Leslie Robertson is one of the preeminent structural engineers of the modern era. With hundreds of projects to his credit, his close collaborations with such greats as Minoru Yamasaki, Philip Johnson, Romaldo Giurgola, I. M. Pei, and Gunnar Birkerts has resulted in the production of some of the most structurally innovative and formally daring buildings of the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. Among Robertson's advances in engineering are the invention of mechanical damping units to reduce wind-induced swaying, the first use of prefabricated multiple-column and spandrel-wall panels to allow column-free interior space and resist hurricane-level winds, and the shaftwall system for fire-resistive walls now used almost universally in high-rise buildings. In this memoir, Robertson recounts a long and storied career that stretches back to the 1950s. A restless student with unremarkable performance, it was almost by accident that he first engaged with engineering, but in his earliest projects his eye toward innovation was apparent. Still in his early thirties, he was lead engineer on the landmark IBM buildings in Pittsburgh and Seattle, and immediately thereafter embarked on what would become his signature achievement-which met a tragic end witnessed across the globe-the World Trade Center towers. A personal and accessible recounting of his partnerships with architects to create classics of modern architecture-including Harrison & Abramovitz's US Steel headquarters, Philip Johnson's AT&T Building, and I.M. Pei's Bank of China building and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum-The Structure of Designprovides a privileged look at how the almost invisible but crucial discipline of engineering influences design, as told by a genius and poet of structure.

A hands-on book design students and designers alike will welcome. Elements of Design is a tribute to an exceptional teacher and a study of the abstract visual relationships that were her lifelong pursuit. Rowena Reed Kiostellow taught industrial design at Pratt Institute for more than fifty years and the designers she trained-and the designers they're training today-have changed the face of American design. This succinct, instructive, invaluable book reconstructs the series of exercises that led Kostellow's students from the manipulation of simple forms to the creation of complex solutions to difficult design problems. It includes her exercises and commentary along with selected student solutions, and concludes with examples of work from former students who became leaders in the field, including such well-known figures as Tucker Viemeister, Ralph Applebaum, Ted Muehling, and many others.

International Series of Monographs in Aeronautics and Astronautics, Division 1: Solid and Structural Mechanics, Volume 8: The Design of Structures of Least Weight focuses on the design of structures. This book reviews the considerations that determine the minimal structure weight and illustrates how these considerations may be expected to influence design. Topics discussed include the theory in design, structure loading coefficients and struts, wide struts, panels, and design of beams to transmit pure bending. The design of cantilevers, detail design of braced frames, basic theory of layout, and layout in practical design are also deliberated in this publication. This volume is recommended for design engineers and specialists intending to acquire knowledge of design structures of least weight.

Complexity Metrics In Engineering Design

This book presents the results of several years’ research work on how to characterize complexity in engineering design with a specific regard to dependency modeling. The 52 complexity metrics that are presented show different facets of how complexity takes shape in design processes. The metrics are supported by a modeling method and a measurement framework to employ the metrics in a goal-oriented manner. The detailed description of all involved metrics and models makes it possible to apply the analysis approach to common process modeling methodologies. Three case studies from automotive process management illustrate the application to facilitate the transfer to other cases in an industrial context. The comprehensive appendix supplies additional details and checklists for structural analysis to generate a complete overview of current means of structural analysis.

Designed primarily as a text for the undergraduate students of civil engineering, this compact and well-organized text presents all the basic topics of reinforced concrete design in a comprehensive manner. The text conforms to the limit states design method as given in the latest revision of Indian Code of Practice for Plain and Reinforced Concrete, IS: 456 (2000). This book covers the applications of design concepts and provides a wealth of state-of-the-art information on design aspects of wide variety of reinforced concrete structures. However, the emphasis is on modern design approach. The text attempts to: • Present simple, efficient and systematic procedures for evolving design of concrete structures. • Make available a large amount of field tested practical data in the appendices. • Provide time saving analysis and design aids in the form of tables and charts. • Cover a large number of worked-out practical design examples and problems in each chapter. • Emphasize on development of structural sense needed for proper detailing of steel for integrated action in various parts of the structure. Besides students, practicing engineers and architects would find this text extremely useful.

"Rowena Reed Kostellow taught industrial design at Pratt Institute for more than fifty years. There she developed the course of study that became the foundation for design classes around the world. This program - and the fundamental exercises on abstract visual relationships featured here - became her life-long pursuit. Rowena Reed Kostellow, the designers she trained, and the designers they in turn trained, have changed the face of American design forever."--BOOK JACKET.
