Overview

The Structural Engineering Reference Manual is the most comprehensive reference and study guide available for engineers preparing for the NCEES 16-hour Structural Engineering (SE) exam. It provides a comprehensive review of structural analysis and design methods related to vertical and lateral forces, illustrates the most useful equations in the exam-adopted codes and standards, and provides guidelines for selecting and applying these equations.

The SE exam requires a thorough familiarity with relevant codes, and the Structural Engineering Reference Manual, 6th Edition, provides coverage of the following:

  • AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design (2010)
  • ACI 318 (2008)
  • ACI 530/530.1 (2008)
  • AISC 13th edition (2005)
  • ASCE 7 (2005)
  • IBC (2009)
  • NDS (2005)
  • PCI (2004)
The Most Trusted Reference for the SE Exam
  • More than 225 example problems with complete solutions
  • More than 45 end-of-chapter problems with complete solutions
  • More than 700  equations136 tables, 140 figures, and 8 appendices
  • A complete and easy-to-use index
Exam Topics Covered
  • Reinforced Concrete
  • Foundations & Retaining Structures
  • Prestressed Concrete
  • Structural Steel
  • Timber
  • Reinforced Masonry
