Book Description

14 Nov 2008
The Structural Engineer's Pocket Book is the only compilation of all tables, data, facts and formulae needed for scheme design by structural engineers in a handy-sized format. Bringing together data from many sources into a compact, affordable pocketbook, it saves valuable time spent tracking down information needed regularly.

This new and improved edition has been updated throughout, expanding previous chapters and reflecting changes to the British Standards, as well as including a whole new section on sustainability covering general concepts, materials, actions and targets for structural engineers.

Although small in size, this book contains the facts and figures needed for preliminary design whether in the office, on-site or in the IStructE Part 3 Exam. Based on UK conventions, it is split into 14 sections including geotechnics, structural steel, reinforced concrete, masonry and timber.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good in theory, but poorly executed 15 Jun 2006
Format:Paperback
I would tend to agree with the other reviews on this book. However, when put to practice there are numerous typographical errors that change the fundamental meaning of many of the tables and equations leaving the reader in doubt over their validity. This book could really do with a second edition, following a comprehensive proof read and check!

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Structural Reference Book 14 Sep 2004
Format:Paperback
I have been a structural engineer for 2 years now and I had to refer back to the different codes many times a day for simple questions, now I use this book instead. Also, since I bought it into the office everyone else in the office has got their own one.

5.0 out of 5 stars a brilliant little book 2 Feb 2004
Format:Paperback
this book has been a life saver for me since i bought it. i have just started work as a structural engineer and for the first couple of months i did nothing but annoy my fellow workers by continually asking them questions and seeking their advice. since getting this book i have had to ask far fewer questions and thus my co-workers have received a well earned break from me. i no longer recive death stares from them and all in all the world is a much happier place.

5.0 out of 5 stars Book review 9 Feb 2009
By Mark
Format:Paperback
Book required for structual info. Book contained all relevant information to pass building regs and planning application. Had no knowledge of building regs so purchased book and got all building regs passed with local council saving me paying out for a local company. Easy to understand and in basic terms. Not like must books long winded. Would recommend if building an extension.

3.0 out of 5 stars Chris 25 Jun 2008
Format:Paperback
A useful book but not without errors. Will have to be updated for the introduction of the Eurocodes. It covers the main structural materials and basic modes of analysis although it does focus on elastic analysis only touching on plastic w.r.t Yield Line Analysis of RC slabs.
Could include more plastic design of steel members and frames (inc. instantaneous centres).

4.0 out of 5 stars Structural Engineer's Pocket Book 15 Aug 2006
Format:Paperback
A valuable reference book. It would be hard to improve on the basic format. As someone else has mentioned, there are one or two typos (I assume the publisher is dealing with this) but I'd still not be put off by these: the book is worth its weight in gold as an everyday reference.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some problem with the binding 24 May 2008
Format:Paperback
There is some problem with the binding of this book. We bought some copies a year back and they are falling apart. Mine started falling apart after half a month of use.

Otherwise a Structural Pocket Book like this for the british marked is a fine idea and is much needed. This one does however not seem to be competitive to what one can find for other countries and there are quite a few errors in it.
