Until now there has been no comprehensive pocket reference guide for professional and student structural engineers. The Structural Engineers Pocket Book is a unique compilation of all table, data, facts, formulae and rules of thumb needed for scheme design by structural engineers in the office, in transit or on site.

By bringing together data from many sources, this pocket book is a compact source of job-simplifying information at an affordable price. It is a first point of reference as well as saving valuable time spent trying to track down information that is needed on a daily basis.

This may be a small book in terms of its physical dimensions, but it contains a wealth of useful engineering knowledge. Concise and precise, the book is split into 13 sections, with quick and clear access to subject areas including: timber, masonry, concrete, aluminium and glass. British Standards are used and referenced throughout.

*the only book of its kind for structural engineers.

ka for active soil pressures on page 107 appears to be incorrect. Correct equation is ka = [1-sin(theta)]/[1+sin(theta)]
