Following the great progress made in computing technology, both in computer and programming technology, computation has become one of the most powerful tools for researchers and practicing engineers. It has led to tremendous achievements in computer-based structural engineering and there is evidence that current devel- ments will even accelerate in the near future. To acknowledge this trend, Tongji University, Vienna University of Technology, and Chinese Academy of Engine- ing, co-organized the International Symposium on Computational Structural En- neering 2009 in Shanghai (CSE’09). CSE’09 aimed at providing a forum for presentation and discussion of sta- of-the-art development in scientific computing applied to engineering sciences. Emphasis was given to basic methodologies, scientific development and engine- ing applications. Therefore, it became a central academic activity of the Inter- tional Association for Computational Mechanics (IACM), the European Com- nity on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences (ECCOMAS), The Chinese Society of Theoretical and Applied Mechanic, the China Civil Engineering So- ety, and the Architectural Society of China. A total of 10 invited papers, and around 140 contributed papers were p- sented in the proceedings of the symposium. Contributors of papers came from 20 countries around the world and covered a wide spectrum related to the compu- tional structural engineering.
This volume contains invited contributions from eight of the Gold Medal winners of the Institution of Structural Engineers, presented at the seminar held to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the granting of the Royal Charter to the Institution. The authors are among the pre-eminent engineers of the latter half of the twentieth century, and are of international renown.
Information Technology for Design, Collaboration, Maintenance, and Monitoring

This book presents the state of the art of artificial intelligence techniques applied to structural engineering. The 28 revised full papers by leading scientists were solicited for presentation at a meeting held in Ascona, Switzerland, in July 1998. The recent advances in information technology, in particular decreasing hardware cost, Internet communication, faster computation, increased bandwidth, etc., allow for the application of new AI techniques to structural engineering. The papers presented deal with new aspects of information technology support for the design, analysis, monitoring, control and diagnosis of various structural engineering systems.
Covering the broad spectrum of modern structural engineering topics, the Handbook of Structural Engineering is a complete, single-volume reference. It includes the theoretical, practical, and computing aspects of the field, providing practicing engineers, consultants, students, and other interested individuals with a reliable, easy-to-use source of information. Divided into three sections, the handbook covers:
Everything civil and structural engineers in California need to prepare for the seismic design topics of the Special Civil Engineering Exam and California Structural Engineering Exam. This guide emphasizes methods that lead to the quickest and simplest solution to any problem.
This book contains state-of-the-art review articles on specific research areas in the civil engineering discipline-the areas include geotechnical engineering, hydraulics and water resources engineering, and structural engineering. The articles are written by invited authors who are currently active at the international level in their respective research fields.
