    The Structural Engineering Reference Manual prepares you for the NCEES 16-hour structural engineering (SE) exam. It covers all exam topics and provides a comprehensive review of structural analysis and design methods. Exam-adopted codes and standards are frequently referenced, and solving methods—including strength design for timber and masonry—are thoroughly explained. You will learn how to apply concepts pertaining to vertical and lateral forces by reviewing the 244 example problems. You will also strengthen your problem-solving skills by working the 44 end-of-chapter practice problems. Each problem’s complete solution lets you check your own solving approach. New for the 8th edition, both ASD and LRFD/SD solutions and explanations are provided for masonry problems, allowing you to familiarize yourself with different problem solving methods.


    Access to supportive information is just as important as knowledge and problem-solving efficiency. The Structural Engineering Reference Manual’s thorough index easily directs you to the codes and concepts you will need during the exam. Cross references to more than 700 equations, 60 tables, 190 figures, 8 appendices, and relevant codes will point you to additional support material when you need it.

    Referenced Codes and Standards

    • AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications (AASHTO)
    • Building Code Requirements and Specification for Masonry Structures (TMS 402/602)
    • Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete (ACI 318)

    Concrete Design for the Civil PE and Structural SE Exams presents the concrete design and analysis methods most needed by civil and structural engineering students.The book’s 12 chapters provide a concise but thorough review of concrete theory, code application, design principles, and structural analysis. The 51 example problems demonstrate how to apply concepts, codes, and equations, and over 40 figures and tables provide essential support material. A complete nomenclature list defines the industry-standard variables and symbols used in each chapter.

    This book includes code references to familiarize you with exam-adopted codes, such as ASCE7 and ACI 318. It also includes 35 multiple-choice problems and 2 scenario-based design problems to enhance your problem-solving skills. Each problem’s complete solution lets you check your solving approach. On exam day, you can use this book’s thorough index to quickly locate important codes and concepts.
     

    The NCEES recently adopted the 2014 edition of the ACI 318 code for the 2016 Civil PE exams.  This adoption occurred post-publication of Concrete Design for the Civil PE and Structural SE Exams.  For your reference and convenience, we have included a PDF that cross references the 2011 ACI 318 and the 2014 ACI 2014. You may access the PDF by clicking here.  PPI is committed to supporting you in your efforts towards licensure, and providing the highest-quality content for your preparation.

    Timber Design for the Civil and Structural PE Exams is a comprehensive study guide that uses the inductive teaching method to help readers apply the ASD/LRFD national Design Specifications to realistic problem scenarios, and understand the design theories the solving methods are based on. Design examples and scenario-based practice problems will help you apply what you learn, whether you are preparing for the Civil PE or Structural Engineering (SE) exams, are a student in a timber design course, or are a practicing engineer.

    Note: The Civil PE structural depth and the SE exam codes and standards have changed as of October 2014. You can reference the current Civil PE Exam specifications and codes here, and the current SE exam specifications and codes here. While specific codes, equations, or values may change from one edition of a design or reference standard to the next, PPI’s books continue to provide an appropriate overview of the design concepts presented, and will prepare you for the 2015 exams.
