1. Structural Engineer’s Pocket Book by Fiona Cobb
This pocket book is like a bible for structural engineers. It’s small. So it saves time. Unlike your average USD160 college textbook, it is not expensive. It is a very comprehensive structural engineering reference guide that contains the most useful and basic rules of thumb, material information and properties, and design formulas. This book can used by students and even professional structural engineers. Best of all, if you ever think of taking the IStructE examination, this book is a must read!
2. Reinforced Concrete Design by Mosley and Bungee
Mosley mainly focuses on detailed design calculations in his book. There are a plethora of examples and explanations that help the reader understand complex detailed design methods. These examples help to explain structural theories in depth and provide a straightforward understanding to the practical methods of concrete detailed design.
3. ICE Manual of Structural Design: Buildings
This manual is very very detailed. Unlike the pocket book, it goes through concepts, detail by detail. However, since there are so many details, there are many illustrations that explain these details and some of structural engineering’s very complicated theories and concepts. One of this book’s special features is the case studies and issues that current professional structural engineers face today, such as risk management, computation analysis and design, and tolerances.
