Cambridge's Jacques Heyman provides a thorough and intuitive understanding of masonry structures, such as arch bridges, Greek temples, and Gothic cathedrals. Although his approach is firmly scientific, Heyman does not use complex mathematics. Instead, he introduces the basis of masonry analysis, then considers individual structures, through lucid and informative text. 5 photos. 100 line diagrams. 3 tables.

Die bauaufsichtliche Einführung des Eurocode 6 ist für 2015 geplant. Der diesjährige Mauerwerk-Kalender befasst sich deshalb ergänzend zu den Ausgaben von 2012 und 2014 mit vertiefenden Fragestellungen der Bemessung. Einen weiteren Schwerpunkt bildet entsprechend seiner zunehmenden Bedeutung das Bauen im Bestand. Anspruchsvolle Instandsetzungsprojekte werden vorgestellt und das Tragverhalten historischer Bausubstanz wird erörtert. Daneben gibt ein Beitrag einen Ausblick auf die geplante Weiterentwicklung der Energieeinsparverordnung. Wie gewohnt werden auch im 40. Jahrgang sämtliche zulassungsbedürftige Neuentwicklungen und die Baustoffeigenschaften aller Mauerwerkarten, Mauersteine und Mauermörtel mit der Aktualität eines Jahrbuches vorgestellt.

During its long history Persian culture has played a fundamental role in, and has made major contributions to, human civilisation. During the last few decades, scholarly interest in Persian culture, including its history, archaeology, art and architecture, has accelerated research into Persian cultural heritage. Scientific studies have provided information about knowledge on which Persian traditional buildings are based and methodologies used for their preservation. This book gives comprehensive information about Persian architectural heritage for scholars, students and practicing engineers in civil, structural, architectural, hydraulic, and restoration engineering, and other related disciplines.

During the last few decades, scholarly interest in Persian culture, including its history, archaeology, art and architecture, has accelerated research into Persian cultural heritage. Scientific studies have provided information about knowledge on which Persian traditional buildings are based and methodologies used for their preservation. This book gives comprehensive information about Persian architectural heritage for scholars, students and practicing engineers in civil, structural, architectural, hydraulic, and restoration engineering, and other related disciplines. The book focuses on the structural features of heritage architecture. It describes the construction materials used in architectural heritage structures, traditional construction technology and structural analysis of architectural heritage, arches, vaults, and domes. The book is not only a reference work but also contains theory written in such a way that it appeals to practising engineers, as well as students and researchers.

The history of mechanics, and more particularly, the history of mechanics applied to constructions, constitutes a field of research that is relatively recent. This volume, together with the recent publication "Towards a History of Construction", is intended as an homage to the two eminent scholars who made a determinant contribution to the history of mechanics: Edoardo Benvenuto and Clifford Truesdell.

Gläserne Netzkuppeln als Überdachungen veredeln Gebäude und städtebauliche Ensembles. Die konstruktiven und ökonomischen Vorteile sind zugleich gestalterische Vorteile: mit den Stahl-Glas-Konstruktionen werden Transparenz und Leichtigkeit assoziiert. Wenn die gefundene Form mit der Funktionalität einhergeht, dann wird dieses Versprechen eingelöst. Das vorliegende Buch ist die erste umfassende und lehrreiche Darstellung von Entwurf, Konstruktion und Berechnung filigraner, doppeltgekrümmter, weitgespannter verglaster Schalen. Anschaulich und leicht nachvollziehbar werden die Geometrieprinzipien zum Entwurf der Schalentragwerke erläutert, die mit Modulen von handelsüblichen CAD-Programmen leicht anzuwenden sind. Es wird gezeigt, wie fließende und homogene Strukturen für nahezu beliebige Formen erzeugt werden können, insbesondere Stabstrukturen aus ebenen Vierecken, die sich für die Verglasung mit ebenen Scheiben eignen. Anhand von ausgeführten Beispielen werden die neuesten Methoden der Formfindungsberechnung und Optimierung durch die komplexe Interaktion von Statik, Form und Topologie praxisnah erklärt. Im Ergebnis stehen geistreiche Netzkonstruktionen mit minimalem Gewicht. Hier besonders zeigt sich die berufene Hand des Autors: zahlreiche weltweit gebaute Beispiele aus den Jahren 1989 bis 2014, darunter das Flusspferdehaus im Zoo Berlin (1997), die Glaskonstruktionen der DZ Bank in Berlin (1998), und die Messe Mailand (2005), dienen der Orientierung und Hilfestellung bei der Planung. Die wesentlichen Entwurfsparameter, die Netzstrukturen und die Knotendetails werden vorgestellt und bewertet. Das gesammelte, bei schlaich bergermann und partner erarbeitete Wissen bezüglich der transparenten Schalentragwerke, wurde hier aufbereitet und der Fachwelt zur Verfügung gestellt.

Edoardo Benvenuto was born in Genoa on December 11, 1940. From 1965 to 1974 Edoardo Benvenuto worked at the Istituto Ligure Ricerche Economiche e Sociali (ILRES) as a researcher in Urban Studies, and also had an illustrious academic career in the Faculty of Engineering at Genoa University. In 1975 he was called to teach at the new Faculty of Architecture in Genoa; he became ist Dean in 1979 and remained in this post until 1997. While carrying out his institutional work, Benvenuto also maintained his interests in other studies concerning scientific, philosophic and theological thought. In recognition of his great devotion to work both as a teacher and researcher, in 1996 he was elected member of the UNESCO Committee for Exact Sciences; he also collaborated with the Committee for Culture. In 1997 the Order of Architects in Genoa made him an honorary member of the "Roll of Honour." In 1998 he became President of the Ligurian Academy of Science and Letters. He died in Genoa on November 27, 1998. On the first anniversary of the death of Edoardo Benvenuto, the Association "Associazione Benvenuto" chose to commemorate his scientific personality by holding an International Seminar "Homage to Edoardo Benvenuto" in Genoa from November 29, to December 1, 1999. On that occasion scholars of structural mechanics, architectural restoration and history of science, mathematics, architecture and construction presented the results of their research, thus reflecting the multiplicity of the interests he cultivated. With these proceedings, the Edoardo Benvenuto Association wishes to add its contribution to the research programme begun in 1993 with the Symposium "Between Mechanics and Architecture," organised by E. Benvenuto and P. Radelet de Grave and held during the XIX International Congress of History of Science, Zaragoza 1993.
