In scientific publishing, two types of books provide essential cornerstones to a field of study: the textbook and the handbook. CRC Press is best known for its handbooks, a tradition dating back to 1913 with publication of the first edition of the Handbook of Chemistry and Physics. In recent years, we have had an increasing number of requests for reprintings of portions of our handbooks to fit a narrower scope of interest than the handbook. Because each chapter is written by an expert, these derivative works fill a niche between the general textbook and comprehensive handbook, and are suitable as supplemental reading for upper-level university courses or, in some cases, even as primary textbooks. We believe that researchers and professional engineers will also find this smaller and more affordable format useful when their requirements do not merit purchase of the entire handbook. This book is comprised of ten chapters reprinted from the Handbook of Structural Engineering, Second Edition, edited by Wai-Fah Chen and Eric M. Lui.
