Structural Engineering free pdf Excerpt from Structural Engineering: Stresses, Graphical Statics and Masonry This volume, which is the third in my work on Structural Engineering, comprises: 1. The theory of statically determined framed structures, by analytical and graphical methods. The subject of graphical statics is presented in a comprehensive manner, showing how any problem of statics may be solved graphically as well as analytically. 2. The theory and design of masonry structures, giving the fundamental principles and the methods of their application, and the theory of earth pressure. Reinforced concrete is not treated in this volume. The next volume, which is nearly completed, will treat of the design of framed structures and of beams and girders, with the principles governing dimensioning- and it will also contain an extended chapter in which the theory and design of structures of reinforced concrete are discussed. Statically undetermined structures, such as the reinforced concrete arch, will be treated in the fifth and final volume of the series, which is about half completed. The present volume and the succeeding one contain essentially the course which the writer has been giving for many years at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and at Harvard University, considerably extended and brought to date. It is hoped that they will meet the needs of practicing engineers as well as of students in technical schools. A course of four years in a technical school, in the writers opinion, does not permit of doing more than two things, or rather, of attempting to do them, namely: 1. To train the student to think and to acquaint him with the principles governing scientific investigation. 2. To show him the elementary fundamental principles of the branches of engineering. Unless he has learned these two things, the student is not qualified to pursue the higher or more complicated branches of the subject with understanding. Realizing this, the writer has never attempted to teach statically undetermined structures in an undergraduate course. Many schools do attempt this- but from the writers experience it results in making the student do things which he is shown how to do, without clearly understanding why he is doing them- or else it results in a narrow specialization which prevents a student from being a broadly cultivated engineer. It is impossible to build securely on an insufficient foundation. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
