Dieses Buch behandelt zentrale Ideen und Konzepte aus den verschiedensten Bereichen der Physik, die in üblichen Darstellungen oft tief unter technischen Details begraben liegen. Zudem werden Themen diskutiert, die wegen ihrer Vielschichtigkeit in den Grundvorlesungen keinen angestammten Platz haben. Diese Schlüsselkonzepte werden jeweils in kurzen Essays und ohne formalen Ballast so dargestellt, dass das Wesentliche klar zum Vorschein kommt. Das Buch bietet damit gleichsam eine Landkarte und eine Schatzkiste für das weite Feld der Physik. Das Buch eignet sich sowohl für Studierende der Physik ab etwa dem dritten Semester und auch für Leser mit allgemeinem naturwissenschaftlich-mathematischem Hintergrund und besonderem Interesse an der Physik.

"A complete guide to designing structures to better withstand the effects of fires of various growthsStructural Fire Loads: Theory and Principles combines the disciplines of structural engineering and fire protection engineering by offering a screening tool that can be used by engineers to perform preliminary assessments of fire as a load and its impact on structures. The book covers slow, medium, fast, and ultra-fast fire growth and fires in combination with seismic loads.Neither the 2009 IBC nor ASCE-7 considers fire a structural design load in buildings when prescriptive resistive design methods are used. However, the ICC Performance Code for Building and Facilities requires that the structural integrity of a building be evaluated and maintained to limit fire impact. This practical guide bridges the gap between structural engineering and fire protection engineering when fire is considered a design load.Structural Fire Loads features: Practical examples for fire protection and structural engineering design presented in a simple, step-by-step computational format Details on slow, medium, fast, and ultra-fast fire growth A Solutions Manual for equations presented in chapters 6 and 7 NIST Best Practices and Surveys for Fire Loads A single source that outlines how fire impacts structures Authoritative coverage: Overview of Current Practice; Structural Fire Load and Computer Models; Differential Equations and Assumptions; Simplifications of Differential Equations; Fire Load and Severity of Fires; Structural Analysis and Design"--
