Preface ByThe Editors:
The primary objective of this new edition of the CRC Handbook of Structural Engineering is to provide advanced students and practicing engineers with a useful reference to gain knowledge from and seek solutions to a broad spectrum of structural engineering problems. The myriad of topics covered in this handbook will serve as a good resource for readers to review standard practice and to keep abreast of new developments in the field. Since the publication of the first edition, a number of new and exciting developments have emerged in the field of structural engineering. Advanced analysis for structural design, performancebased design of earthquake resistant structures, life cycle evaluation, and condition assessment of existing structures, the use of high-performance materials for construction, and design for fire safety are some examples. Likewise, a number of design specifications and codes have been revised by the respective codification committees to reflect our increased understanding of structural behavior. All these developments and changes have been implemented in this new edition. In addition to updating, expanding, and rearranging some of the existing chapters to make the book more informative and cohesive, the following topics have been added to the new edition: fundamental theories of structural dynamics; advanced analysis; wind and earthquake resistant design; design of prestressed concrete, masonry, timber, and glass structures; properties, behavior, and use of highperformance steel, concrete, and fiber-reinforced polymers; semirigid frame structures; life cycle evaluation and condition assessment of existing structures; structural bracing; and structural design for fire safety. The inclusion of these new chapters should enhance the comprehensiveness of the handbook. 

For ease of reading, the chapters are divided into six sections. Section I presents fundamental principles of structural analysis for static and dynamic loads. Section II addresses deterministic and probabilistic design theories and describes their applications for the design of structures using different construction materials. Section III discusses high-performance materials and their applications for structural design and rehabilitation. Section IV introduces the principles and practice of seismic and performance-based design of buildings and bridges. Section V is a collection of chapters that address the behavior, analysis, and design of various special structures such as multistory rigid and semirigid frames, short- and long-span bridges, cooling towers, as well as tunnel and glass structures. Section VI is a miscellany of topics of interest to structural engineers. In this section are included materials related to connections, effective length factors, bracing, floor system, fatigue, fracture, passive and active control, life cycle evaluation, condition assessment, and fire safety. 

Like its previous edition, this handbook stresses practical applications and emphasizes easy implementations of the materials presented. To avoid lengthy and tedious derivations, many equations, tables, and charts are given in passing without much substantiation. Nevertheless, a succinct discussion of the essential elements is often given to allow readers to gain a better understanding of the underlying theory, and many chapters have extensive reference and reading lists and websites appended at the end for engineers and designers who seek additional or more in-depth information. While all chapters in this handbook are meant to be sufficiently independent of one another, and can be perused without first having proficiency in the materials presented in other chapters, some prerequisite knowledge of the fundamentals of structures is presupposed. This handbook is the product of a cumulative effort from an international group of academicians and practitioners, who are authorities in their fields, graciously sharing their extensive knowledge and invaluable expertise with the structural engineering profession. The authors of the various chapters in this handbook hail from North America, Europe, and Asia. Their scientific thinking and engineering practice are reflective of the global nature of engineering in general, and structural engineering in particular. Their participation in this project is greatly appreciated. Thanks are also due to Cindy Carelli (acquisitions editor), Jessica Vakili (project coordinator), and the entire production staff of CRC Press for making the process of producing this handbook more enjoyable.
