Metal Building Systems: Design and Specifications by Alexander Newman pdf free download.

Over 65 percent of low-rise buildings constructed in Europe today feature metal building systems. Newman offers design guidelines and provides roof-to-foundation understanding of all design tasks involved in specifying or evaluating these systems.

The foundations for pre-engineered steel buildings are somewhat unique in the field of architectural engineering and pose some design problems that have to be addressed in the field. For quite awhile I’ve looked for an engineering book that discusses and gives guidance on those issues. Most of the ones I’ve found in the past, briefly touch on the subject and then say “consult your local structural engineer”. Well, I am the local structural engineer.

So I was happy to find this book which does discuss those issues (lateral loads, moment resisting foundations, etc.) in a way that can be used in the real world, specifically with the construction techniques typically used for metal buildings, complete with optional approaches and sample calculations.

I would recommend it highly for anyone who designs foundations for metal buildings.

As an Engineer with a Master’s Degree in Structural Engineering and General Contractor in South Florida, I found this book to be invaluable for someone that needs a comprehensive reference on Metal Buildings specially on standing seam metal roofing. I will recommend to any collegue or building design professional. Thanks for a well written book.
This book provides a good overview of metal building design and construction. It covers the design of the buildings themselves, as well as the design of the foundations to support the buildings, which is normally done by an outside structural engineer.
Great book. Lots of varied topics explained in depth.

Reverse Engineering: Mechanisms, Structures, Systems & Materials by Robert Messler free download.

A comprehensive look at reverse engineering as a legitimate learning, design, and troubleshooting tool

This unique book examines the often underappreciated and occasionally maligned technique of reverse engineering. More than a shortcut for the lazy or unimaginative to reproduce an artless copy of an existing creation, reverse engineering is an essential brick – if not a keystone – in the pathway to a society’s technological advancement.

Written by an engineer who began teaching after years in industry, Reverse Engineering reviews this meticulous analytical process with a breadth and depth as never before. Find out how to:

  • Learn by “mechanical dissection”
  • Deduce the role, purpose, and functionality of a designed entity
  • Identify materials-of-construction and methods-of-manufacture by observation alone
  • Assess the suitability of a design to purpose from form and fit

The rich heritage of engineering breakthroughs enabled by reverse engineering is also discussed. This is not a dry textbook. It is the engaging and enlightening account of the journey of engineering from the astounding creations of ancient cultures to what, with the aid of reverse engineering, promises to be an even more astounding future!

Coverage includes:

  • Methods of product teardown
  • Failure analysis and forensic engineering
  • Deducing or inferring role, purpose, and functionality during reverse engineering
  • The Antikythera mechanism
  • Identifying materials-of-construction
  • Inferring methods-of-manufacture or -construction
  • Construction of Khufu’s pyramid
  • Assessing design suitability
  • Value and production engineering
  • Reverse engineering of materials and substances
  • Reverse engineering of broken, worn, or obsolete parts for remanufacture
  • The law and the ethics of reverse engineering
Reverse Engineering should be regarded as an essential skill in the 21st century. Great work by the author to introduce this useful discipline.

Complex Engineered Systems: Science Meets Technology pdf free download by Dan Braha, Ali A. Minai, Yaneer Bar-Yam

Description:

Recent advances in science and technology have led to a rapid increase
in the complexity of most engineered systems. In many notable cases,
this change has been a qualitative one rather than merely one of magnitude.
A new class of Complex Engineered Systems (CES) has emerged as a result
of technologies such as the Internet, GPS, wireless networking, micro-robotics, MEMS, fiber-optics and nanotechnology.

This book sheds light on the large-scale engineering systems that shape and guide our everyday lives. It does this by bringing together the latest research and practice defining the emerging field of Complex Engineered Systems. Understanding, designing, building and controlling such complex systems is going to be a central challenge for engineers in the coming decades. This book is a step toward addressing that challenge.

From the Back Cover

Every time that we take money out of an ATM, surf the internet or simply turn on a light switch, we enjoy the benefits of complex engineered systems. Systems like power grids and global communication networks are so ubiquitous in our daily lives that we usually take them for granted, only noticing them when they break down. But how do such amazing technologies and infrastructures come to be what they are? How are these systems designed? How do distributed networks work? How are they made to respond rapidly in ‘real time’? And as the demands that we place on these systems become increasingly complex, are traditional systems-engineering practices still relevant?

This volume examines the difficulties that arise in creating highly complex engineered systems and new approaches that are being adopted. Topics addressed range from the formal representation and classification of distributed networked systems to revolutionary engineering practices inspired by biological evolution. By bringing together the latest research in Complex Engineered Systems, this book sheds light on the current state and future course of this emerging field.

Vulnerability Assessment of Physical Protection Systems by Mary Lynn Garcia pdf free download

Vulnerability Assessment of Physical Protection Systems by Mary Lynn Garcia pdf free download

Description:

Vulnerability Assessment of Physical Protection Systems will describe the entire vulnerability assessment (VA) process, from the start of planning through final analysis and out brief to senior management. The text will draw heavily on the principles introduced in the author’s best-selling Design and Evaluation of Physical Protection Systems and allow readers to apply those principles and conduct a VA that is aligned with system objectives and achievable with existing budget and personnel resources. The book will address the full spectrum of a VA, including negotiating tasks with the customer, project management and planning of the VA, team membership, step-by-step details for performing the VA, data collection and analysis, important notes on how to use the VA to suggest design improvements and generate multiple design options. The text will end with a discussion of how to out brief the results to senior management in order to gain their support and demonstrate the return on investment of their security dollar. Several new tools will be introduced to help readers organize and use the information at their sites and allow them to mix the physical protection system with other risk management measures to reduce risk to an acceptable level at an affordable cost and with the least operational impact.

– Guides the reader through the topic of physical security doing so with a unique, detailed and scientific approach
– Takes the reader from beginning to end and step-by-step through a Vulnerability Assessment
– Over 150 figures and tables to illustrate key concepts

Review

“As one reads this current book… it becomes apparent it is not for neophytes. This book … is for grown-ups. In fact, that formula, and the charts, forms, checklists that make up the seven appendices are the very real, very important take-aways obtained from the very real, but very worthwhile effort expended reading and understanding this book” — Canadian Security.

Guidelines for Mechanical Integrity Systems by Center for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS) pdf free download

Guidelines for Mechanical Integrity Systems by Center for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS) pdf free download

Description:

In recent years, process safety management system compliance audits have revealed that organizations often have significant opportunities for improving their Mechanical Integrity programs. As part of the Center for Chemical Process Safety’s Guidelines series, Guidelines for Mechanical Integrity Systems provides practitioners a basic familiarity of mechanical integrity concepts and best practices. The book recommends efficient approaches for establishing a successful MI program.

Review

“…an excellent overview of all aspects of mechanical integrity systems…should be very useful for any engineer…” (Journal of Loss Prevention in the Process Industries, January 2007)”…a thorough introduction to MI Systems for managers, quality control engineers and those who are responsible for maintaining systems.” (E-STREAMS, September 2007)

Excellent technical reference for anyone trying to implement or upgrade a mechanical integrity program. The section on equipment specific integrity management was exactly what I was looking for. It summarizes input from multiple standards and codes to provide a clear basis for how to justify what, how frequently and why you are doing the things in your mechanical integrity program. I wish someone had told me about this reference six months ago, it would have saved me a lot of work.

About the Author
