Overview

The Structural Engineering Reference Manual is the most comprehensive reference and study guide available for engineers preparing for the NCEES Structural I and Structural II exams and the California state structural exam. Nearly 40 practice problems with step-by-step solutions help sharpen your problem solving skills and demonstrate how to arrive at solutions most efficiently. Numerous charts, tables, and figures make it possible to work most exam problems using just the Reference Manual. A complete, easy-to-use index will save you valuable time during the exam when it helps you to quickly locate important information needed to solve problems.

The structural PE exams require a thorough familiarity with relevant codes, and the Structural Engineering Reference Manual, Fourth Edition, is updated to the latest exam code specifications. The updated codes include 2005 edition of AISC, 2005 edition of NDS, 2005 editions of ACI 318 and ACI 530/ASCE 5/TMS 402, 2004 edition of AASHTO, 2005 edition of ASCE 7, 2006 edition of IBC. The Structural Engineering Reference Manual is part of PPI's best-selling exam review series, used by more than 1 million engineers to prepare for their licensing exams.

PART 1: HOW TO USE THIS BOOK

This Structural Engineering Reference Manual is intended to help you prepare for the 16-hour Structural Engineering (SE) exam administered by the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES). The NCEES SE exam will test your knowledge of structural principles by presenting problems that cover the design of an entire structure or portion of a structure. The exam is given in four modules—two concerning vertical forces and two concerning lateral forces. The eight chapters of this book are organized around the eight areas in which these forces are applied.

These eight areas include

• reinforced concrete design
• foundations and retaining structures
• prestressed concrete design
• structural steel design
• timber design
• reinforced masonry design
• lateral forces (wind and seismic)
• bridge design

Each chapter presents structural design principles thatbuild on the ones before, so you should read the chapters in the order in which they are presented. The examples in each chapter should also be read in sequence. Taken together in this way, they constitute the solution to a complete design problem similar to that on the exam.

Your solutions to the NCEES SE exam problems must be based on the NCEES-adopted codes and design standards. Therefore, you should carefully review the appropriate sections of the exam-adopted design standards and codes that are presented, analyzed, and explained in each chapter of this book. The examples in this book also focus on one specific code principle and offer a clear interpretation of that principle.

Table 1 lists the NCEES SE design standards that code-based problems on the exam will reference. You will not receive credit for solutions based on other editions or standards. All problems are in customary U.S. (English) units, and you will not receive credit for solutions using SI units.

Abbreviations are used throughout this book to refer to the design standards and codes referenced by the NCEES SE exam. This book's “Codes and References section lists these abbreviations in brackets after their appropriate design standard or code. This book also cites other publications that discuss pertinent structural design procedures, which may also be found in the “Codes” section. Text references to any other publications are numbered as endnotes in each chapter, and the publications are cited in the “References” section that precedes each chapter’s practice problems. These references are provided for your additional review.”
