    Structural Engineering Reference Manual, Print (Paperback), 6th Edition

    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:

    • ACI 318 (2008)

    • ACI 530/530.1 (2008)
