Design of Structural Elements (Paperback)W.M.C. McKenzie (author)
This classic and well-respected textbook provides the most comprehensive coverage of the process of design for structural elements and features a wealth of practical problems and real-world examples. It introduces readers to the design requirements of the Eurocodes for the four most commonly used materials in construction: concrete, steel, timber and masonry, and illustrates the concepts and calculations necessary for the design of the most frequently encountered basic structural elements. It includes a detailed section on structural analysis.
The scope of this text is wide, and its numerous examples, problems and easy-to-follow diagrams make it an ideal course text.
This user-friendly text is an indispensable resource both for undergraduates in all years of civil engineering and structural engineering, in construction and architecture, and for practising engineers looking to refresh their knowledge.

Review of the first edition: 'The author has provided an excellent text for undergraduate students. The book compares favourably with other texts, above all in the number of examples which are typical of industry rather than just academic. This book would be one recommended for the structural design courses at this School particularly because of the 'real examples'...' - David Easterbrook, Senior Lecturer in the School of Civil and Structural Engineering, University of Plymouth, UK
