Each month the ICE Library team selects a new title from our ever-growing collection to feature as ‘book of the month’. This month, a straightforward introduction to how structures work.
Title: How structures work – Design and Behaviour from Bridges to Buildings, 2nd edition
Author: Yeomans, David
Of course you know all this already, but if you are looking for an easy to understand introduction on how structures work, this is it.
The book explains the basic principles in short, well-illustrated chapters, including a new chapter on engineering materials, and uses plenty of real-life examples.
Although it is aimed at engineering and architecture students, the straightforward, non-mathematical approach makes the book accessible to a wider audience.
The book is available for borrowing from the ICE Library. You can request it online through the Library catalogue or contact us on 020 7665 2254 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
But enough from us, we want to hear from you. If you have borrowed any fascinating/essential engineering books that you think your colleagues must read, please let us know for next month's newsletter.
We're making some space in the Library at the moment, so if you want to pick up a bargain book, we've got some titles on sale.
