two types of problems. The first type includes qualitative problems that require specific short answers rather than calculations or sketches. These problems cover a broad range of topics and may be used to prepare for the multiple-choice problems of the civil PE and structural SE exams. The second type includes basic quantitative problems that will require 30 to 45 minutes to solve. The middle half of the chapter consists of more difficult quantitative problems that will require 1 hour to solve. The last quarter of a chapter consists of in-depth quantitative problems that will require 1.5 to 2 hours to solve. These latter problems are similar in scope to those found on the depth sections of the structural SE exam.
