Structural Engineer's Pocket Book: Eurocodes
About the book
Functions as a Day-to-Day Resource for Practicing Engineers... The hugely useful Structural Engineer's Pocket Book is now overhauled and revised in line with the Eurocodes. It forms a comprehensive pocket reference guide for professional and student structural engineers, especially those taking the IStructE Part 3 exam. With stripped-down basic material-tables, data, facts, formulae, and rules of thumb-it is directly usable for scheme design by structural engineers in the office, in transit, or on site. ...And a Core Reference for Students It brings together data from many different sources, and delivers a compact source of job-simplifying and time-saving information at an affordable price. It acts as a reliable first point of reference for information that is needed on a daily basis. This third edition is referenced throughout to the structural Eurocodes. After giving general information and details on actions on structures, it runs through reinforced concrete, steel, timber, and masonry. Provides essential data on steel, concrete, masonry, timber, and other main materials Pulls together material from a variety of sources for everyday work Serves as a first point of reference for structural and civil engineers A core structural engineering book, Structural Engineer's Pocket Book: Eurocodes, Third Edition benefits both students and industry professionals.
Now in its third edition, the Structural Engineer s Pocket Book remains a comprehensive pocket...
" ... this excellent little book should remain an important first reference tool for practising engineers and students alike." -Civil Engineering Journal, October 2015 "All in all, the reviewer would wholeheartedly like to commend this concise and yet informative pocket book as an essential reference for all current practitioners as well as for the next generation of engineers." -ICE Proceedings-Structures-Buildings Journal, 2015 "The book, in its previous editions, has been an essential companion of practising engineers, as well as of students of structural design. The new edition fills a great need to provide the essential data for anyone who may be required to use Eurocodes. This applies to practising engineers as well as undergraduate and postgraduate students of structural design." -Kuldeep S Virdi, Professor Emeritus, City University, London, UK
Fiona Cobb Biography
Fiona Cobb, FIStructE, is a British structural engineer and author of The Structural Engineer's Pocket Book. The pocket book was first published in 2003 and is in its 3rd Edition having sold nearly 40,000 copies and is part of the structural engineering exhibit in the mathematics gallery at London's Science Museum. Worldwide sales of the book exceed the 27,000 members of the Institution of Structural Engineers and the average 10,000 lifetime sales for non-fiction UK books.Cobb was a STEM Ambassador early in her career, volunteering in schools and writing in the national press. She won the ACE's Young Consultant of the Year, 2007 for having published a core industry textbook before age 35 and being a notable woman in a male-dominated profession; the NCE/ACE judges citation said that “her belief in communicating the importance of the role of engineers in society is an example to all, as is the time she spends educating young people about why engineering is fun". Notable projects include The Weston Tower to the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Galleries at Westminster Abbey, the first structure to be added to the Abbey in 350 years. She has been a Conservation Accredited Engineer since 2009 and established Cobb & Company in 2019. In 2021, Cobb delivered the IStructE Sutherland History Lecture with Nina Baker on Forgotten Figures in Structural Engineering, presenting original research into the first two female members of the IStructE, Florence Mary Taylor (1926) and Mary Irvine (engineer) (1947).
